Upstairs art, an announcement and a giveaway

UPDATE: The giveaway is now closed.

Our upstairs walls are no longer bare! The art that we mulled over and selected is finally hanging! Let’s take a tour.

Staircase landing:


My desire for a huge print in this stairwell has been satisfied. I love when the light streams through the window and illuminates the detail in the sea stack.


Long wall between the plant shelf and the TV:

This series offers a great punch of color and really leads your eye into the space.

Behind the couch:

Don’t let this picture fool you. That is a massive image, clocking in at 28″ x 76″. Our 8′ couch can dwarf anything.

  1. There are so many amazing ones to pick from, but I think “Sea Field” is my favorite just because it looks like it was taken on the surface of another planet. Very very cool

  2. I love the sea stack print. Amazing photography.

  3. Love the one of the bridge and also the birds on a line print!

  4. Wow, the art really makes these rooms come together! I love stones polaroid 🙂

  5. I love that you guys are doing this. My favorite is ‘Urban Facade’!

  6. Gradiated Forest Panoramic
    Although it was hard to choose

  7. I really like all of them – but would say ‘Bridge’ if you made me choose one!

  8. My favorite is the one called “flight”.

  9. Birds on a wire and Row House

  10. Birds on a line…but they are all amazing!

  11. Light post panoramic. 🙂

  12. Love the gradiated forest panoramic…. Or the Stump. Very tough choice!

  13. I love the coastal trees!

  14. Love all the artwork up in the firehouse! Any word on HH?

    anyway – to be entered, my favorite is the “Forest Floor Panoramic”. Love that one!

  15. I heart so many of them! My favorite is Littered Coast Panoramic though. Very nice!

  16. easily the trees in the hallway. Love what they add to the depth.

  17. Hard to pick – but I love Gradiated Forest Panoramic!

  18. I love the fog pier picture – so eerily beautiful

  19. Um GENIUS idea taking these to etsy!!!! Fog Pier is amazing. But I think my favorite may be the forest floor panoramic. Gorgeous.

  20. Eek – so hard to choose a favorite! I think Fog Pier…no wait, Snow Tree…or…

    Love the ones you chose for the Firehouse — they compliment all your work perfectly!

  21. I love them all, but The Forest Floor panoramic is incredible!

  22. Gotta love ‘Birds on a Line’. Turning pigeons into art takes quite an eye.

  23. Loving Sea Stack!

  24. I really love the Littered Coast Panorama. Amazing!

  25. LOVE pretty much every photo in the FirePolePrints store… but I really love Sea Stack and Stump the most.

    Mostly because I’m a fan of similar things and the windy-ness of the stump is so eye-catching, especially in B&W.

  26. That’s a tough one! I think Birds on a Line is my favorite but Mt Rainier 2 is a close second.

  27. So great to see you expand and share these with the world I love Sea Field, it would be a great thing to add to our new house when we get it.

  28. Birds on a line! Although stump is great too!

  29. Best wishes on your new endeavor. I’m a fan of “Fog Pier.”

  30. D and I have always liked the Birds and of course I think they are all great.

  31. Some beautiful stuff! A lot of the landscapes remind me of my home state of Washington, but my eye is really drawn to Machinery.

  32. À la Brick in Anchorman, I love Stump. I also love Sea Stacks. But all of them are pretty rad. Congrats on the etsy shop, and congrats on your art-filled home!

  33. Great idea on the Etsy shop. Fave is sea stack!

  34. This Etsy shop is a great idea! I really couldn’t make up my mind: I like the picture of the factory just as much as the polaroids.

  35. Congratulations on your new venture! How exciting for you. Stump Polaroid is my favorite, but all of them are great.

  36. I am so excited for your shop!! I love the Fallen Tree Panoramic. Totally right up my alley!

  37. Ack, it’s so hard to decide! I love the green ones best, I guess–the canopy and the forest floor especially.

  38. Gotta say the birds on a line, although there are some very close runner-ups among your forest prints.

  39. Oh darn, awesome, good for you – an Etsy!! So hard to choose, although I love the polaroids very very much indeed… And the industrial ones too… So Machinery or Coastal Trees Polaroid for me!

