As far as my tastes go, I'm gearing up to purchase this print: http://store.axismaps.com/product/san-fransisco-2nd-ed-black. I also am the proud owner of the Lord of the Rings info graphic featured on your very site (http://www.outblush.com/women/home/art-decor/lord-of-the-rings-infographic-screen-print/) but that bad boy lives in my living room. I'm pretty enamoured with this little guy as well: http://www.outblush.com/women/home/art-decor/murrays-art-print/ but as delightful as that print is, it's pretty tiny (and I'd rather put it in my home). So, my call for help is for some office-appropriate, yet interesting prints to glam up my second home. Price range is up to $100. Thank you!!!"
Well, hello there Emily! I am Found of You. We are friends in real life, so this was fun for me. Let's go!
1 - When you're in an office all day, it's nice to have something nature-y to look at, so consider this this Green is the color of longing - tall ancient trees in the California Hills ($35) print. Isn't the name totally emo?!
2 - You're a lawyer. This Vermont Lawyer Art Print Poster by Horace Bundy ($25) totally cracks me up. It's very serious and lawyerly.
3 - Sometimes you might get so busy you forget to eat. Don't let that happen! This Andy Warhol Hamburger Print ($9) will help remind you.
4 - You fight the law with other law, so I thought this might work: I Fought The Law And I Won by Banksy Canvas Painting Art Print ($40)
5 - The other day you were talking about how you don't know how you'll find the time to get to the gym now that you have a fancy job and are no longer a student with a more flexible schedule. This The Prison Exercise Yard Art Print Poster by Vincent Van Gogh ($25) will remind you that exercise is important for your health and happiness.
6 - If all else fails, facial hair: Dapper Men: 141 Famous Beards and/or Staches ($23)
