Art in the Kitchen

January 6, 2014

Greetings all, and welcome to another week! Like so many around me, I’m fighting off a cold so today’s post is short and sweet. Over the weekend, I took advantage of an annual frame sale at Aaron Brothers to display some new prints in the kitchen above the mantel in a simple arrangement.

Our kitchen’s style is very traditional so I like to make small changes that introduce a more contemporary feel, last year it was two modern pendant fixtures, and this year an art display with black frames.

I’m drawn to watercolors and abstract art in blues and greens, also botanicals and nature prints. I picked up the two on the left at Minted last year, one a watercolor abstract and the other a simple yet colorful peacock feather. Find them here and here.

They are joined by two prints from books curated and published by my blog friends at The Handmade Home. Two of the prints made it up onto my kitchen mantel (the watercolor owl which my daughter picked out and the pale blue botanical, both on the right).

Ashley and Jamin gathered up several collections of original prints by talented artists into three separate texts and were kind enough to send them to me which inspired the new display.

art books

The books offer three styles of artwork from Eclectic to Contemporary to Traditional and come with perforated pages of dozens of prints from a variety of talented artists, you can give away different prints, change out ones in your home, or give the books as gifts too.

    I think I don’t know my favorite style just yet (which is why I still have a ton of blank walls) but I lean toward watercolor and abstract right now.

  42. Maria says:

    love it all. Definitely like to mix it up!

  43. Keryn says:

    Oooooh! I’ve always been a traditional girl, but recently a bit of abstract is creeping in. I’m letting it, in small doses!

  49. Elizabeth H says:

    used to collect art from an artist very popular in my area but the prints got too busy for me. I love simple watrercolor prints. How about your 49ers!! Yeah.

  50. I love prints! It’s such an accessible way to display art, and I love displaying in clusters, displays, galleries, so prints are perfect — I can also change things up frequently. We love music and geographical prints in our house…

  51. liza says:

    abstract, modern, edgy! getting my hubs to agree is another story! :-)

  52. Looks fabulous in your kitchen!! LOVE!!

  54. Beth says:

    Your new art work looks really great in those simple black frames. Right now, I’m drawn towards photography, prints and landscapes.

  55. These are so cool! I love to mix and match my art. I have a traditional Mexican bark painting next to a handmade card and a large comic-style print on my dining room wall. In the adjacent living room are 3 large abstracts I made myself, and in the kitchen is a fine art print! Love em all!

  56. Holly says:

    My favorite art is created by new local, unsigned artists, my kids! Oh, and I also like Mexican needle art.

  57. Ann says:

    I love all sorts of art – watercolors, abstract, photography, kids drawings, pop art. Probably the one kind I appreciate but don’t really want in my home are traditional portraits and landscapes. Just not my thing.

  58. Stephanie says:

    My husbands mother is an artist. She makes these large over the top abstract painting which are always so gorgeous. We’re a big fan of paintings, but I also love fun bright colored prints.

  59. Keely says:

    I LOVE watercolor/ abstract and photography! Would love this…just moved recently and our walls are bare!!! Need some inspiration! Thans for the opportunity!

  60. Sandy says:

    Photography and botanical prints are probably my favorite forms of art, i like the simplicity and the eye for beauty that can be found in them.

  61. Chelsea says:

    I’m into a variety of art, but I think photography and watercolors are my faves! They’re so difficult to do well, I really admire the talent of the artists.

  62. Stephanie says:

    My husbands mother is an artist and she makes these large, beautiful abstract paintings. We have a couple hanging in our house. I also love bright cheery prints.

  63. I love prints and photography. I have a gallery wall in my kitchen.

    I love a medley, but watercolors if I had to pick one.

    I love nature prints. There are so many interesting designs in the natural world, and beautiful colors. I mostly base my decorating on color schemes and patterns in nature.

  67. Sarah says:

    I enjoy a medley of styles but am drawn to blues and greens as well, usually of water scenes. I love the blue and green abstract on your mantel though, and so refreshing to see art in the kitchen!

  68. Haley says:

    I love the peacock feather print!

  69. Sue in DE says:

    Our home is very traditional, but we like to add some fun with art, so we have some folk art paintings, as well as botanicals are pen and ink architectural drawings. I’m always looking for new and interesting art to add to our walls!

    These are so cool! I’m not a huge nature person, but I love nature prints. And I’ve been wanting some silhouettes lately too

  76. Tiffany says:

    I love photography and watercolors. I guess that is more on the contemporary side.

  77. Carmen says:

    I love botanical prints. Those books are so cool! Would love to win them!

  79. katie says:

    I love prints, especially ones with retro sci-fi images like air ships. These books are an amazing idea!

  80. JeanzBeanz says:

    I don’t have a particular style – I am very eclectic! Love the peacock feather and I love black and white photography too… I have just received my first original oil painting (a landscape) which i also love! :)

  81. Jamie says:

    My favorites are abstracts and B/W Photography!

  82. Brenda says:

    My eye is definitely drawn to abstracts with light airy colors.

  83. Gina says:

    I love the botanical prints, too. I’m not so much into modern, but the idea of clean and simple art is what draws me into a print.

  84. Vicki says:

    I love water colors as well in soothing blue/green combos

  85. Kelly says:

    I like eclectic art, and was so lucky to receive several prints from both Etsy and Minted for Christmas – I just got them all framed and hung this week!

  88. Richelle B says:

    I love a mix of all of them. Those books look so neat!

  89. Ashley says:

    Love that peacock feather! I generally prefer paintings- bright acrylics (usually I commission the work of my kids) and watercolors. I’ll have to check those books out- what a great idea! Thanks for the giveaway (fingers crossed)!

  90. Love your new kitchen art collection! I always love how a room picks up various colors from paintings. I love art of all medium and style: photography, watercolor or impressionism oil painting. I pick a certain type of art to work with a room I decorate; but I also like to try eclectic surprises too!

  91. Jen N. says:

    I love a good mix!

  92. Erin says:

    I love prints and abstracts mostly, but I enjoy looking at all types of artwork!

  93. Mary says:

    I’ve come to love a good mix of art, but will always love a painted floral or still life. What a great collection of books.

  95. Dee in BC says:

    I’m all for the eclectic medley look!

  96. Jess says:

    The art looks great in your kitchen!. I prefer a good mix of art throughout my apartment. I’m not too stuck on any one genre in particular. My kitchen & bathroom both have a bright & abstract tone to them. My bedroom and living room are both more muted, with oil paintings and watercolors.

  97. Kim Olea says:

    I love good art. I have water colors, still-life’s, scenery, I like abstracts…so I guess my answer is a medley!

  98. Mimi says:

    I like a nice eclectic medley that I can change as I wish!

  105. Tara S says:

  107. Darla says:

  113. Heidi says:

    I love family photography (black and whites mixed with color), and simple silhouettes.

  114. Sharon McGuire says:

    I like an eclectic mix of art. Right now in my kitchen I have two “antique” metal trays with botanicals and two graphic travel posters from the twenties and a black board. The family room has molas and an antique etching that belonged to my grandfather. The bathroom has a Thai brass rubbing. The hall is alas, barren. This would help!

  115. Shannon says:

    I love watercolors for my kitchen and oil paintings in the rest of the house. Thanks.

  116. Rene Estephan says:

    I am renovating and would love some new art work for the walls. I loved the watercolor of the trees!

    You are extremely talented and I look to you for inspiration all the time. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity…what great books!

  118. ErinY says:

    I like a good mix of everything, but my recent favorite pen and ink drawings or block prints, like the octopus you have at the bottom of the post.

  119. Wendy says:

    I prefer originals, but love a medley as well.

