Decorating with Street Signs: Part 6

Classic stop signIn my final post in this series, I’ll be featuring a stop sign. Of all the signs in my series, this one is the most classic! This sign would go well in any room, and blends well with any decor. The red will provide a pop of color to your space, while the white border creates a framing-effect on the sign. There are several ways to go about displaying a stop sign in your home. You could create a collage featuring multiple signs grouped together either on a wall or framed on a table. Alternatively, you could blow up a photo of a stop sign and make it the focal point on a wall. I hope you’ve enjoyed my series decorating with street signs. Stay tuned for more tips and ideas for decorating your space!

Art on Concrete

Art on concrete_turtleWhen most people take a walk, they tend to look around and survey their surroundings. But how often do you look down? I happened to look down on a recent walk, and was surprise by a work of art. The art (pictured right) was on the concrete near a bus stop. The design features a turtle, along with a wave pattern. I like that this art is discreet, and is only seen by those who happen upon it. Do you have any similar art in your community? If not, try taking a closer look next time you’re out. You’ll be surprised at what’s around you if you take the time to pay attention.
