a little bit more about art today! like a lot of us, when it comes to decorating with art, i get a little stuck — at least at first. moving to my new place in laguna i’m having internal struggles about which art to hang and where, and if perhaps i need new art (which i think i do). i also like a lot of different kinds of art, so i get inspired when i see eclectic home galleries put together in what looks quite effortless. i envy that and strive to emulate the look. i’m still a work in progress and will probably stick to a more minimalist look, but here’s what’s inspiring me right now — from simple to wildly eccentric, i kinda love it all.

  1. Due to budget constraints most of our art is comprised of things I made and framed posters (while when I was young I was convinced I would be a succesful artcollector). Our newest poster is a picture of Miles Davis by Anton Corbijn. Our most cherished (and biggest) is a poster by Lidewey Edelkoort’s husband (who died last year) for a Malewich exhibition.

  2. Hi– I really like this question– it’s a big part of our home’s aesthetic. I’ve moved into 4 very different homes and from that I’ve learned that my furniture placement and getting right is so important. This defines what wall space is available for art. And then I start with my favorite pieces of art, sometimes one at a time. For me, this is a slower process but always leads me where I want to go. When none of my art seems to work, then I consider getting new art. All the best & as always, have fun!

    • Thanks so much, Kim! I really believe all decorating should be fun and ‘going with the flow’ really destresses the process. Glad you liked the post!
