Lots of PINKS and a touch of gold this cold winter night!
I found this tumbler blog yesterday called a place for art. She has this fabulous collection of geometric patterns/art/fonts/etc. I kind of love the idea of a wall full of framed geometric designs and these are just a few pieces that inspired me.
One thing to note…tumbler blogs are awesome, but it is nearly impossible to track down the original source for photos/art. If anyone can identify the artists please let me know.
My new painting hung in our dinning room just in time for Christmas Dinner. Merry Christmas!
Vacationing in India for a month was an adventure to say the least. We visited many family homes in different states with different cultures and the homes were all decorated with traditional Indian items like paintings and colorful fabrics. This home is located in Goa, India and is available for rent. Casa Tota is a 150 year old Portuguese house, carefully and lovingly restored. I decided to share this home, because it has all the elements of homes I visited there. The canopy beds are quite common and the urns for fresh flowers is just gorgeous! Interiors in India is known for it’s rich use of color and beautiful wood carved furniture passed down from generations. I just love how they used old Bollywood movie posters as art – I couldn’t find it in India this time around, but I’m sure I can find similar posters on line. Have a great Holiday weekend- enjoy it with your loved ones. -ijin
Hello all. This post is a week delayed-life kinda got in the way ; -) Anywhoo, these are pictures of the hotel I stayed in San Juan, Puerto Rico on vacation. I really liked the modern/sexy vibe through out the entire hotel area. The bedroom was very modern with an over-sized picture backdrop and the ocean front room didn’t hurt either. ☺ My favorite piece was the bubble chandelier – I have been thinking of doing a DIY of this. I will share when/if I ever make it.
This piece is from a museum in Old San Juan. I’m definitely inspired to get a bunch of ply wood, blow up a great scenic picture and maybe mod podge it? What do you guys think? Will it work? On another note, I will be leaving for India this weekend- see you in a month with hopefully some inspiring interior images! ♥ -ijin
Working on a new piece. Have a relaxing weekend. -shari
After I saw the Etsy feature on artist Tali Yalonetzki I was blown away. I had to visit her shop. One of my favorite things about Etsy is their features on talented artists/designers/creators. This is one that I just bookmarked. LOVE LOVE LOVE her inspiring work. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to watch her paint in person? Is that weird? I wonder how her hands create such lovely/real looking characters?
Finished painting minus the frame. I am thinking a thin gold frame. What color frame would you use?
Artist Curtis Kulig has my dream artist’s studio in NYC. Gosh I would really love a place like this… a wide open space with unfinished wood floors, brick walls, & lots of windows. I also really love that yellow shimmery piece of artwork in the background! See more @ The Selby
His bedroom is pretty awesome as well:
I’ve been doing some serious browsing… I’m searching for a few pieces of abstract art for my home. My living room & dining room both need something xtra large. I’m thinking a bold painting on canvas would be perfect for each room.
So, I went to the internet to get some answers. I didn’t really know the “rules” of decorating with abstract art. Do pieces near each other have to match/have similar colors? do designs have to “go together?” etc, etc.
I found this lovely Norwegian home on interiormagasinet.hegnar.no and it was just what I needed to see. They’ve used large abstract canvases in pretty much every room. All of the colors/designs just WORK! Almost like an art gallery.
After seeing this I am inspired and ready to start looking. Do you have abstract paintings in your home?
This morning I was inspired by the gorgeous woman in the photo below. Her bright orange & mint outfit makes her the perfect colorful accessory to the room. I was immediately on the hunt for a painting with orange and minty colors. I found this fabulous one by Claire Desjardins & picked out 3 pretty things to go with it.
inspired by her cute casual look:
When it comes to one of a kind pieces for your home there is really no better place than 1st Dibs. They have beautiful antiques, fine art, & furniture (you can browse by style & ERA!) It is definitely one of my favorite websites for decor inspiration.
So, I thought I’d pick out 10 pieces that I’d love in my home if money were no object. I can dream, right?
After spending a few hours browsing her paintings, I stumbled upon Isabelle Tuchband’s house. The Selby had soooo many pretty photographs & I had to repost sooo many of my favorites. Her house reminds me of her artwork. Isabelle has such colorful style and her home looks like such a happy place. I’d LOVE to have a studio like hers. Isn’t it AMAZING?
Abstract art is everywhere these days. I’ve been bookmarking favorites on Etsy, and I’m amazed at all of the interesting, inexpensive pieces. Thumbs up to these fabulous artists!
What do you think? Have you purchased abstract art from Etsy?
P.S. I’m all about big gold/brassy frames- any of these pieces would look amazing in some gold plating.
I find stamp carving pretty fascinating. Geninne D. Zlatkis makes some of the prettiest ones that I’ve seen. She made this great tutorial which helped me track her down:
In addition, her blog is such a beautiful read! blogdelanine.blogspot.com
Happy Friday! I thought I’d share some of nature’s finest decor this morning.
Artist/Photographer Camille Seaman has made a career out of photographing icebergs. via Outide Magazine…
In 1999, Camille Seaman gave up her seat on a one-hour flight from Oakland to L.A. and scored a round trip ticket anywhere in the world. She chose Alaska. Once there, she decided to walk from a coastal town named Kotzebue across the ice towards Russia. After feeling cold, lost, and somewhat panicked, she had a moment where she stopped, looked around, and felt a connection to the earth. That one moment ignited a passion for Arctic landscapes that she turned into a career photographing icebergs.

Have you ever seen an iceberg in person? The closest that I’ve been is on a trip to Iceland with my husband before we were married. This photo was taken in Jökulsárlón…It was absolutely breathtaking. Unfortunately at the time we had a very inexpensive camera!
Have you heard of the Yarnbombing movement? Knitters around the world have been covering city streets and objects with their colorful creations. Textile artist, Magda Sayeg founded Knitta Please, the knit graffiti group that has created some of the most fantastic pieces of art in the yarnbombing movement.
It is really incredible how much work goes into their craft. They recently covered over 300 feet of AC ductwork in Etsy.com‘s Brooklyn office. Check it out here.
One of my favorite things to do when looking at people’s homes online is to check out their wall art. The Selby always has homes with really quirky decor.
This home stuck out to me. It is located in San Francisco & owner Ben Ospital is the owner of Modern Appealing Clothing. I picked out a few photos that display some of his unique wall art. There was sooo much so it was hard to narrow down, but these walls really caught my attention.
