Addison and Lake

I know I've told y'all that I love gallery walls. I've been collecting prints and pictures that I want to frame for a gallery wall when I finally get my post-grad apartment. My dream is to move to Charleston in a couple of years, so I've been searching for a print to honor my home state and found the most beautiful one at Addison and Lake, a boutique art and design studio located in beautiful Chicago.

Karen, the owner, specializes in unique, custom artwork and paper products including personalized stationery, wedding invitation suites, custom illustrations, custom maps, calligraphy, and unique hand typography. Karen was sweet enough to work with me to create a Virginia print for my future gallery wall. I chose the font color, the state color, and the heart color. Of course I chose a pink state, with navy type and a navy heart. I love it!
I went home and searched for a frame at Target, Hobby Lobby, and a few other home stores, but couldn't find one I loved. I'm thinking a simple one like this is perfect: 

Karen will work with you to make a print of your home state, and y'all, the best part? They are only $12! Isn't that crazy?! These prints would make a wonderful graduation gift, either of the city and state where the graduate went to college or one of his/her home state. Here are some of Karen's other state prints: 

Addison and Lake also offers several other prints:
 One of my favorites is this champagne print: 

Wouldn't it look great over a bar cart? 
Which Addison and Lake print is your favorite? Have a great day!
