New Art Source: Poster Club

I was away working this weekend so this morning’s post is going to be short and sweet. Came across a great new source for affordable art prints in the UK called The Poster Club and rounded up some favorites into a virtual gallery wall to share with you guys. I love the mix of line drawings, graphic prints, abstract paintings and photography.

Great Local Art Source & A Fun Announcement!

I am always looking for local sources for great original art, and lately I’ve been sourcing items from Art Collector Maine, which showcases tons of  Maine artists on one great website (and has a couple galleries it pulls from).  From abstract work to coastal landscapes, I’ve been very charmed with their options- from $200 to thousands.  So a little something for everyone! Here are a few that caught my eye, but be sure to check out all the options (I also love that you can search by price!)

Tiny Treaures

I think I’ve stated this before here, but tiny things make me lose my mind. Like, in my world, anything made miniature makes it 1,000 times as awesome. That holds especially true with art.  Tiny paintings in big frames are my jam, y’all. I’ll will buy them up like candy. Like in this room we styled- those two small abstract pieces were purchased on Etsy and custom framed– and they MAKE this image (shot my pal Michael J. Lee).  I also love how tiny art can allow you to buy original works on a small budget.  Nothing compares to original artwork- nothing.  So if you can’t afford big pieces, tiny will do just fine. Add a big mat and interesting frame and you’ve got yourself a stunner.

I also love incorporating tiny works of art into my gallery walls. It gives them so much more depth and interest.  So here is a round up of tiny  original artwork sure to blow your mind, without blowing your budget!

The pieces above were from Lauren Adams.

Artist (and Designer) Crush: William McLure

There are some people who are just SO talented you can’t believe one individual can house so much good taste and skill. William McLure is one of those people. I just cannot get enough not only of his incredible abstract paintings but also his interiors! Especially his own apartments. And he appears to be very young (with a little bit of a Zac Efron thing going on to boot…) so I can’t wait to see what else he does in his career.  And I’m absolutely looking to use his work in some of my projects- it’s fantastic.

This was his last place and it is INCREDIBLE- the layering, the mix of simplicity and detail and layering is really masterful william_mclure_apartment_02_07_2016_6489
