Good Questions: Earthquake-safe art for over the bed?

Jan 24, 2007


I've been looking for something like the attached picture.

I have this huge blank wall over the bed that I need to fill up with something pretty, colorful, modern, and *lightweight*. My husband is paranoid about earthquakes and art above the bed. =)

Any ideas? I'm hoping to find something for less than $200 but still with decent size.

Dear Kim,

Choose something light -- either made from paper or textiles, and use minimal hardware when hanging. You might be able to reproduce the look of the red twister in your picture by taking a high res photo and having it printed on canvas through a service like Photo 2 canvas. You would then hang it rather than use a heavy frame.

A while back we also suggested silk wall hangings that come with light weight wood hangers for just this need.

Any other sugegstions out there?