  120. michele Owens says:

    I love a medley of them all. I find tranquility in black & white, color, scenary,photograpy, etc….

  121. Teresa says:

    I love the art work you selected for your kitchen. I love a mix of good artwork, but am especially drawn to watercolors.

  122. Anu says:

    Beautiful prints. love a medley. as I like to change as the season changes.

  123. Madelyn says:

    I used to think I liked specific types of art – botanicals, abstracts, etc. – but now realize I like ALL types of art. I try to buy whatever I respond to when I see it and I know I can always make a place for it in my home.

  124. Leah says:

    My favorite artwork items are prints, for sure. Love these books!

  125. Sharon Vipond says:

  126. Heather says:

    Love your kitchen! I like medley of all. :)

  127. Jen says:

    I wouldn’t have guessed it, but the first two “real” pieces of original art I bought were beautifully detailed pastels. It’s not an easy medium to work with and I love the subjects and the skill each one represents.

  128. Watercolor and pen+ink sketches.

  129. Mary says:

    I love watercolor landscapes. I also love the little owl picture in your kitchen!

  130. Erica says:

  132. Kathleen says:

    Brilliant! I always struggle with “what to put on the wall”….also “what to put on the feet” but that’s another story. I like watercolors and traditional art.

  133. Connie Schutrick says:

    I am most often drawn to abstracts and pen and ink drawings. Then, of course, there’s the
    traditional print in my hallway, and the landscape photography taken in my travels, plus….

  134. Alicia Webber says:

    I love either black and white photography, or abstract art with a cool color palette.

  135. Marie says:

    I love any medium that speaks to me, but there is something I find especially beautiful about photography. Images found in reality. But who doesn’t love a bit of fantasy as well? You made excellent choices in your kitchen display, and I have to day, the owl is my favorite c:

  136. Cecily Berg says:

    I am always drawn to watercolor sketches of city scenes. I have a collection from Germany that my grandparents began collecting in the 60’s and they’ve since passed them on to me.

  137. The pics look awesome! So clean and elegant… thanks for the great idea =)

  138. Ashley says:

  140. WendyK says:

    I like many different kids of art, but am particularly partial to watercolor botanicals, especially those with a more modern feel rather than the traditional realistic illustrations. Thanks for the giveaway.

  141. Jessica says:

    I love the prints!

  142. Holley says:

    Medley! No way I could choose….no way.

  143. Toria Davis says:

  144. Alicia says:

    I love prints!

  145. Ellen says:

    I think I’m eclectic but I tent to be drawn towards certain subject matters.

    I always lean towards photography (particularly vistas and forest shots), but love the octopus drawing in the bottom left-hand corner shot.

  147. Beth says:

    My favorites are photography and abstracts.

  148. Tejaswini says:

    Love the octopus and the tree prints!!

  149. Ursula says:

    I’m drawn to watercolor landscapes.

  150. Heather E says:

    I love a medley. I always try to go with one theme but always it never works for me.

  151. Angela N says:

    I would love these!! I just framed a calendar for my girls’ bathroom wall art. Love these prints!

  152. Lydia says:

    I like water colors and landscapes especially but also like other types of art. Variety is nice,

  153. Julie says:

    I have an assortment of vintage fabric/needle art mixed with photographs, prints and original drawings.

  154. Jenna says:

    Ohh that would be a toss up between photography and watercolour. Perhaps a well curated combination of the two!

  155. Colleen says:

    I really like a mixture of abstract and landscapes prints

  156. Kathryn says:

    I love a medley, and I have frames scattered around the house that get changed out a few times a year. I have a folder of things I love, and really, there is just no more room in this house for hanging anything, so I just switch things out. Fun! Thank you for the chance to win. What a wonderful group of books.

  157. Definitely a medley for me. Keeps things interesting. And I am desperately in need of some art inspiration! Yours looks beautiful. I am redoing my kitchen in all white, with bits of blue for accent, and they really are perfect for that.

  158. Taryn W. says:

    I love photography but like to mix in prints and water colors.

  159. Rebecca says:

    I love botanicals and landscapes. I’m on a tight budget so I always any kind of artwork was probably out of my reach but your blog has shown me that that’s not true. Thanks!

  160. Elizabeth Cantrell says:

    Acrylic abstracts speak to my heart but I also love watercolor and colored pencil!

  161. nancie says:

    i love paintings – abstracts and watercolors are my favorites!

    I love photographed landscapes. :-) Thanks!

  170. stephanie says:

    Love them all!! Would be great to have any of them!

  171. I like traditional art. My favorite is oil paintings but I have several photographs and prints. This is so neat.

  172. Lee says:

    I really love the eclectic and the watercolors. I like the vintage, soft easy tones. That owl is pretty darn cute too!

  173. Christy says:

    I love your display, it’s just what I would have picked. I prefer soft blues and greens, perhaps a beige – and have several bird prints around my house (my favorites are watercolor chickadee and Carolina wren prints that I custom ordered from an artist in Gatlinburg, TN. With a deckle edge, they’re just gorgeous free mounted together in a black frame.

  174. sheryl says:

    Variety is the key for me – I don’t subscribe to just one form. But my favorite art to display always includes something from my 5 kids!

  175. Julie b says:

    Love me some impressionist landscapes!

  176. Cathleen says:

    I love many types of art, my favorites being drawing, painting, prints, and sculptures. Your selection of prints above the kitchen mantle is perfect. You have a great way of putting things together!

  177. JessBK says:

    I almost always go for landscapes and photography but all of what you’ve shown looks beautiful and I’ve been trying to figure out what to display in our kitchen. Thanks!

  178. Kristin C says:

    I like all kinds of art! I have some prints, oils and photography in my living area right now =)

    I’m a sucker for photography, but am really loving abstracts lately!

  180. Carolyn says:

    I’m usually drawn to photographs or paintings with cheery colours :)

  182. Celeste says:

    I love the vintage floral and botanical prints

  183. Amy Mason says:

    Ooh, so lovely!!!!! I have been wanting to redecorate for awhile, and these might just help! I am partial to watercolors…


  184. Laura K. says:

    I like to mix it up rather than stick to one style.

  185. Laura says:

    I really like abstract pieces. I agree that they’re a nice counterpoint to traditional style. Your kitchen and artwork look great, Kate!

  186. LizlovesCam says:

    I’m a huge fan of abstract watercolors!

  187. Laura O. says:

    It’s hard to choose one, it could be an abstract paint with a great mix of colors or an amazing picture.

  188. Renata Buckel says:

    Love the watercolors and am currently loving giclee prints! I would share with my four sisters as we all love art!

  189. Melissa says:

  194. Linda says:

    I have never given a lot of thought to art in the kitchen. There were years where the kitchen art was kid art but those days are gone. I’m in the planning stages of redoing the kitchen and am delighted with this and your other kitchen posts. I’m drawn to objects and art in blues and greens throughout my house. I have photos, prints, pen and ink, watercolors, some landscapes and few abstracts – a medley of nature, botanicals, places (travel), people and pretty things. Thanks for the inspiration Kate.

  195. Angela R says:

    I love good photography but abstract is also great.

  196. Anna says:

    Art is so overwhelming to me…so much so, that I have almost all photography in my home. I am just itching to get something else up on my walls…I just don’t know where to begin!

  197. Angela says:

    I love all kinds of art! We recently finished our basement so we are faced with miles of blank walls – these books would really come in handy!

  198. Kate says:

    I love a variety. The most important thing to me is that each piece have meaning. They have to earn their spot on the wall!

  199. Susan says:

    Impossible to choose just one, I enjoy so many! Abstracts, photography & watercolor are what I’m usually drawn to.

