Show me your art wall!

An earlier post today on displaying art made me think of something. It’s nice seeing art in the styled homes of our favorite magazines because that’s where we go to pick up tips, but how do *you* display your art, and are you willing to share your wall/s with other decor8 readers? If so, please email your art wall to me at decor8blog {at} yahoo {dot} com with a link to your blog/website, along with your name and I just may post it right here sometime this week. So go ahead… It’s time to show and tell. :)

Here’s a snapshot of Erin’s art wall, isn’t it cool? For a guide to all the art in this photo, click here. Thanks Erin for the tip! I spotted an Ashley Goldberg there already… I love that girl!

Sarah Kaye Representation

I’m always obsessing over photography, particularly interiors, food, fashion, and still life, which is why I have such a massive collection of magazines. Being a very visual person like so many of you, I find a story in every photo, something there that just may inspire me, and it’s not always what’s shown in the photo that stirs my creativity, but what’s not shown. A certain feeling. Or even beyond that, because when I look at an image, I often edit it in my mind, adding in or subtracting parts until it looks right to me.

Recently I hit the motherload of imagery on the Sarah Kaye Representation website. Sheesh, Kaye represents a slew of a-m-a-z-i-n-g talent, one being photographer Chris Everard, who you’ll frequently find in Living Etc magazine (that’s how I learned of Chris). Once you click on Kaye’s website and start viewing the body of work there, like Joanna Henderson, Sandra Lane… You will indeed slip down the rabbit’s hole, never to return again. It’s amazing. Inspirational. Dreamy. Go ahead click here. All I can say is bye bye work day… :)
