Cuckoo for Camo

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Feb 19, 2014 | No Comments | Category: Art, Color, Design Inspiration, Walls

I’m recently obsessed with anything camouflage which may or may not be trending at the moment — but I’m not sure it matters when it comes to Andy Warhol’s camo prints.  If you like anything Andy Warhol, you’re going to love these prints.  Full of color and movement these pieces can certainly pack a punch.  The versatility is endless too — I can see these prints in a living room, a playroom, a kitchen, a kids room, a den..you get the point.  If you can’t afford the real deal, there are plenty of reproduction prints for sale at places like art.com - just make sure you frame it so it looks like an original ;)

Look what it does to a rather bland kitchen

I guess I’ve got a project ahead of me!  I’m thinking I’ll give this Warhol thing a whirl

Most people struggle to find that one piece of furniture or the right throw pillows that are going to help complete their space — without realizing that one single piece of art can do the trick.  House Beautiful recently posted an article showing four different spaces that are dramatically improved by artwork.  Take a look at these four spaces as well as four additional spaces I found that will show you how to transform your space.  Art is of course very personal, so I’ll leave that up to you, but I suggest spending the money on your walls.  It changes the space and often gets people talking if it’s placed in the right spot

Bright and Playful

I found another artist (Mimi Chen Ting) who brightened up my day so I had to share her playful pieces with you.  I can see these compositions and colors in all kinds of rooms and spaces – especially if it’s on the traditional side and you’re looking to make a modern statement.  Take a look at her work through Elisa Contemporary Art Gallery and let me know how you feel after a viewing.  It should be cheery!

I’m back on the art hunt – this time I’m looking for something colorful and bold for a nursery and as I’m browsing through, what feels like the entire world wide web, I came across this print gallery that caught my attention.  Cozamia has a variety of art filled with beauty and energy and it’s sure to brighten up your space.

Yellow Korner

I woke up this morning happy to see that the sun was shining and that the day was going to be a perfect 66 degrees.  Sundays are the perfect day to walk around the city and in and out of stores in hopes of finding something new and different (and affordable!).  Although YellowKorner gallery has been around since July of 2010, today was my first visit inside and I have to say I was very impressed with the entire collection.  Their concept is simple: To introduce the greatest photographers from all over the world and to increase the number of copies to make it accessible to all.  It’s simply brilliant!

Mykonos Beach by Richard Silver

Avel, St. Tropez by Jonathan Critchley

Vosges I by Friedrich Gier

La Fille au Parapluie Rouge by Matthieu Casimiri

Please visit the website to see the entire collection, there’s obviously much, much more — and if you’re in New York you must visit the gallery in Soho or the gallery at the Short Hills Mall in NJ.  There’s something for everyone so now you have no excuses as to why you aren’t collecting art.  Make your home a happy home by adding something spectacular to your walls!

I’ve been shopping around a lot lately for abstract photographs and paintings for clients and I’ve seen some of the worst and best stuff out there - but this artist blew me away!  The colors, the composition, the ease (i think) at which she paints – it’s amazing!  Thanks to High Gloss Magazine for featuring such a great artist.  Take a look at Michelle Armas’ work and let me know what you think. 

 These paintings would snazzy up any room and be a great pop of modern color in a more traditional space

Rumi

I was fortunate enough to attend the private preview party for the arts and antiques show at the armory last night and although most of the dealers had  stunning collections of furniture, jewelry, textiles and art, one gallery stood out amongst the rest for me.  Rumi Gallery that is located in both Canada and Stamford, CT had the most amazing modern art pieces on display so I had to share some of the work I saw.

Monet Door by Harold Barling Town

Blue and Red – Stewart Halley

Urban Ocean – Stewart Halley

Blind Dates – Nicholas Malcolm

Palm Sisters Dyptych – Nicholas Malcolm

Metal Guru – Nicholas Malcolm

Castaneb – Nicholas Malcolm

Poconos – Nicholas Malcolm

Please take a look for yourself at Rumi Gallery to see their collection of fine art and antiques.  You won’t be disappointed!  If you’re in NYC and have time to visit the show at the armory. it’s on all weekend.  I highly recommend swinging through if you need anything for yourself or a client.  It’s a great mixture of dealers so there’s something for everyone.  For more information visit the website here.
