All of my Christmas decorations have been packed away, and suddenly the house felt empty, especially the open shelving I added above the bar area in our kitchen. Clearly, they were pretty “done up” for the holiday:
I’ve been looking for a kitchen-themed print or picture for this area, but hadn’t had any luck finding one I wanted. As I freshened things up for spring, we had the opportunity to work with Photos.com by Getty Images and I realized I could create exactly the print I wanted with them.
Because everyone needs a butcher’s diagram of a pig in their kitchen, right? Exactly.

A few vintage silver platters and a mini boxwood wreath create an interesting grouping on the bottom shelf, and the pig is a whimsical touch.
Photos.com has THOUSANDS of photos from Getty Images archives; you can search using exact terms or browse their categories based on your decor or interests, the photographer, black/white or a particular color, which room the photo is for, and so on. Even though they have a mind-boggling number of photos, the search function makes it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for. If you’re a professional (or DIY) decorator or designer, this is a site you must know about!
When you’ve selected your photo(s), you choose the size (there are four to choose from) and then choose your framing material: canvas, framed paper, aluminum, acrylic, or birchwood. Mine is a 18″ x 12″ canvas; it came carefully packaged and ready to hang:

Thanks for stopping by!
The perfect touch of whimsy!
Love it, Christy! I just got a new cow print and it’s so fun! I like the eclectic and whimsical items and I believe they make great conversation subjects too.
Thanks for sharing the website!
I love it Chtisty! Wish I had the room! Where did you get the boxwood wreath and small topiary?
Thanks so much, Heidi! The boxwood wreath is from Target (I direct-linked to it in the post) and the small topiary is from HomeGoods, although I’ve also seen them at Stein-Mart. They sell them in packs of three.
Hope you’re staying warm!

Adorable! I like to follow this style to renew my house. Thanks for the gorgeous suggestion.