  200. Stefanie says:

    Definitely a medley, but I’m in a watercolor phase right now!

  201. Stacey says:

    I love an eclectic look – my home is similar to Kate’s in that its more traditional but I love keeping it contemporary with some modern art. Modern florals and abstract colors are a big hit with me!

  202. Stephanie says:

    I like all kinds of art, I just like it to be meaningful.

  203. Rachael says:

    I love watercolors of botanicals and animals. These books would be so fun to own!

  204. Ivona says:

    Love watercolors, mainly landscapes, but animals and flowers as well. Thank you for your post.

  205. Trudy says:

    I like all kinds of art. Currently I am in an eclectic phase.

  206. Kathryn says:

    Love love botanicals !!

  207. Jenelle says:

    Paintings and photography are my favorites, but I’m starting to like abstracts more and more.

  208. Katie says:

    I love photos, but I think an ecclectic mix looks best!

  209. I love the prints you picked! I’m usually really drawn to acrylic paintings mostly of landscapes or trees and have been getting really drawn into watercolors recently. I have trouble committing though, so these books look really helpful!

  210. Raquel says:

    I love art! Photography–I’m just an amateur, but love it. Watercolors in beautiful greens, blues, oranges–the colors of nature. I love pictures and paintings of trees, birds, clouds, etc… These would be wonderful to own! Thanks!

  211. Amanda says:

    I love art, and my house it bare at the moment. I love prints, watercolors, and drawings. Love the giveaway!

  212. anima says:

    I love water color arts and nice real life phtography prints… hm…

  213. Anne M. says:

    I love all kindsof art. .. photos, pop art and watercolor are my faves… lovely books!

  214. Jamie says:

    I like a mixture but since I just had a baby photographs are taking over!

  215. TLR says:

    I lean toward landscapes and watercolors. I’ve been adding my child’s art to my decor which are more abstract and bright but I love the new style. Thanks for another great contest!

  216. Sheila Greene says:

    I don’t have a preference as much as I like what stirs something within me.

  217. Elizabeth P says:

    I’m on a mission to fill our walls and find myself turning to photography and prints.

  218. My favorite art means something, whether it’s a family photo, art picked up on a trip, or just a piece that I truly love! I have no real rules, just that I must love it!

  219. nathalie says:

    I love all kinds of art! right now I’m really into photography.

  220. sue hurd says:

    I like all kinds of art, but especially watercolors and photography!

  222. Brenda Cote says:

    I love watercolors. Landscapes are my favorite. We’re updating our kitchen now — your gallery has inspired me! Simple. Beautiful.

  223. Courtney O says:

    a Medley! we are just getting into housekeeping, so I am still figuring out what I like best! :)

  224. Cait says:

    I prefer paintings and photography.

  225. Brianna K. says:

    I love a mixture of both photography and paintings/prints for wall art.

  226. deb says:

    I used not to think about art too much….until you inspired me last year! I have since bought several giclee prints from your favorite etsy artists!

  227. Emily says:

    The books look beautiful! I love watercolor.

  228. Amy in PA says:

    I like photography & watercolors, but have a little bit of everything around the house!

  229. Fayth cate says:

    I love water color and prints! Starting a art wall in my sitting room!

  230. Michelle says:

    I love photography. These books are a great idea!

  231. Rebecca says:

    I like anything with New York, or history-related.

  232. Ann says:

    I love watercolors and pen and ink the most. I have collected art from local artists from all of my travels and have those displayed throughout my home. I have watercolors, pen and ink drawings, oil paintings, sculptures and hand blown glass all made from local artists I met throughout Europe and Australia.

  233. Sarah r. says:

    My favorites are photography and prints!

  234. Heather says:

    Watercolors are my favorite. I have really come to appreciate and love all art though!

  235. Annie says:

    I love modern and retro prints and I’m a sucker for abstract watercolors. Great giveaway!

  236. BamaCarol says:

    I mostly love abstract prints. I have quite a few family antiques in our home and I think the abstract sets those off nicely and gives me more of an eclectic look and makes it appear more modern and up to date.

  237. Melissa says:

    Wow! You pretty much summed up my art preferences: watercolors, abstract, blues and greens plus some nature mixed in. The art looks great and I love the idea of placing them over the stove. It really does add an updated and even eclectic touch to an otherwise traditional kitchen. Thanks for the idea. Also, thanks for the giveaway!

  238. Jannelle says:

    I love whimsical art. Things taht make people smile when they look at it.

  239. Lori L says:

    I have always loved landscapes! I am really starting to like abstract painting though and may try to incorporate some into my home.

  240. Jennifer says:

    I love floral and landscape prints. They’re just so happy to me!

  241. amy says:

    I like painted landscapes, and collages. Who am I kidding, I like all art! :)

  242. Rebecca says:

    Those are such a neat idea! I usually prefer watercolors and graphic prints, but I love mixing different art types together.

  243. Erin says:

    I love prints and watercolors :)

  244. Marybeth says:

    I’m always in awe of beautiful black and white photography.

  245. Elizabeth says:

    I love photography as well as watercolors!

  246. Jacqueline says:

    I just did a gallery wall in a very long hallway and love using prints from books. I had over 30 frames to fill, so there are quite a few that remain empty. I’m just waiting for the perfect pieces of art. I have filled ours with art from my son and family members as well as from books and love the monotone look. Much of the art is neutral – grays, beiges, browns, cream, white. It’s starting to look fabulous. I love watercolour and pencil and ink drawings.

  247. JillD says:

    I love Photography and Still Life…what a great collection of books, would love to own them. Thanks for the chance!

  248. Tara G. says:

    I am also drawn to watercolors. I usually choose a piece of original art from the places we have visited while stationed overseas. It’s fun to see them on the wall and remember good times, and what great conversation starters with our guests.

  249. I love photographs of flowers and anything nautical to add into our home. I feel that it helps keep the home calm and welcoming!

  250. Meghan says:

    Yes, I definitely love a medley of art types. I guess I could narrow it down to abstract and prints as my current favourites.

  251. Erin P says:

    Watercolors are my favorite, but I would love to branch out and add a few different pieces of art throughout my home!

  252. Sharon says:

    Looking at the covers of those books, I don’t know what I lean towards…..I see beautiful stuff on all the covers…..I think I lean towards modern and whimsical.

  253. Simple, but really nice idea


  254. Becky says:

    I have started painting abstracts in the last year. I confuse my husband who likes representational art, but I love them.

  255. Tanya says:

    I appreciate all different kinds of art, but especially paintings!

  256. Kristin says:

    Based on what’s around my home already, my favorite is animal photography. But I’m trying to branch out!

  257. Diahn Ott says:

    I love all sorts of art, but anything involving letters/words and excellent photography are high on my list!

  258. Ashley says:

    I prefer a medley.

  259. Vicki M. says:

    I like a mix of color pieces that coordinate with the rest of the decor. I like to let the artwork be the color pop in a space.

  260. Nicole says:

    I love landscapes. Especially anything with trees. Especially trees in fall colors. Or trees where you just the silhouette of the branches against the sky. They just speak to me. Usually they’re telling me to buy them and bring them home with me. Haha.

  261. Ellen says:

    I enjoy a variety of art, from originals and prints to photography. Depends on the room. I do like a little something amusing to be included among the more serious offerings.

  262. dawn says:

    I just happened to come across your blog. I love these books! I’ve never come across them before. If I don’t win I’d be interested in purchasing them. Where can you find them? I’m getting ready to redo a gallery wall in my home and love photography prints. However, I’m also interested in interspersing other prints with my photos. I’m looking forward to checking out all of your finds and decorating tips!

