CoverUP!

Saturday, April 3, 2010
As some of you may know, I want to finally start decorating my bedroom (CLICK HERE). I've been lazy about it for several reasons but I'm starting piece by piece. Click HERE to see the other rooms I've decorated.

Right now my wall is plain and white, boring. I collect magazine covers and I came across this great idea that would make good use out of the magazines I've saved.


I got this issue of Italian Vogue's "All Black" Issue and loved the spread! I kept it for a while in a basket in my living room but I finally got the idea of framing the cover to put in my bedroom. I'm also a HUGE Natalie Portman fan (loved her since the movie 'The Professional'). I thought her spread in Interview Magazine was great so I saved that as well. In addition to these two covers, I plan on purchasing some vintage ones and even framing some really amazing shoots I've seen in different magazines as well. My goal is to arrange them on that boring white wall so they end up looking something like this ....


Frames are usually inexpensive, I picked up some from Target.com. The rest is simple! Frame the cover and hang on your wall.

  1. wow the room you decorated with the blue curtains is so simple and lovely. don't you get worried about spilling something on the white stuff? i love the idea for the vogue covers, I have an idea like this for my vintage copies of national geographic.

    Love the idea you described, maybe you can even get some vintage frames for these covers or even put them all in different frames to get that eclectic look...

  22. That's just perfect! I'd do the same thing if I wasn't so lazy (just thinking of drilling all the holes makes me wanna lie down and take a nap)!

    And Natalie is absolutely AWESOME. She's my favourite person ever, I kept an old issue of Polish InStyle with an interview with her and I read it over and over - every time I do this I feel inspired to be a better person :) The only other girl that I adore so much is Emma Watson - similar type of a level-headed, sweet, caring person.

  31. I think the cover art is a really cute idea! for my apt, i designed my bed room first, and the LR came together because i had been buying pieces idividually over time, but its still not complete. if you can, i suggest you paint too, nothing like some color to give your BR that personal touch.
