D.I.Y. Framed Paper

I never thought of paper an anything that special until I stumbled upon The Paper Place a few years ago. The store is located in Toronto's Queen West neighbourhood and has a zillion kinds of paper and basically anything you can think of related to stationary. I often pop by there and flip though their prints for D.I.Y. projects which have included using transparent paper to cover lights and framed paper as wall art.

This past weeknd I took my mother there to pick out some prints for her bathroom. Here are some of the blue prints she chose:
I used Ikea Nyttja frames and put them in her bathroom...
I am in the process of putting up some framed purple prints in her bedroom...
I couldn't decide what to put above my headboard for the longest time and framed paper turned out to be a good option. I chose dark purple prints to compliment my LILAC (big surprise lol!) bedspread. Check out these beautiful purple prints in Ikea Ribba frames that I put up this past fall. I love looking at them!
What do you think?
