And now you must excuse me while I put some holes in these walls and settle in. Feel free to recommend your favorite artists or pieces to check out. We’d love to take a look!
I appreciate such pictures because they are non-standard and if it can be said so, more «alive». They are very unusual and that is why they make your room unique and serve as a perfect means of modern décor. They make your accommodation more comfortable and romantic.
2, 6, 3, 1, 4, 5. That is my order. Absolutely love number 2.
Some are pretty and/or interesting, but I do not like #4.It looks like Satan is in mid-air, looking down, reading something. Bad energy. Your artwork is fabulous,Btw. Praying for you guys. I check every day, hoping to see that your house has sold. Am looking forward to what you will do with your new place. God bless you. Sherri
II’ve been following your house-saga. Ouch. We are selling a home in a very rural area of OR-so it will take a while,
we know, but the waiting is the worst. Hope you sell asap. Fingers crossed for all of us!
BTW, my son is an artist-check out his stuff at :
Oh my goodness! These pieces are beautiful! #1 is my favorite! Gorgeous!
Loving 1 and 5!
I love two and three! :)
I absolutely LOVE the Todd Hunter painting. Wish I could afford something like that for my house!
One artist that I really like is Leonid Afremov. His brush strokes and use of paint color is so unique I just came to love him! Here’s two of my favorites
Another artist that I really like is Carne Griffith. Here are two of my favs by him!
They may not be what you are looking for, but they are still fun to look at! Can’t wait to see what you do with the place!
My husband and I recently bought a print by Leonid Afremov and absolutely love it. My husband’s been a fan of his and deviantart’s for years!
That was one of the first ones I saw of his, I love it!
Love your taste. I actually have a print from Clare Elsaesser and I have several favorited from Kai Samuels-Davis (hoping to get one for my birthday).

We have a couple from Clare, too! Can’t get enough. Thanks so much for the recommendations. Off to add some Elvia to my wish list! (The ComArt shop is currently closed it looks like. Bummer.)
That’s so exciting! I have to tell you two that I’ve been reading your blog for a long time and haven’t been a good blog reader – no comments. Sorry about that. I love the combination of house/food stuff – great, great! My kids love the Italian cream sodas, btw! I’m excited about your new house – we just moved recently too. And getting art up on the walls is totally the way to make it feel like home. Thanks for putting your journey out there on the interwebs for all to follow…..I’m always excited to see what’s next.

The link for number 1 isn’t working :(
I love #4 so much! It could go with any decor and it’s just interesting since the main focal point doesn’t take up the whole canvas.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
