Artsy Walls: Emily from Orange Beautiful

More clever displays to share, this time it’s the space of the OTHER half of the Orange Beautiful blog, Laura’s partner in crime, Emily. I blogged about Laura’s walls yesterday, so it’s Emily’s turn today — and it’s only fair because Orange Beautiful is a collaborative blog. Isn’t this a great arrangement? (click to enlarge)

“This art wall includes, among other things, screen-printed band posters (purchased at last year’s Intonation Festival); pen&ink drawings and digital prints by Jw; a beautiful Polaroid transfer piece by my lovely friend, B; a watercolor of a crane that I did when I was 15; woodblock prints by Lys(Beth) of hundredsofsparrows fame; and a colored pencil drawing I did in high school, based off of the stained glass window in the front door of Mr. Belvidere’s house… That’s right: the TV show.” – Emily

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: 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!
