Adding something he likes to your decor doesn’t have to be painful. And, enter to win!
We all have them in our lives: the car nut. He stops in parking lots to drool over a vintage model he remembers from childhood, he dreams of the exotic car he’ll buy when he wins the lottery and he obsesses over his baby’s next detailing. And, he’d love to look at cars inside the house, too.
But those pin-up girl calendars and the grease-stained posters are not making it to the walls of your family room. They belong in the basement, or even better, in the trash.
There’s a better way.
When Carrera Toys, the legendary European slot car brand, needed to decorate their North American headquarters not long ago, they turned to FramedArt.com. The company has a growing collection of automotive artwork archived in its warehouse in New Jersey, which includes limited production lithographic prints, canvas prints and scalable digital images, all of which can be printed in a range of sizes. Carrera selected two of Ray Foster’s marvelous muscle-era prints – “Going West” and “Ventura Freeway” – as well as a trio of European-styled prints by artist KC Haxton.

Add a Pop of Car Color to Any Room—Even the Garage
Henry Ford famously said “any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it is black.” Clearly, Mrs. Ford hadn’t had her say yet.
And while the most popular car color choices may still be black, white and silver, our indoors are filled with color, which rivals form and function as a design principle. Framed Art gets this; the company’s catalogue has car prints in wide range of color choices, far more than the typical car comes in.
Many people think of cars as contrary to their interior decor, choosing images of beaches, mountains and flower-covered fields to inspire a relaxing home. But there are plenty of car-themed prints with in a variety of styles and themes to both help you relax and to inspire your leisure time.
And for the gear head in our families, you can dress up the garage a bit too; adding a bit of soft light and cleaning up the spaces around the grease pit can help, and hanging prints to inspire his work can help too. Retro race cars, black and white photos, old-school advertisements and vintage racing prints can make his space feel less grungy and more inviting.