  263. Allison says:

    I’m definitely drawn to a variety of art forms (which may be why I have such a difficult time choosing what to display in my home).

  264. risia says:

    I am in desperate need of new prints for living/dining rooms. I really love botanicals.
    Love the peacock feather you got, maybe I’ll be lucky for the giveaway, fingers crossed!!
    Thank you

  265. Nicole Marie says:

    My mom collected numbered prints when I was growing up, so I am partial to prints and photography. But I also love abstract paintings. Overall I’m a contemporary girl. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  266. katecooks says:

    Right now, I am loving all kinds of letterpress prints!!

  267. Tori Chauvin says:

    I love watercolors and photography

  268. You simply cannot go wrong with a medley! I’m most often drawn to photography and more contemporary prints though.

  269. Vicki says:

    I love eclectic and contemporary, thanks!

  270. Susan says:

    My kids’ drawings and paintings, my husband’s grandmother’s paintings, my own photographs. i.e., personal art — not masterpieces or worth much to anyone outside our 4 walls, but meaningful to us.

  271. Katie says:

    I love old blueprints/technical drawings/scientific drawings. We recently found some original blueprints from my husband’s alma mater, I can’t wait to get them hung up!

    I would love to try the Medley. The walls in our house are bare, so I would like to try different ones!!

  275. Cindy says:

    I like a mix of everything… Paintings are my favorite, though

  276. Pardeep says:

    I love prints! So many great prints out there!

  277. Jenna says:

    Wow, very cool books. I personally love portrait photography, but I think it’s kind of weird to have photos of random people up in your home. So for my own home, I’m drawn to painterly landscapes… Hawaii, big cities, all done in muted shades and in a fun style (not realistic). Wow, was that specific enough or what?! haha, crossing my fingers!

  278. Melissa says:

    I am loving these prints and the brilliant way you displayed them!

  279. Janet says:

    Botanicals and watercolors! Perfect for my home.

  280. Nichole B. says:

    Watercolor is my favorite! I’m even starting to try some myself! I also love pallet knife painting:)

  281. Angie says:

    I love contemporary and dreamy watercolor prints!

  282. I love creating my own art work. I would say my taste veers toward eclectic. These books look like such fun!

  283. Kimberly says:

    I love these books and think it would be a big help for me to find some new art for our downstairs bathroom. Bathroom art is hard to find! It needs to be just right for a small room. I love pretty florals or “nature” art – trees, leaves, etc. Thanks for the post!

  284. Jennie says:

    I like the eclectic look!

  285. Michelle W. says:

    I love prints and watercolors!

  286. Erica says:

    I tend to lean towards landscapes, cityscapes and florals lately.

  290. Jenna says:

  291. Laura L says:

    I love abstract and am in LOVE with that octopus print! Would be fun to win these….

  292. Alana U says:

    I love paintings, but am horrible at choosing them, so the books would be great!

  293. Vanessa says:

    I love a medley, but landscapes and nature are my favorite – they seem so timeless to me.

  294. Erika says:

    I love watercolor paintings. I’ve tried my hand at them and failed miserably, so I’m just in awe of beautiful ones :)

  295. Laura Kent says:

    I love abstract and eclectic art!!!!

  296. Nicole says:

  297. Laura P says:

    I love a mixture of art types, though I lean mostly towards contemporary pieces.

    I love all art so a medly would be my answer. Watercolor is fantastic. I love botanicals, animals, landscapes and just about everything else!

  299. Casey says:

    Oooh I love landscapes. Seascapes, rather. I feel so calm by the ocean so infusing seascapes throughout my home makes me smile.

  300. Debbie C says:

    I love photography, but I like all types of art on the wall!

  301. Kim K says:

    I love all art but really am fond of photographs. I think in part because of the skill and, most importantly, timing that is required in many instances to catch an interesting/ spontaneous shot.

  302. Jean says:

    Any of the abstracts would look great in our 1950’s ranch style home!

  303. Dana says:

    It looks great! I’m partial to abstracts myself.

  304. Devon says:

    Black & White photos or watercolors are my favorites. I recently found your site and love your ideas. I shared your staircase remodel with my mother-in-law and I now have a new project. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Thank you for the clear step-by-step photos. You make the big projects much more approachable for this weekend warrior and new mom to twins.

  327. Amy says:

    My favorite kind of art is photography, but I like prints a lot also!

  334. oh wow, I would really love to win these! I don’t know if I have a favorite kind of art. If I had to pick one I’d say abstract. I love colors that evoke some kind of nostalgia without necessarily being “about” something. Thanks for the giveaway! Those prints look beautiful in your kitchen!

  335. Kim says:

    I love anything with nature in it, and also favor blues and greens. Thanks!

    These are all lovely. Right now I’m more into photography and antique botanical prints. But I love all art!

  339. sydney85 says:

    Depending on the room. Love watercolors for bedrooms and bathrooms. Large prints for living and dining areas usually abstract. After seeing the watercolors in your kitchen I think I would love a change in my kitchen and also add watercolors. The look is soft and clean. Thanks for making me think differently about art.

  340. Patty Reed-Pederson says:

    I am drawn to landscapes. Esp. Water, trees, etc. Still looking for the perfect print for our bathroom redo. Thanks again for sharing. You have such a “fresh” taste in everything you choose!

  343. Dani says:

    I love retro art and impressionists. Thanks for the giveaway!

  344. Alison says:

  369. Holly says:

    I like a mix on my walls but abstracts are my fave

  370. Dymphna says:

    I just ordered a pair of prints from Etsy which are a mix of sketch & photography.

  387. Denise W says:

    In our home we have quite an ecclectic mix of art that we enjoy. Some of my phogography, some of our sons. We have water colors and oils, prints and posters. All that makes us happy in our home. Thank you for sharing!

    What a perfect idea! I’ve been loving the look of vintage botanical and science prints lately.

  390. Kara says:

  391. Brooke says:

    Love those books! I personally like watercolor and prints – but my taste is always changing. :)

  573. trina says:

  580. Mimi Matthews says:

    Those books are a great idea! I love Impressionism. For me, it’s Monet all the way!

  583. Beth says:

  587. tonia prula says:

    Depending on the room, I tend to make different choices in art. I LOVE my grandparent’s vintage oils in our living room but favor watercolors in the kitchen and other areas. Whatever the media, it is all nature and animal art! Thanks for a GREAT blog!


    I’m usually drawn to black & white photography, but seeing the lovely prints you’ve shared with us has inspired me to try something new. I love the calmness of the colors in the prints you’re displaying!

  589. Megan C. says:

    I like many different kinds of art! The trick for me is grouping them cohesively :)

  590. Katie says:

    I love a mix of all depending on where they are in my house. Nature prints are always lovely. Thanks for the chance.

  591. Jen says:

    As a former art student, I am drawn (no pun intended) to original art when I can afford it, and usually to representational art as opposed to abstract. My small collection has an assortment of landscape, still life, and figurative, but none in the classic traditional sense. I prefer a bit of whimsy in each piece, and each piece makes me smile.

  592. shannon macklam says:

    I love prints with pops of red.

  593. Shirley says:

    These books are a great idea! I love Impressionism. For me, it’s Monet all the way!

  597. Chelsea Wilson says:

    I love handmade art. Any time I travel, I love to check out art faires and buy handmade art from the locals – even if it’s just a print that I can frame wen I get home, it’s still special to me!

  598. Carolyn in Utah says:

    I loved the Impressionists in my teens and twenties. I’m much older now and I love Abstract art!

