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.
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.
If you’d like to get your hands on a set of these art books, three sets of all three books are up for grabs today. Simply leave a comment sharing your favorite kind of art to be eligible. Do you prefer photography, prints, paintings, abstracts or landscapes, or a medley?
Three winners chosen at random, giveaway ends Friday, January 10, 2014 at midnight and subject to this site’s Official Rules of Entry. Good luck!
