Sometimes I’m into art as decor. And sometimes I’m really into art as decor. I’m definitely going through the extreme phase right now. I want art on every wall from floor to ceiling. I’ve been able to talk myself out of such an aesthetic in my own house (for now), but I’m only able to do that because I know that I can share all of my obsessions with you. My tastes lean mostly toward the abstract and the linear. But I could be convinced to to try something different if it were the right something different. For now, let me just show you some things I know I love.
What are some of your favorite places to buy prints and paintings? Who are your favorite artists? Let me know!
I recently visited my sister and I noticed some key decor style differences. My sister likes little groupings of things. Multiple picture frames on the bookcases, clusters of candles, stacks of records, gallery walls… I’m nearly the exact opposite. I like minimal amounts of items, but I like them so big that they’re slapping you in the face as soon as you step inside. One painting that covers most of a wall. Sculpturally interesting furniture that speaks for itself eliminating the need for lots of accents. Plenty of texture: woods, faux fur, leather, silk, velvet… One thing I’m consumed with right now is floral centerpieces. But artful floral centerpieces. Floral arrangements that smack you in the face as soon as you walk into a room. Take a look…
My favorite is the first arrangement, but I love them all! What about you? Which is your favorite? Have you considered flowers as an impactful decor option?
Once a strict neutrals-only girl, I’ve found myself trying more color. Slowly at first, dipping my toe in with a mustard throw or a painting with splashes of cobalt, then diving in head first with emerald ottomans and jewel-toned rugs.
I can’t say that I’m a fan of all colors now, or even most. But there are a few that I’m obsessed with at the moment, and blue is one. Zara Home’s blue game is strong right now. I’m trying not to hand over all of my cash.
