Commanding my attention

I've rarely met a gallery-style collection of photographs I didn't like...
But these days, I'm craving One. Giant. Statement. Photo.

Wild mustangs - at this scale, can't you just feel their sweet, grassy breath?
Marilyn's last photo session gone large and in charge in this glamorous dining room
Metal Hand/Foot chairs...um..O-kaaay...Liza and Warhol in a "kiss kiss" moment - fo sho!

More equine influence - this time in more classic mode. Photo by Kelly Klein, and featured in her Hampton ('course) home.

...Or,my personal fave: great pic of the kiddo(s) - Super Size it!
In Style Home
If you dig the animal theme - Ikea offers this print - dimension: 46.5" x 30.75" (hey, to get this look - size matters! ;)
Better yet, if you've got some mad camera skills (and a large megapixel count) have your own images blown up. Here's just one of many companies that do just that!

Love HUGE photographs that make a bold statement! The first one of the horses is spectacular, and now you have inspired me with a larger-than-life size of my little girl!

I've been wanting a big wall like the one n the first photo, of top to bottom framed photos but will have to wait until my kids are older so they don't grab them off the walls. ;-)

This is a great idea! We have 9 foot ceilings and while I have plenty of smaller art grouped together, I think my walls are screaming for a large photo like one of these. Now, I just have to pick the right one...that will be a huge job for sure with my design ADD kicking in :)