  40. I love that you opened an Etsy shop, congrats!

    Hard to pick but I’m going to pick Gradiated Forest Panoramic!

  41. I love so many of them! My mother was born in Oregon and so the northwest has been a frequent vacation spot for us – I’ve seen all of these moments in my life. That said, I love the bird on a wire print – but the stump is a close second favorite.

  42. I love the Green Field. It is so exciting to think about having a piece of your imagination in my house! I am going to put a plug in for equally simple photos that combine unique combinations together. I’ve been searching for something that combines small bits of teal/turquoise, coral, and lemongrass together with a neutral so my husband will allow me to do a ‘boring’ house with pops of those.

  43. Gradiated Forest is my favorite.

  44. I LOVE “Mt Rainier 2” and “Mountain Flowers”…. I’m a sucker for mountains. 😀

  45. I love the “Stump” print.

  46. I’m a fan of “Machinery” and “Exit.” Love the whole collection and seeing how the firehouse continues to come together!

  47. Love these prints, so original, my favorite is Mountain Flowers.

  48. Hmmmmm…. I’m not sure. So many good choices! I think, right this second, the row houses with the mansard roofs is calling my name.

  49. I have a thing for the Pacific Northwest (I live in Kentucky, but my husband is from PNW and I get major location envy each time we visit his family), so it’s no surprise that I was immediately drawn to “Sea Stack Polaroid” and “Mt Rainier Polaroid”. Beautiful shots!

  50. I have to choose the stump. Our wedding anniversary is Wednesday, so I’m crossing all my fingers!!

  51. so tough to pick a favorite! i love the aprons, and the gradiated forest, and the birds on a line and the STUMP, but if i had to pick one that would hang in my living room and i would look at everyday, i think i would have to go with the fog pier. or the littered coast. wait, definitely the bridge. final answer. but dont hold me to it.

  52. Birds on a Line , I love all the things but this would go the best in my house. I wish I had a blog so I could make my relatives comment to give me ideas for Christmas/birthdays. that’s a great idea!

  53. I like both Snow Tree Polaroid and Fall Leaves!

  54. My favorite is Sunset, but it was really hard to choose!

  55. I just moved into a brand new apartment in a brand new city. The Gradiated Forest Panoramic print would be an amazing addition to my place.

    Also, first I’m commenter, and just wanted to say I love the blog and firehouse! So inspiring. I only hope I can work on a space just as cool someday.

  56. I’m torn between mountain flowers & birds on a line

  57. Light post panoramic!

  58. For me it is a tie between the Fallen Tree Panoramic & the Littered Coast Panoramic. Both are so beautiful.Plus my boyfriend is a forester so I know he would appreciate them as well!

  59. I love the Mountain Flowers print as well as the Machinery – so different I can’t choose!

  60. Gradiated Forest Panoramic is so beautiful. I really love the series of four red prints on your living room wall, and I appreciate that you’re balancing the enormous expanses of wall that you have with sizable art.

  61. Definitely would pick either Birds on a Line, or Bridge. Etsy shop is a great idea, although apparently they’ve had a huge policy shift recently, and long established shops have seen their number of sales take a nose dive. I hope it’s profitable for you though! (There’s also store envy)

  62. I am an indecisive person so I love the stone and forest images! Very cool.

  63. Stump polaroid. I’m a sucker for an interesting piece of wood and I love the effect you gave this one. Plus I remember polaroids very well!!

  64. I love the forest floor panoramic. It would be perfect in our house with the surrounding acreage.

  65. The sea stack polaroid is totally my favorite!

  66. Quite a few favorites, but I settled on the Gradiated Forest Panoramic

  67. I love fog pier! So calming and would be perfect in my bedroom.

  68. […] before finally becoming a serene place to relax, complete with a new paint job, new lighting, some new furnishings, a bar cart and some art! […]