  599. Shari Allen says:

    I love ALL types of art, but when it comes specifically to the kitchen I opted for Pop Art – customized cartoons of my husband and I that all have a kitchen or food-related theme. I printed 14 8 x 10 canvasses and mounted them on the bulkheads – an underutilized wall space in the kitchen, if you have them. The goal was to brighten the ugliest kitchen ever until we’re able to do a proper renovation. It’s not nearly as sophisticated as your kitchen art collection, but it sure does inject a lot of FUN into the space! If you’re curious to see how it turned out, visit my website.

  600. Mary ann says:

    I too am drawn to all types if Art but especially like a bit of contemporary to give a fresh update to my tradional decor. What a great giveaway!

    I love nature photography and quilts! I have three quilts hanging as art.

  602. Mona Kuntz says:

    I like it all, but I tend to go first for abstracts or paintings done in an abstract/impressionistic type manner. Or I like the artwork to have people or animals in them. I bought a great painting of a rooster in Chile — I would have liked the horse painting but it was huge!! Brightly colored, it makes me happy just to look at it. I’m also a fan of Migliorisi, a painter from Paraguay, who paints these profile pictures (said to be of his mother) …they are also brightly colored and fabulous. There is also a Russian painter from Kyrgyzstan whom I enjoy tremendously. He does great animal prints and landscapes, but he includes in every painting a little bit of felt (ubiquitous if you live in Kyrgyzstan). Fun stuff, colorful, and stimulating! I would dearly love to win these books and spend hours poring over them.

  603. Kristin politsch says:

    I LOVE the idea of those art books. I’ve never heard of such a thing. That owl one is super cute yet tasteful. I love watercolor but tend toward hanging photography & oil landscapes in my home. You’re forcing me to look around & I’m seeing lots of different art in my home. I guess I’m all over the board. :)

  604. Cynthia says:

    This is such a classy and clean look. Right now I’m helping my mom decorate her new senior living space. Ideas like this help me figure out how to help her. Thank you!

  605. Joan Hawley says:

    I love art with texture and depth, or history with character and a story. I really enjoyed your post, love the idea of the books and hope you are feeling better soon.

  606. CV Linton says:

    Abstract Landscapes are my new favorite.
    I love the images that take me to regions unknown and known, but still leave a lot to the imagination.
    Some days the vivid images in the foreground standout. Other days I look to the horizon and see a whole new scene in front of me. is my new favorite website with great prices and a huge variety of known and unknown artists. Give yourself at least an hour to surf the site. It’s like reading a good book. Totally sucks you in!

  607. Ashley says:

    I love all different kinds of art, but normally the brighter and more colorful the better. Since we are on a majorly strict budget, though, our home is seriously lacking in the art department. These books would be the perfect thing to get us jump started!

  608. Sandra says:

    I love photography. All the art in my house used to be black and white. Now I’m trying to slowly change it out with color. These books would be perfect!

  609. Bre says:

    Love the post! I like paintings, and I would love to win these books to look over all of the beautiful art.

  610. Retro-roost says:

    Art with a history, whether a painting or sculpture, can be intriguing. If found at an estate sale, thrift store, garage sale, or a toss out on the curb, all the better. These pieces express style, wit, charm, and can often be the crowning touch to a finished a room (if there ever is a finished room, lol).

  611. Loralee says:

    Abstract. I get bored easily and so I don’t like a picture that just has to be the same thing all of the time. With abstract, you see different things in it all the time and it can be whatever you want it to be, and then you can change your mind and it can be something else.

  612. Susan says:

    Watercolors make me happy.

  613. Roxanne says:

    Centsational!!!! If I don’t win, I’m going to buy them myself. I like all types of art. I’m not really picky on the type of art. If I like it, then it’s good for me. Get well soon. I really like your blog.

  614. Leslie says:

    As an event planner who assists running several highly ranked Arts & Crafts Festivals in the Southwest, I love original art! It is most meaningful to buy a piece from an artist who you’ve met and can explain the inspiration behind the work. I would love to learn about the trends for decorating with art, this collection of books is wonderful.

  615. Susan B says:

    Love the framed pictures idea, simply elegant, modern but not pretentious.
    I prefer a medley, makes it more personal for ones own home.

  616. Spycegurl says:

    Whimsical – i like it to be whimsical and interesting!

  617. Lois C says:

    I think the books look like an amazing way to get me off ‘square one’ to get some art on the walls. We moved into a small condo 3 years ago and have struggled to find anything that makes both of us smile. We love all types of art, which is part of the stagnation problem. I would be so thrilled to receive the art books. I think perferating the pages is brilliant and so generous of the artists. Thank you for the chance.
    P.S. Loving the blog

  618. Leslie says:

    There are so many talented artists in the world! I love all mediums and right now am drawn to colorful large scale abstracts.

  619. becky says:

    I love photography. I love to see other peoples view of ordinary objects.

  620. Donna says:

    I like the traditional and the contempory home. I like watercolor with contemporary set-ups or point of view. I’m not much of a fan of total abstraction. I still look for something realistic in them. I can’t make sense of them.

  621. Nancy says:

    I like nature and botanical art! These books look great!

  622. Kathy P. says:

    I love photography but have a medley in my home. I also have many wonderful pieces that were created by my kids!

  623. Ellen says:

    What a great idea! I love a contemporary look. Also have a love of watercolors.

  624. Mary says:

    I love many different art forms but I am particularly fond of botanicals and watercolors. Thank you for sharing so much wonderful information on your posts.

  625. Shannon C says:

    I do love all types, but would love to put a little more contemporary touch into my mostly traditional home. I will still look for these books. Thanks so much.

  626. Stef says:

    I love the art of photography! There is a beauty to life frozen in time at that very moment.

  627. Sabrina says:

    Usually I gravitate onwards nature/botanicals. And doors. I love doors! Thanks for the opportunity to win these books,@

  628. Julanne says:

    I love all kids of art and actually started posting one piece per day on Facebook this year! These books look lovely!

  629. kat m says:

    I love watercolor art and letterpress! Also, anything with birds– the prints and originals by Golly Bard are fabulous. Also love etsy artists like Emily Martin of The Black Apple and Catherine Campbell of myfolklover!

  630. Gina says:

    I prefer a medley of art. These books are a neat idea!

  631. Deb Nathan says:

    I’ve always been pretty traditional about art, but lately I’ve found myself attracted to more contemporary pieces. Having the variety would be lovely!

  632. Kathy says:

    I’m interested in all types, I love watercolors the most. I probably prefer traditional over abstract.

  633. Kathy says:

    I love a little bit of a lot of things, so I guess I’ll choose “a medley”

  634. Amanda says:

    I love a medley- it mostly depends on the decor of the room. I moved into our house 7 months ago and still don’t have a single thing on the walls. These would REALLY help get started!

  635. Heather says:

    I love a medley of original art that has a sense of whimsy to it – bordering on abstract or personal. These books look so fun – what a great idea!

  636. jenny davis says:

    I love black and white photography!

  637. Julie Irwin says:

    I love an eclectic mix that reflects our family’s personality! Photography and oil paintings are some of my favorites!

  638. Suzanne says:

    I love abstract landscapes! And I really love beach colors that just make me feel relaxed.

  639. Margaret says:

    Art – like beauty – is in the eye of the beholder. As long as I find it appealing, I’ll throw it up on the wall!

  640. Laura says:

    I particularly enjoy photography art. Just saw a segment on TV of a person in Hawaii taking some amazing photos of waves.

  641. I have an eclectic style when it comes to art. Love the collection you put together. These books look fantastic….thanks for the chance to win!

  642. MARY EGUIA says:

    would love these.

  643. Kelly says:

    I love water colors, love the prints you picked for your kitchen.

  644. Tejaswini says:

    I love the octopus prints and the tree prints.

  645. debtgirl says:

    I love paintings. Oil or acrylics. I love prints as well as collage. I love art. It makes me happy, I just wish I had more time to enjoy it.

  646. Suzanne Lindsay says:

    Can we buy these if we don’t win? I love beach prints, animal prints and floral prints. Love your blog!!!

  647. Ashley says:

    I love all kinds of art really. Bright colours and animal prints tend to catch my eye the most. I would love to add some of these to my wall gallery!

  648. Matilde says:

    I prefer a medley and all kinds of media. Recently I’ve been drawn to prints.

  649. Delainah says:

    I’m an eclectic kind of gal, however, my first love is photography. My husband and I just finished renovating our home (after three very long years) and have many, many walls that are in desperate need of some color love. Love the books! Perforated art – genius!

  650. Linda B says:

    I like things to look clean and uncluttered. Black and white photography has always been one of my favorites.

  651. mary says:

    I love all kinds of art and switch out my wall art seasonally. I’m always looking for new artists on etsy. In fact, I love your watercolor print of the sunflower on your etsy site!

  652. Brie E says:

    I had no idea something like this existed! I love all of them- what a beautiful idea!

  653. Susan says:

    I love watercolor and photography!

  654. Joanne says:

    I love to have a mix – original art, prints, photographs. Anything so long as it’s colourful and special to me!

  655. Alisa D says:

    I love all types! I typically don’t go super modern, but then again, sometimes that grabs my eye too.

  656. jeanfrnces says:

    Watercolors are also a favorite of mine…colorful and absract!
    A nice juxtaposition next to traditional furniture.

  657. Susan says:

    I love watercolors the most, but funny thing I don’t actually own any!

  658. KVanderMeyren V says:

    Normally i lean towards the traditional, but find I am loving bits of all styles these days, learning to appreciate art of all kinds!

  659. Nandini says:

    I like watercolor and eclectic art. Your new kitchen art display is beautiful.

  660. I love photography and watercolor especially for wall decor

  661. Karen VanderMey says:

    Love things about each style! Maybe I’m eclectic!

  662. Stephanie says:

    I like to mix it up, keeping the colors in the palette the unifying element. I would love to win this! fingers crossed!

  663. CONNIE says:

    It’s really hard for me to pick just one style. Also too hard to just pick one medium, but I can say that on my walls I’d love contemporary art.

  664. Irene Sherlund says:

    My tastes are eclectic. I go from 19th century to 20th century oils and watercolors. Lately, I’ve been interested in illustrations from children’s books and portraits of women. I like your display of art in the kitchen; contrasting “soft” images with a modern black frame.

  665. Sarah says:

    Love this! My office needs some new art :)

  666. Bri D. says:

    Photography is my favorite!

  667. JennyA says:

    I love each and every print you picked and the frames, I would love to win these books!

  668. Liz says:

    I love watercolrs.

  669. Jill says:

    Love these! I’d probably lean to abstract and contemporary the most, but also think they need some balance with traditional at times. Thanks!

  670. Kiran says:

    I love a little bit of everything. Handmade art, botanical prints, landscapes, and abstract combined together throughout a home feels, to me, as though the homeowner took time and care with their art choices rather than just grabbing a bunch of stuff at one store and calling it done.
    Ps. I have that same rug in my laundry room!

  671. Christina says:

    I love all kinds of art, but I am more drawn to blues and greens as well.

  672. Amber Styron says:

    I love the colors associated with folk art. I think they are so vibrant and lively!

  673. michelle corbo says:

    I’m a fan of photography, but not limited to anything.. I love what inspires me!

  674. Kelly Gross says:

    I am starting to put together my nursery and I need some art.
    I love photography and landscapes, but I do like a mix when put together.

  675. Shara Aatsap says:

    I love art and have found that my tastes have changed over the years. I used to prefer the impressionists paintings, but now I gravitate towards prints and more contemporary paintings. I would love to have some original art for my walls, but my wallet suggests that these books you posted about would be a better option for now. :)

  676. Patti P says:

    My first love will always be watercolor, but I really enjoy photography too.

  677. Vickie says:

    I have a bare wall staring at me and haven’t been able to commit to any one style yet. These books would be perfect, allowing me to swap out art and try different looks.

  678. Tricia says:

    Love all art, depending on my mood I am attracted to different things! Photography one week, watercolors the next!

  679. Denise says:

    I like a medley of art. It is just whatever catches my eye and draws me to it. The prints in your kitchen look great!

  680. Sandra says:

    I love all types of art, but I tend to purchase more prints and abstracts.

  681. Sandy says:

    Watercolors are my favorite! These books are such a great idea. The prints you picked out look awesome in your kitchen.

  682. Terrye Holcomb says:

    Just what I’ve been waiting for! I have two carved frames that are excited to be filled. I’m sure to find art that inspires me in these lovely books!
    Thanks Centsational Girl for introducing us to these treasures.

  683. stephanie says:

    I love anything floral: watercolors, my grandma’s china paintings and photos from vacations we’ve taken.

  684. Hannah says:

    Watercolor and photography

  685. Bonnie P says:

    Thanks those look great!
    I love the softness of water colors.

  686. Barb says:

    These books are the greatest idea ever! I think the traditional one would work excellent in my house!

  687. Marisa Botello says:

    Perfect timing bc I’m in search of some type of art work for our bedroom. I love all types of art – favs are abstract and prints. Thank you!

  688. My daughters oil paintings.

  689. Denise says:

    Would love to win this, the art is beautiful! I am really into abstract art these days…

  690. kay sparks says:

    Love watercolors and the ones you chose are so refreshing!

  691. Nora N says:

    I prefer the Eclectic style, watercolors, funky animal drawings, or typography

  692. Karen says:

    Well, there’s watercolor…especially of water and flowers…and botanicals……and bright things that make me smile….and…I like it all! Thanks for offering us a chance to update our rooms.

  693. T says:

    It’s too hard to pick a favorite, so I’ll have to say a medley! Thanks for the chance.

  694. Kelly says:

    I love nature-inspired art — especially photographs and paintings. I’m also currently into handmade prints with all kinds of themes.

  695. Kara says:

    I really love these books! The art is beautiful. I especially love nature picture and prefer contemporary. I enjoy your blog. Thank you!

  696. Molly says:

    I love traditional art, but every now and then I get so excited by some zippy, slightly funky, bright colored piece of more eclectic art. It find it keeps things fresh and fun. I have framed things from magazines and many other sources and have them hanging with real oil paintings. These books seem like they would be a treasure trove of fun!

  697. Sarah says:

    I love a mix of styles, it just depends on the room and decor. Your vignette is a great mix of prints while keeping the same mood and color scheme. Looks great!

  698. Nancy Scher says:

    What a perfect time to have this giveaway! I’ve been taking artwork, (vintage posters, my son’s drawings, postcards), to our favorite local frame shop these past few weeks. I am a lover of all things eclectic. Black and white photography, traditional, prints, all work for me. Thanks for blogging.

  699. Tara says:

    Hello- These Art Books are reminiscent of the eclectic Art Books from the 1970’s. They look very inspirational! I love a mix of styles and scale that are brought together by a commonality of color and/or texture.

  700. Mssy A. says:

    Thank you for the contest! My favorite art is photography and paintings.

  701. Becky says:

    I love all kinds of art, maybe landscapes the most. Would love to peruse these books!

  702. TRACY says:

    I seem to be attracted towards watercolors too. blues & yellows. I am loving different styles of maps too & leaning more & more towards abstract styles

  703. I love art in all its incarnations. What a lovely book!

  704. Christina says:

    I love photography and watercolor! Especially landscapes!

