I’m looking to expand my art collection at home and need to fill in a few gaps to make the gallery wall of my dreams. So I’m putting the call out there, what are your favorite Etsy stores or online shops to source chic, inexpensive artwork? Do share!
Killing some time before the Cynthia Rowley event on Wednesday night, I took a window-shopping stroll down Newbury St. The window at Jack Wills caught my eye — the clothes were cute, but the styling got me inside. I had one of those “how did I not know about this store?” moments as soon as I entered; it was preppy paradise. On make-up packaging, umbrellas, jewelry, bathing suits — their signature navy and pink stripe was everywhere. Including on the walls behind a stellar art gallery going up the three-story staircase in the center of the store. Let’s just say – I kind of want to move in.
After making a pink and navy striped purchase I snagged their catalog and poured over it at home. Their home goods also have that signature ivy-leaguer-look — it makes me wish I had a dorm room to decorate again!
I was holding off on this post because I wanted to finish a little project I’ve been working on, but it seems that silhouettes are the rage and I don’t want to be behind the curve! Apartment Therapy posted DIY Silhouette instructions last month, and followed up last week with some more black and white inspiration. I’ve seen them popping up all over etsy; showing up on dinnerware, and nestled in gallery-style photo arrangements.
I originally started an embroidery project to create a silhouette pillow, but after seeing them framed for wall display, I may decide to stretch my finished product over a canvas, or use an emroidery hoop as a frame!
Here’s my (seemingly never ending) work in progress:
And some of my inspiration for the project:
I love gallery style walls of art in homes. While I’ve faced little difficulty in growing my collection of art, displaying it in a meaningful composition can be a challenge, especially when that collection is constantly growing and evolving.
Wes and Kayla from ApartmentTherapy just posted a great “How-To” on hanging art in a group that can grow. I’m anxiously awaiting until my personal collection is as robust and well-curated as these displays below:
