We’re entering the home stretch of the One Room Challenge and truth be told, this past week wasn’t my most productive. In fairness, I was vacationing on the Cape so I’m going to cut myself a little slack and work extra hard these last two weeks to finish strong. If you’re new to this series, start at Week One to get caught up to speed.
As I mentioned last week, my goal was to expand my art collection. I have a gallery wall planned for the space and 13ft walls to fill!
The one thing I did accomplish is commissioning a quote from a calligrapher that I intend to frame. My inspiration came from one of my design idols, Anna Spiro. Check out her framed Virginia Woolf quote on the beautiful tablescape below.
There have been a few pieces that have caught my eye but I haven’t pulled the trigger quite yet. This Lulu DK print (did you catch my Style Snapshot interview with her last week?) from yesterday’s One King’s Lane sale has been nagging at me. Should I cave and snap it up?
And this abstract by Tracey Kafka reminds me of a Rothko so of course I’m in love.
That’s all I’ve got this week, the promise of a beautifully written quote and some pieces that have me reaching for my wallet. I have to admit I’m getting a bit nervous as we get closer to the reveal. Art is so personal. We love the quirky pieces we’ve collected, but I hope you will too! Fingers crossed…
Paint, paint, paint!
