Art Inspired

Can anything make a home feel more unique or personal that a hand-picked piece of art?  A painting you love can turn a (literally) blank slate into an extension of yourself.  Want a place to feel inspiring, or calming, or even bouncing off the walls energetic? Picking the right canvas can make all the difference.

Invaluable.com, a vast auction site, offers thousands of paintings up for sale daily. It's a wonderful place to broaden your design horizons and gain some inspiration.  

I've recently been playing around with what I'd like to do in my crafting/writing/office space.  It's hard to nail down what I want...I just can't pick...every time I see something I like, my mind completely changes on how I want the room to be. So, naturally, I daydream.  I browsed around Invaluable.com the other day, wanting to spark some direction, & happened upon this pretty, vintage-feeling, little bit country, fun, vibrant piece.  I really think it's stunning & it just makes me smile, & imagine that I'm in a field of wildflowers.  With no allergies, just enjoying myself. :)

And what to do when you find a beauty like this?  Plan an entire room around it!  It tickles my fancy to play around with ideas, mixing & matching styles to come up with something that I love.  I really looove these inspirations.  Triple 'O' cause that's how much I dig them! 

I've spent the last several days pawning & pining for all of these lovelies.  They're absolutely inspiring me to get going with my craft room/office.  I adore the mix of romantic artwork, whimsical touches, natural wood & chippy paint.  I am a fan of chippy paint.  And those Pottery Barn lights...ooh, I want them right. now. In every room in the house.  I'm also thinking that gorgeous rolling cart & statement shelving would be so perfect for all of my supplies, books & more.  The personalized Paper Source notebook & adorable elephant add a playful element that I want to have in each space I create.  Everything's so fun!   

Follow Home Made Austin's board Art Inspired on Pinterest.

These pieces are all on my 'want' list & I have promptly created a pinterest board just for them...check it out above.  I'll also be adding bits of inspiration whenever I find them, so look often.   And don't forget to follow my other boards while you're there.  I spend entirely too much time pinning, so there are always new ideas popping up on my boards!
