I’m so excited to be here at Shutterfly today! Shutterfly is one of my favorite companies and I have been known a time or two to spend hours drooling over the products on their website. Especially the acrylic prints! Oh my goodness, they are gorgeous!
Before I continue my gush fest, let me tell you a little bit about my kitchen dreams. For the better part of a year, I’ve wanted to redecorate it. I knew that I wanted a French kitchen, but not the kind with the little chefs and “Bon Appétit” everywhere. I wanted something that I created; something that reflects my style and things that I love.
As luck would have it, my dream of going to Paris was about to come true! In January, I found out that my husband and I would get to make a trip to France! Instead of rushing my decorating, I decided to wait until we got to experience France for ourselves. Then I could make my French kitchen really French!
After we got home and were sifting through our thousands of photographs (we seriously did take that many!), I knew exactly what I wanted above my dining room table – our own beautiful pictures! That way, every day I could remember all of the wonderful things that we got to experience.
We chose a photo from our favorite place in France – the tiny village of Bayeux – to be the focal point of our wall. I got that photo printed in a huge 20×30 Acrylic Print and made it the center! I filled in the rest of the space (it’s a really big wall!) with other pictures that we took from Paris and Versailles. I love how the Acrylic Print stands off from the wall – almost as though it’s floating.
I love, love, love how it all turned out! And the best part about the Acrylic Print is the premium quality! It is heirloom quality and I could definitely be keeping it forever! It’s truly gorgeous! Next project: turning our wedding photo into an Acrylic Print!
