Art Walls, Part 29 + Looking for Art

Thanks so much for all the nice comments and all the pins (and repins!) of my dining room art wall last week. That reminded me of all the new art walls I’ve come across in the past couple of months so let’s take a look, shall we?

I’m sure you’ve already seen this room all over the place but I just have to congratulate Emily Henderson on the really fantastic studio she designed for Oh Joy. The whole space is great but this wall is my favorite part. Girlfriend can hang an art wall! Here’s another view:

I’d be happy just looking at this all day but there are a few more really successful walls I want to share.

Off the topic, I love this sconce:

Anyone know the source?

And while we’re on the topic of art….. I have a confession. You know how much I love it – viewing it, studying it, reading about it, sourcing it, creating it – but I have empty walls all over the place in my house just waiting for the perfect piece of art.

The worst is my family room mantel which currently looks like this:

I know. Pathetic. I haven’t been happy with anything I’ve put there so far. So I finally just stripped the whole thing while I figure out what to hang once and for all. This is one of those I’ll-know-it-when-I-see-it situations. So I’m on the hunt.

And not too far from that is this spot in the kitchen:

Here I’m pretty sure I want some sort of a fun print and I’m considering ordering either this:

or this:

I found these on etsy here and here. What do you think?

Art Walls, Part 28 (It’s Roundup Time Again!)

You may have thought you had seen the last of my Art Walls posts after I exhausted my files. But posting less frequently = a whole slew of new ones. So let’s get to it, shall we?

These are mainly of the mixed media/mixed frames variety (my favorite)…..

This is an oldie but a goodie that I can’t believe I haven’t posted before (or at least I don’t remember if I have!):

This would be cute in a child’s room or playroom:

And here’s another old favorite. You remember India Hicks’ home and that famous pink couch, right?

Are we over wash tape yet? I think I’m pretty close but it’s still a good option if you want something temporary and easy to switch out like for an inspiration board:

Lastly, this isn’t much of an art wall but I just love the whole space (even the gnome which I should be over):

By the way, since Google Reader died I’ve been trying out different options like Feedly and have run into a lot of  bugs and glitches. Bloglovin’ seems to be working best for me. What are you all using? If you’d like to follow FTRB through Bloglovin’ click here.

Art Wall, Part 27

I’m intrigued by the dotted(?) wallpaper on this art wall. Imagine it without. It would still be a nice, balanced art wall but that paper really adds an extra layer of interest, don’t you think?

I’m running out the door with a fully stuffed car to start installing my Room Service room. Seriously, there’s barely enough room for me in there! Thanks to everyone I spoke with yesterday who offered help and support. I’m lucky to have such good friends and loyal readers!

Art Wall, Part 25 (In My Dream Paris Apartment)

FROM THE RIGHT BANK | www.fromtherightbank.com

What I like best about this art wall is that it fills out the entire wall, working around the radiator, fireplace and door. (I would even add something behind the chair.) And while we’re here, look at those oh-so-French herringbone floors and windows. That’s because this apartment is in this 17th century building in Paris:

Pretty much my dream apartment. Yup. Someday. You can see a few other rooms in this apartment here.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. See you Monday.
