Black + White Art

June 25th, 2015

I’m not alone in my love of a black and white art gallery wall, whether it’s a display of black and white photography or a collection of art prints, the medley is so sophisticated and never goes out of style.

I was shopping Etsy this week as I often do for new art prints for the living room, I’ll be combining a few black and white illustrations, abstracts, and watercolors. I channeled my inner artist last year and created my own DIY botanical which I’m still loving framed in the same spot. 

I adore Nina’s black and white art gallery wall, it is so striking above the dark sofa, the monochromatic palette continues throughout this space.

Etsy, Society6, and Minted are three sources I often shop to support independent artists and I always find something to love to add to my growing collection. Apartment Therapy rounded up a great list of sources for purchasing affordable art, it’s worth a read.

Art is completely subjective, we all have pieces that speak to us and that’s the best way to choose art, it should be a reflection of your personality and taste. Here are a dozen of my new favorites in black and white. black and white art prints

Have you arranged a black and white gallery in your home, photographs or art prints?

Counter Stool Hunt

June 23rd, 2015

I’ve just completed my search for two counter stools for the kitchen remodel in Las Vegas, it was more difficult than I thought, there were so many considerations! Should they have a back or be backless? Should they swivel? Should they be wood or metal, upholstered or not… what color if so? It took me hours to finally settle on two that would look right in the space.

In my research I came across several favorites, at first I was thinking just a basic metal stool, these work in any style kitchen from farmhouse to industrial like this.

You can’t go wrong with wood counter stools, they add warmth to a light or all white kitchen. How beautiful are these modern shapely counter stools and those Arteriors pendants are ridiculously cool too.

Then I thought perhaps a pair with a contemporary shape?
