decorating with blueprints

Blueprint drawings are a design industry standard, so it’s only appropriate that these time-honoured design drawings become designs in and of themselves. With their simple, architectural feel, blueprints are most fitting for home decor. Applied to wall art and light fixtures, the effect is everything from curated to classic and charming!


Vintage blueprints are an unexpected touch to this industrial-style pendant light. Try it in a library or den for a curated, old-world aesthetic. [Blueprint Light Fixture, steel/vintage blueprints/porcelain Leviton, Anthropologie, $2,498.00 USD].


Put a cheeky spin on classic blueprint art with drawings for ‘building’ the perfect cocktail [Cocktail Blueprint Print, off-set print on paper with matte black frame and single ivory matting, Crate and Barrel, $523.06 CDN].

Add coastal charm to both cottage and home with a pair of classic lighthouse blueprints [Cape Henry Lighthouse Blueprints, Blueprint-style drawings created by the US Lighthouse Board in 1878, Restoration Hardware, $995.00 USD].
