Artsy Walls: Laura from Orange Beautiful

More art on walls to share today, this time it’s the space of fellow blogger, Laura from the Orange Beautiful blog. Thank you for taking the time to email me Laura, and to go the extra mile by posting about it on your own blog to inspire your readers. It’s great to see everyone sharing ideas and enjoying the unique, personal space that they call home.

“Here is my favorite art wall, that contains (among other things) a screenprint purchased in Tokyo, silhouettes of me and my husband, a picture from a photo booth taken in France (reminds me of Amelie!) and an original painting my sister-in-law gave us. All the frames are from either Ikea or Target” – Laura.

Artsy Walls: Creative Thursday + Outi Harma

Marisa from Creative Thursday sent over a photo of her artsy walls that are bright and full of character. Some of what you see here is from LA-artist Outi Harma, a lady with an eye for bold, saturated colors that are whimsical, festive, and if you gaze long enough, can strike a somewhat emotional chord. Many of her works are available in her Etsy store, which I’m sure you’ll want to visit after this sneak peek… Aren’t her girls beautiful?



Psst: Here’s a print of the original from Outi’s new store that Marisa has in her home, shown above.

Update: To learn more about the other artists shown in Marisa’s space above, click here for their names and links. Thanks, Marisa!

Artsy Walls: Rate This Room!

decor8 reader Jet G. sent in a pic of his newly designed bedroom, with a very fresh, simple approach to displaying the things he loves. This wall is a great example of a clean, well-edited space – and that art doesn’t always need to be displayed on the wall – it can extend down to a shelf, leaned against the wall as this picture shows. And don’t you love the little starfish and the white orb lamp?


The grouping of objects is serene and uncomplicated, and the touch of the ocean is just great! Jet said that you can actually Rate His Room over on HGTV.com, so if you’d be so kind to cast your vote, click here. And Jet… That bedroom of yours is so chic as is, but when I looked down and spotted that very unexpected Zebra rug — All I can say is bonus points to you for going there because most wouldn’t dare. Mega gold stars for you!


Thanks for writing in, Jet!

Artsy Walls: Phara from Your Mirror Or Mine

Phara from the blog, Your Mirror Or Mine, would like to share a wall in her living room that she’s fond of. This display reminds me of a clock face, each picture a number around the mirror in the center. I like to see a creative grouping like this, and how it can make each piece so much more interesting when some thought it given to the arrangement.

Here’s another nice arrangement she has in her home. I know we should be looking at the walls here, but I can’t take my eyes off of these black chairs. Drool.


Thanks, Phara!
