Weekend Inspiration: Art and offices
On my mind currently: 1) we need better art. I love hanging personal and unique or bold art on the walls, and I'm getting tired of what we currently have! Time for something new. Here's a couple living rooms I've seen lately that have done it right.
I need more bold color!! Ooh, there's even a Michelle Armas in there! (Recently discovered Scoutmob, and their fab selection of Michelle Armas prints right now... OMG. I must confess I have saved the Halycon Print to my phone and use it as my wallpaper. Hope that's legal... I think that the "That Bowtie I Like" Print, or the Trellus Print, would look fabulous in my office!! Or could I pull one of them off in the living room??
Speaking of color, these bright watercolors are pretty amazing. And for something fun and cute and graphic, I like the idea of these prints from an artist duo in Atlanta... [must master the art of the funky gallery wall mishmash.]
Okay, so point 2) Thinking about office organization... speaking of lots of work to do, we've been talking about making our office a better usable workspace. Remembering the term "stimulus control." Office needs to be for working, sewing, maybe watching TV on the computer. Need to feel like when we walk in here, it's time to get down to work!!
But would also love a beautiful office... this week's inspirations...
And here's an organized workspace if I ever saw one... dunno about usable, but sure would make you feel centered.
Overlapping area rugs?
3) This one's random. Also want to find a way to pull off overlapping rugs. We have a couple 5'x8' that aren't quite big enough for the living room or wherever, and could sort of use a runner to protect our carpet downstairs... has anyone done this successfully??
(Of course it looks great in this lovely space with hardwoods and iron bed... how about in my suburban townhouse? ;) )
Those are my fave pretties these days. I'm a visual person, ya know. Amazing how images can cheer me up!
Anyone have any ideas for how I can brighten spaces with art, make our office feel more usable, or cover up some wall-to-wall carpet--this weekend??!? ;)
