I don’t own very much art in my apartment, but I am slowly collecting things that really speak to me. In our last place, I had tons of prints. A fairly random assortment of finds mainly from Minted and those kinds of sites, but I realized at a certain point that they served as wall space fillers and weren’t things that I truly loved. Art should be a connection, something draws you in and feels special wherever you decide to place it. I shared this post a while back to begin documenting artists, shops, and pieces I love as I come across them, and I’m excited to chat about this topic again!
As I’ve been cleaning and de-clutter our home as of late, I’ve noticed that all of the prints I do have are mainly black and white and either floral, greenery or a pretty pattern. I just love the way these pops of contrast add a subtle statement to a vignette. This one (featured above bu Juniper Print Shop) is a current favorite! I also really love Jennifer Ament pieces, I have this one and love it. Since I am asked often about art pieces and how to carefully consider things to hang up on your walls, I thought I would share some of my favorite finds and a few others from around the web as well.
When I did an Interior Talk post recently, I got so many people asking about what color frames I suggest. I have found that I like white so much more than a dark frame. I think maybe because it’s more subtle on the wall and the focus is on the art! So wanted to mention that while we’re chatting prints.
Also! Beyond prints online (which are the easiest way to go about finding pieces), I also love to get creative. I will cut a page out of a coffee table book, frame a beautiful piece of fabric or even a luxe wrapping paper (Paper Source find, etc), or visit a flea market and buy a vintage print of some kind… there are so many cool things you can do! xx
