03 Dec Holiday Reveals – My Living Room…and Some New Art
I thought it was probably time for another installment of…
…and for today, I’m showcasing my new’ish’ living room.
As you know, I’ve been wanting to scale down all the stuff I had going on in there.
I also decided to change the seating arrangement so that the room had one large area, rather than two smaller ones.
In addition, I wanted to add some more masculine elements and take away a little of the pink.
So, I started by painting the walls in Para Snowfall…aka…one of my all time favourite whites.
Then, I moved things around, added in some new chairs and most importantly, a couple of pieces of large scale art in place of the artwall I had previously.
Now as you know (from this post,) the white chairs were borrowed on approval and they’ve gone back…pretty sure they’ll be coming back in the new year though- if I have anything to say about it that is.
Overall, I’m really pleased with how it’s all turned out.
Mostly because of the art- I literally die a little every time I walk in the room because of my:
1. Jen Mann large pink Jesus, as my husband refers to him…I literally could not love him more- I think I actually fall harder each and every day.
2. Stephanie Vovas photograph over the fireplace…my husband had some old work buddies over for a little party of sorts at our place on Saturday and I swear we collectively talked about my lady friend for at least an hour- she’s captivating to say the least.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…if you’re going to spend money on stuff, spend it on original art…makes ALL the difference to a space.
I’m pretty sure my room could have nothing it in but those two pieces and that would be enough.
And since we’re on that topic, I’ve added some more abstracts to my shop…
…which can be purchased on their own or framed…
…and have decided to keep the festive cheer going with a 20% coupon code for the whole month of December…I’ll be trying to add new work every day until Christmas so if you’re looking for that special something to give someone for the holidays, consider the gift of art:))))
…to redeem the 20%.
And with that, I’m off to get the kids out the door to school- I’ve got my kindergarten dude’s parent observation this morning and so looking forward to it- seeing your kid at school, interacting with their friends and teacher is always so much fun…it’s almost like you get to see a glimpse of the person they are becoming in real life as it were- tres neat.
