This past weekend I went through the house and collected all of the little odds and ends that I thought might look nice hanging on the mudroom wall. The mudroom is viewable from the front entry, and we’ve been wondering how to make the stark white wall look more appealing. I tried a wall hanging there, then a mirror, but neither looked quite right. I finally decided to go with some pictures that we already have. Here’s what I came up with:
Everything in this collection has some meaning for us. This Minerva relief was my dad’s:
And the Latin plaque is a copy of one that is carved onto Carl Jung’s tomb. The small red Peruvian paintings are from Dave’s mom, as is the aluminum tree painting which she made. I took swatches of fabric and interesting bits of paper from greeting cards and put them into frames. The red frame on the top right holds a piece of fabric from Dave’s mom’s travels (it looks like another piece from Peru, but I can’t be sure).
It looks so much more welcoming than the former plain white wall.
