Unless you’re one of the famous ones (Great, Wailing), being a wall is a pretty thankless existence.
A lifetime of holding up ceilings and keeping out bad weather. And how do we thank them? By adorning them with taped-up Britney Spears posters and other visual insults. The only time we ever look at one with any real interest is when there’s a mirror hanging on it.
Time to show some appreciation. Get yourself an Ambriel Floyd wall hanging. Ambriel, the genius New York designer and fine artist, has launched a gorgeous home line based on her personal repertoire of images: birds, flowers, leaves, stars, bridges. The wall hangings are hand-printed works on canvas, so they’re real artwork — minus the prohibitive cost. Favorites include “Open Flower,” a cascade of bold color and strong shapes, and “Birds,” an Escher-esque repetition of bird forms that fills the canvas. Whether your sensibility is relentlessly sunny or sombre and brooding, there’s something that will work for you.
While you’re at it, you may want to pick up some of Ambriel’s equally beautiful pillowcases, napkins, and place mats.
Don’t even get us started on what your bed and dining room table go through.
