TIGER FLOWER STUDIO :: COLOR + WHIMSY FOR YOUR WALLS

I have a bad habit of getting a bit ‘matchy’ in my decorating (and wardrobing for that matter) and there’s no place that this bothers me more than when it comes to art. Sometimes I see pieces I love only to think ‘well, that’s not going to work in my house’. Of all things, art […]

    Personally, I believe it takes “all of the above” to enjoy art…first..I gravitate to the scene and then I find..it has all the colors I adore…and then it has to “fit in” with the surroundings. Done deal!! franki

    I love the idea that art should be purchased based on an emotional connection to the piece, not the fact that it matches your couch. Good point!! As we finish up our renovation and start to think about decorating, I will definitely keep that in mind! This was a helpful (and adorable) post – thanks!

NEW WORKS FROM JENNIFER AMENT

Jennifer Ament MaisonLuxe_75

I’ve posted many times on my friend Jennifer Ament and her artwork, but I’m super excited to share her latest work with you today because I think it showcases her talent as an artist of many mediums – from encaustics to linocuts – which I find incredible. Jen recently put together a show at Maison […]

    Beautiful works, I love the orange branch and the orange “wash” above it, what is the medium {wax?}, it looks so textural. The marble like pieces are wonderful, and her comment board is hilarious, this girl has obviously been to a few art shows before!!

    I love her use of texture and shape – very engaging. Used correctly, a lot of these pieces could work in even the most traditional of rooms. Just beautiful – thanks for sharing!

    Nice pieces, one of them inspired me for my husband’s birthday present! He’s crazy about guitars so i’ll draw for him few models and frame them! Thank u so much!

    Love this post. This was such an amazing show! Alyse and I both purchased a framed collage each from her newest collection for our homes that evening. The piece I bought {second photo, smallest galaxy circle with glitter strips} fits perfectly on my gallery wall in the living room. Seattle is so rich with talent and her work certainly stands out as some of Emerald City’s finest. -Amy

        Agh…I pondered for what seemed like an eternity. Everything was that good! This will certainly not be my last purchase from the hands of JA. The upside is that gem of piece is staying in Seattle. In fact, it travelled right back to West Seattle to be exact. Have a lovely holiday. -Amy

ONE DANDY WARHOL, PLEASE

warhol poster all is pretty

It may come as a surprise to you, but making my Christmas wishlist always proves to be a bit of a challenge for me. Not my fake wishlist – that’s easy. The real wishlist that I have to actually give to my family… that’s a whole other thing. So, I started going back through my pinterest to […]

    I think they might stopped selling them online because everyone here in Sweden have them, everyone who has an interest in interior decorating at least. They kind of got a little boring. Of course I do as well but I don’t have them up at the moment because of it, maybe some day though. As you can tell they we’re the poster of a Warhol exhibit in 1968. They were really cool a few years back.

    Go to Sweden’s “eBay” site Tradera.se and search for “Warhol” (nothing else). A couple of the quotation posters popped up. Sometimes sellers do sell to international buyers. I checked Moderna Museet and they do have a webshop but none of the Warhol quotes anymore.

    I’m suuuuuper into these too. I’ve always been partial to the “I like boring things” one as it absolutely cracks me up. Alas, I’ve never been able to find them for sale anywhere either. Like someone mentioned above, I know Modern a Museet used to sell them, but I’ve checked back a couple of times and they never seem to pop back up. But hey, if I ever find one in my (web) travels, I’ll certainly let you know.

TOMMY MITCHELL :: GILDED FLORA

deeda blair home

A few weeks back I featured a little vignette from the home of the elegant Deeda Blair, and one things I noted, that I didn’t point out in that post, were these beautiful ceramic florals that she had throughout her home… Perched on windowsills, tables, and decorative moments throughout the space, I loved the soft […]

CACTUS CRUSH

It’s funny how objects become popular motifs for fashion and design out of nowhere. Pineapples and flamingos being the most recent in this trend – so many of them everywhere this summer! But me? I’m crushing on cactus…. I’m honestly not sure what it is about the shape of these natural beauties that has me […]
