We are really in full on renovation mode now with the summer coming up quick. There have been many changes and updates. In about a week we will be able to sand and finish the floors…which means things can be delivered!!! Scheduling delivery dates can be very tricky, especially with many retail stores do not hold furniture and things go on backorder.
Last week I had a chance check on how the white paint looks on the knotty pine. Once I saw it I realized how ready we are to start thinking about all the art work and wall decor placement. I have gathered artwork, prints, and wall decor from many places, my own house, consignment shops, Brimfield Antique Show, One Kings Lane, antique books, the Junior League show house boutique. I really love art and like to try to support local artists. This summer I plan to try to find new artists in Falmouth and purchase their work. If I can’t find local, I will look anywhere I can. Here is a sample of the pieces I have found so far.
Some suggestions for finding art for your home…
Mixing tradition art and abstract art is one of my favorite looks. I am still on the hunt for colorful abstract pieces for the white walls. I often find myself browsing the site Charish. A great on-line source for buying and selling antique and vintage decor.
I can always find something fun and interesting on Etsy. I found these great prints (here) that I going to frame myself for one of the bedrooms.
More finds on Etsy at amazing prices.
I love these polaroid framed art (above) from Shehitpause on Etsy (here). They have that laid back beachy vibe that contrasts well with some of the more traditional pieces I have.
Another fun place to scour for art prints is Artfully Walls. You can purchase a print alone or chose a frame and they will frame it for you.
My last source I have to mention is Serena and Lily’s art on the website and in stores. You will love their collection of different artists, mediums and sizes. Definitely worth the time to look over. One of my favorites for a beach house….
Art can really bring life to a home, but don’t forget photos of your family blown up can be a good tight budget idea. Why not frame some art from your children – or even your own. Good luck!
