Like I’ve been ranting and raving about…I’m moving. Like, now. I am really committing to making this new apartment utter perfection, mostly because I can be sort of a messy person (understatement) and I want incentive to keep it nice and clean. That’s why I’m planning out what it will look like down to the last pillow…even though really it’s all in my head and I’m probably crazy because I can’t afford it to be as nice as I want it. That said, I have been buying stuff for my walls here and there. I really want them to be a nice little smattering. I have the Andy Warhol I posted, I have my Marilyn poster, and I have a really cute Wizard of Oz poster I need to have framed before I can do anything with it. I’ve been trying to find sketches from designers in poster format, but haven’t had any luck. I was just looking online at old Vogue shots and covers, and came across this beauty:
It’s from the October 1934 issue of Vogue, and it’s by René Bouét-Willaumez, who illustrated covers and other pieces for Vogue during the 30s and 40s, from what I can find online. I just love this one in particular soooo much. My problem is that I don’t want it without a bright white mat and a black frame. I don’t like how these things look without the mat. And the mat and frame together add around $60.
Also, I would kill to have these three in a set. I really need a job.