  705. Amanda H says:

    Thanks for this giveaway! My style depends on what part of the house I’m decorating. For the kids rooms definitely eclectic and whimsical. For the rest of the house I like what I like. It’s hard narrowing down a style; as long as I love it I will find a place to put it.

  706. I like photos of places I’ve been…which I am now trying to capture myself. that said, I am just your novice photographer.

  707. Frankie says:

    Just lovely

  708. Julie Lourie says:

    Art speaks to my heart in so many different ways. My transitional home showcases contemporary, traditional and natural elements. This collection of artwork would be a welcome addition to any home.

  709. Cheryl says:

    I am drawn to watercolors. Abstract, nature and the like. I would love to know the original source of that owl!

  710. “The purpose of Art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” Pablo Picasso
    I prefer all art especially abstract art that challenges my mind and soul!

  711. Catherine says:

    I am always drawn to photography but my favorite type of art seems to be sketch and watercolor combos.

  712. Joanne says:

    I like to use photographs as well as botanical prints.

  713. ekelly says:

    Although I am somewhat partial to photographs, lithographs and water colours, I am appreciative of the visions and expressions undertaken by various artists in creating, beautiful visual spaces for all.

  714. Heather C says:

    I love abstract art! What awesome books!

  715. Rebecca says:

    I’d LOVE to get a set of these art books. If I had to pick one favorite I would say paintings.

  716. Becky Cigoy says:

    I love the water color owl and the idea of pull out pages these art books offer is awesome. My art tastes are more a medley.

  717. sandy Strohacker says:

    I love this idea, but never knew about the availability of these books. Would love to see them, better yet win them! My favorite would be the medley.

  718. Katie says:

    It’s so difficult to choose just one style of art, which must mean I like an eclectic mix!

  719. Kelly says:

    I have water colors, oils, pastels, photos, and mixed media around my house. I don’t think I can choose a favorite though my kiddos art would be what I would save first if we had a fire : )

  720. Kelly T. says:

    If you could see how bare my living room walls are you’d give the books to me out of pity! LOL! Thanks for the chance to win!

  721. Sarah Pope says:

    I really love any kind of handmade art! We just moved and I am ready to get some beautiful art in the walls!

  722. Michele C. says:

    I’m very eclectic- love so many forms of art! Thanks

  723. Kim W. says:

    I really love colorful photography.

  724. Ameena says:

    I definitely prefer a medley to keep things interesting. The older I get the more I appreciate so many different types of art!

    Love the peacock feather by the way…such a unique idea.

  725. Eunice says:

    ahhhh watercolor, watercolor forever and ever…

  726. Caroline Morris says:

    I love floral watercolor. And Paris.

  727. Karen says:

    What a great idea. Kind of like those plates you can buy. Very practical. I cannot pick my favorite bc I love all types. Thanks. Karen

  728. Nicole Kemer says:

    I really like a medley of different styles. The current pieces have been collected over the years…some from the days spent working at a gallery, some from my grandparents homes and some found while vacationing. All mixed in with family photos and kids artwork. Who doesn’t love a good gallery wall?!?

  729. Prints! And landscapes…and abstract. Only one answer?? Your gallery really colorfully coordinates nicely! ;)

  730. Martha says:

    I’d have to say I like the eclectic. That owl on the cover is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. So that’s my vote. Love the idea of a book of prints that you can choose from to frame. Great idea.

  731. Jill Jones says:

    Kate – Gorgeous display of extremely beautiful art pieces. I love how they complement one another. My favorite by far are botanical prints. I always without fail fall for them. These are books are wonderful. Thanks for introducing me to them.

  732. Katrina Miller says:

    I’ve been on a quest to finally get some art on my walls and have made some great Etsy finds thanks to both you and Tha handmade Home! I love many different styles but am particularly draw. To nature art.

  733. Pamela Bolton says:

    My favorites are botanicals, but a soft abstract in greens and blues could win me over.

  734. Janet says:

    I think I would love the Traditional Book best, but also love, love, love the octopus print!

  735. Heather Dodds says:

    Hi! My favorite art is paintings of landscapes. I love anything with trees!

  736. Kelly says:

    I guess it depends on what it is and how it feels. I love a photo of a pretty landscape, but a handprint turkey from my 5 year old will get put in a frame on the wall just as quickly.

  737. Ahnnie says:

    I like a medley of styles of art.

  738. Mindy Potts says:

    I love a medley. These books are brilliant and I can’t wait to see them in person!

  739. Lex says:

    I am drawn to landscapes and abstracts, but really want to branch out a little to complement what I have.

  740. Marissa says:

    I love simple watercolors, black and white photography, and framed ephemera!

  741. Heather says:

    I like a medley but lean towards prints and paintings!

  742. Etta says:

    I LOVE these books and would LOVE to get my hands on them. I love watercolors and abstract and impressionism.

  743. LC says:

    What a great idea! I love a little bit of everything, but my favorites are typically impressionist or abstract paintings.

  744. Yvonne says:

    I have to say I love abstract paintings best, but there’s always space for other art too, so probably a mix of prints and paintings for me!

  745. Michelle B says:

    OH MY! I would be so excited to win. A couple of these books have been on my Amazon wishlist. :) Until now, my favorite form of art has been photos of my son. But I’m in the process of redecorating so I’m looking for more prints.

  746. Erin HB says:

    I love a bit of everything but i lean towards photography and etsy, handcrafted prints. I love supporting creativity and small businesses.

  747. Karen Jordan says:

    Love the botanicals. A Medley would suit what we currently have in the house! The owl picture you framed is adorable!

  748. Elizabeth Le'Mon says:

    I would love any of these books! To be honest, anything to get some color on the oatmeal walls of our rental would be amazing. :) I have to say that I love water colors, anything with aqua or coral suits my taste just fine!

  749. Hanna says:

    I’m a big fan of vintage prints, especially everything nature inspired. I like the softness of the colors in them. Add some abstract prints in the same hues, or even black and white, and I’m in love!

  750. Pamela Powell says:

    I love the idea of those books. My favorite art is photography but landscape and abstracts are a close second. My husband would love the Contemporary Book.

  751. Beautiful books and great display! I like a mix of abstract and photography.

  752. Ginny Kistler says:

    I love photography and abstract art!

  753. I’d have to say my taste in art varies a lot. Photography is a hobby of mine so of course that appeals to me but my office has Monet prints (impressionist) and my house is very eclectic with a little bit of everything! Love the grouping you put together, great idea!

  754. jill says:

    wow, those books are gorgeous, would be great to have any or all of them! Love the prints you picked for your kitchen

  755. Liz H says:

    I love black and white photography and also silhouettes.

  756. I love things in all the categories! Flowers in any medium draw me in. I love 20th century european painters, I love the mod graphic stuff, most things sixties, landscapes in all mediums — the books look full of goodies!

  757. Teresa says:

    I like a medley of art.

  758. SamanthaRI says:

    What a great idea! I love all sorts of art but tend to be drawn to images involving nature.

  759. Loretta says:

    My favorite would probably be photography, although I’ve been enjoying some metal art with neat sayings on them that I snagged for 50% off recently!

  760. Emily says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I love art of many different types, but have a particular love of colorful abstract paintings. thanks for the opportunity!

  761. Kathy Banff says:

    I love different art medians. It would depend on the room décor as to which would best fit. I know I would enjoy all three.

    Thank you!

  762. kathy w says:

    I like all kinds of art. I don’t like to limit myself to a certain type because things change so often and
    it is refreshing to see something you haven’t thought of before.

