As far as I'm concerned, if Jules thinks they're scary he can look the other way, because I am EXCITED to hang these babies up in the new farmhouse.
Coincidentally, I just bumped into this piece, featured in the latest Architectural Digest (eye-roll). Granted, it's rather more GRAND than our little farmhouse, but I like the concept of lining a space with floor-to-ceiling old-paintings-of-old-people. Filing that away in my "to-do" file until we've properly moved into the farm.
Terrific inspiration all around!
