Black and White Wall Art for the Kitchen

Candice Bergen Quote

I didn’t like the white walls in the kitchen until I added our big black and white print. Now the walls look intentional instead of forgotten. I would love to recreate the print for you as a free printable for download (it wouldn’t be difficult), but it doesn’t feel right. I know the quote can be attributed to Candice Bergen, but I don’t know who created the print, or when. Instead, I’ve rounded up a few options for black and white wall art that would feel right at home in my kitchen — and maybe yours, too.

Black and White Wall Art for the Kitchen

  1. OMG CAKE

  2. Like Ron Swanson, I want you to give me all the bacon and eggs you have. (Wait, wait…)

  3. Butcher Prints (set of 3)

  4. This cute flag conversions tea towel, designed by Shanna Murray is no longer available, but the idea of framing it was so cute that I still wanted to include it here.

  5. This conversion tea towel could be a good substitute for the last one.

  6. This triangle tea towel would also look fantastic on display in the kitchen.

  7. These pretzels are making me thirsty. (Maybe he had a different interpretation!)

  8. Kitchen Cooking Print

  9. Newgate Bubble Clock

Traditional Art Gift Guide

I’ve been working with Art.com, and they’ve just released several gift guides for the holidays. I’m usually drawn to a quirky, modern style, but today I’m sharing my take on traditional art.

I chose each of these paintings (classics by the like of Manet and Whistler) because they excite me, but also because I could see them appealing to a wide range of people. I kept family members in mind, asking myself “would my mom like this? My grandma, or my uncle?” as my litmus test.

All-American Art

I saw the video below when I was in San Francisco a couple of months ago to meet with the Art.com team. It’s beautifully done, and the music swells at just the right point, but more than that, it shows how much pride they take in their framing process.

And here’s a bit of exciting news: Art.com is hosting a giveaway this week for a $500 shopping spree on their site! Follow them on Pinterest to be eligible and abreast of all the details.

Inspired by their American craftsmanship, I pulled together a few of my favorites from their Americana collection. (You know, so when you win that $500 shopping spree, you’ll have some ideas about what to get.)

  1. The Golden Nugget Gambling Hall Lighting Up Like a Candle (Eyerman)

  2. Man Waving from Empire State Building Construction Site

  3. Chicago, Illinois, 1941 (Rosskam)

  4. Coney Island, 1945 (Weegee)