  763. Joni says:

    What a great idea. Really helpful in putting together a gallery wall. I am drawn to black and white photography.

  764. Carrie says:

    I have started adding art to our kitchen and the hubs thought it had to be only roosters or apples. I found the perfect oil of a street scene and hung it immediately. The colors are so warm. I have been looking to add a few more pieces so I was excited to see your post today! Thank you as always for the inspiration.

  765. Mary M says:

    I love all kinds….love the books!

  766. Ingrid says:

    I, too, like a medley of styles. Very nice collection.

  767. Catherine says:

    I prefer a mix of styles. This set of books would be a great way to put together an interesting mix of wonderful prints.

  768. Elena says:

    Hi, I like a different styles depending on the space but I am more drawn to canvas bars tact or line paintings.

  769. Auntiepatch says:

    I love watercolor landscapes!

  770. Ann says:

    Watercolor paintings and anything coastal (ocean and beach scenes). I also like traditional subjects like flowers done in a colorful, slightly contemporary way. I’m seeing I like ‘happy’ things!

  771. Kim says:

    I love watercolors!

  772. Jen says:

    Mix of styles – photos, vintage & paintings/watercolor.

  773. Karen says:

    There is no one specific style that appeals to me. Macro photography is my latest craze.

  774. Monica says:

    What a great idea. You change with the seasons or if just bored. I love botanical prints thanks

  775. Jessica says:

    I love a mix of artwork but nothing too generic. Watercolor, photographs, geometric prints, anything that you look at and love every day!

  776. Teresa says:

    I’ve always leaned toward traditional, but as I get older I like to some more modern pieces, too.

  777. Mitsy says:

    I think I like different types, but I’ve noticed that I tend to be drawn to things that depict nature, that have flowing lines.

  778. Sara says:

    I love photography and maps.

  779. Taylor says:

    Oh I love a mix and would love to get these books even if I don’t win this give away! :)

  780. Michelle says:

    What a brilliant idea these books are! I love photography and illustration. But a mixture of many styles together is always really eye catching and interesting.

  781. Tracey says:

    I’m particularly drawn to abstract landscapes and abstracts in general. I love bold, bright colors in the basic abstracts, and in the landscape variety I favor soft grays with blues and greens. Pale aqua, and beautiful. Your prints are very nice and look wonderful above your mantle/hood.

  782. Ashley B says:

    I love photography!

  783. Diane says:

    I have been called an artaholic. Personally, I believe I simpky enjoy beauty and talent. Thank you for making this available to us. I love photography, but also watercolor, oil, & mixed media – I’ll admit to having trouble choosing one medium over another.

  787. laura j w says:

    I love watercolors and photographs. I do have a cute collection of vintage postcards and greeting cards and I try to display a couple. I don’t know if you have something securing your photos on the mantle, if not, they have these little rubber “feet” and you place them on the shelf near the bottom edge of your picture. We have several stained glass pieces at my work and after having one slide and fall we put these little feet everywhere and it keeps them from slipping. Love the little owl painting :)

  788. Christine jurusik says:

    Original oil paintings are my favorite. The colors are so much more vivid then any prints.

  789. denise says:

    I used to like traditional art but over the last few years I’ve become much more drawn to contemporary art. In our home we have a mix of traditional and contemporary art. Also, my mother has become quite good with watercolors so I have several paintings that she has done hanging in my house.

  790. Barbara says:

    I absolutely LOVE watercolors but my favorite art was made about 20 years ago by two of my favorite artists – my kids!

    Thanks for this opportunity, Kate!

  791. Cristina says:

    Definitely contemporary and eclectic. I do have some traditional art made by family members that I love and it’s fun to mix in with more modern decor.

  792. Mandy says:

    I love anything contemporary, mostly abstracts. I’m also a sucker for black pencil sketches / drawings

  800. Sonia O. says:

    Photography and watercolors! Love the mantel.

  801. Sasha says:

    I love watercolors, typography, vintage photographs, botanical prints. A shorter list might be what type of art do I NOT like, haha!

  802. Rachel says:

    I like a healthy mix of all three! But I especially love anything with animal motifs.

  803. Jen H says:

    I love watercolors! Usually they are soft looking..calming.

  804. Lindsey says:

    I love watercolors, abstract, nature….love the kitchen prints!

  805. Yolanda says:

    Wow, what a great idea! I love all kinds of art. I think my style is changing firm bold colors and styles to more fresh and natural, like the ones you chose for your kitchen mantel. I am looking for new art for my new house. Thanks so much!

  806. Julie says:

    My favorites are etchings, nature, and art that reminds me of places I have been.

  807. Bonnie thompson says:

    I love it all but am partial to photography

  815. Kendra says:

    I love watercolour and prints!!!!!

    A medley! But I do love watercolors or photographs of landscapes and flowers in particular! Beautiful giveaway! Thank you!

  822. Arin says:

    I love art displays that are a medley of styles and media, and preferably with pieces that have some kind of significance to the people who live in the home. I just love seeing a new friend’s home for the first time and getting to know them through the art on their walls.

    I’m particularly drawn to photographs and illustrations-a black and white or antiqued feel. Or else I really enjoy the soft and fluid abstracts I prints in coordinating colors/styles/images. How fun it would be to create galleries so the prints from these books! Oh I hope my name is drawn :-D

  826. Brenda a says:

    I am really into water colors and abstracts right now. I love this giveaway!

  852. Cathy says:

    Hi and Happy New Year!
    I like watercolours (though I don’t own any) but I’m mostly a medley. Have found as I get older my tastes have changed. So I’m at the stage of “almost anything goes”.
    Many thanks for including Canada in your prize rules.
    All the best,

  853. Katie says:

    I have an “eclectic” taste when it comes to artwork. Some days I’m drawn to photography, other days I love bright vibrant abstracts, and others I love more soothing watercolors. I think it’s fun to mix and match a little of everything!

  854. annie says:

    Watercolors are my fav

    Love the mantle!

  861. Deborah E says:

  862. Libby says:

    I have been loving letter press prints and chalkboard prints as of late.

  863. Melissa B says:

    Truly, I haven’t found a style of art that I don’t like. I usually use different styles in different rooms or rotate them out by the season. I love art!

  864. Sona says:

    Watercolor, photography and some abstracts, even a charcoal or two!!

  865. Lynda OL says:

  879. Carol says:

    I really like photography and prints – love when looking at art brings a cherished memory to mind.

  880. Pilbara Pink says:

    I love almost all art mediums but prefer pictures of the minutiae of life – tiny corners of a scene or a single shelf in a room rather than landscapes. One of my most treasured pieces is a painting of pebbles on a river bank. That’s all, just the pebbles. But oh, the detail! It is stunning. Love the concept of these books, what a genius idea!

  881. Nancy says:

    Wow I could really use a set of these books! I’m redecorating my home office and a wall of framed black & white prints would be perfect, but art books at museum shops are very pricey and anything I’ve run across at book sales or garage sales are in such bad shape they aren’t salvageable for framing.

  882. Sarah says:

    Those books are so cool and I ADORE the octopus print!! I really love a medley of artwork. I’m lucky that my mother is a painter (pastels) and my father is a B & W photographer. I regularly beg them for pieces, some of my favorites are my mother’s early planning pencil sketches. I also love finding unique art at thrift stores and collections from our travels.

  883. Patty K. says:

    I love vintage photography, pen & ink drawings, and anything floral

  884. Christina says:

    I would have to say I’m into the watercolors, I too gravitate to blues & greens! Love the owl!

  885. Lisa says:

    I love a medley of styles for artwork. The books look beautiful!
