Some people think it’s not practical to wallpaper a bathroom, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, applying wallpaper is easier than painting on to bare plaster and it’s certainly far less arduous than retiling. 

Give it a try.

Art Lovers, Unite

One question that we get a lot these days is, "when did you decide to start selling artwork?" Well, we decided to sit down and really answer that question for you!

The very short answer is, we have always fancied ourselves art lovers and collectors, and the passion to not only find unique artists and styles, but to share them with our clients is really what drove us. In general, we really feel that Arizona and specifically, the Phoenix area, has an untapped market of local art and artists, just waiting to be featured!

Additionally, we are finding that original art in general is something that is always desired by our clients. As we looked for pieces for our clients, we were surprised that what is represented in the marketplace has a very large margin of median-priced artwork that is not available! So we decided that this was an area we wanted to dive into - unique and amazing pieces at attainable prices.

Because we feel that art and interior design pair so well together, we wanted to feature a couple of our pieces and talk a little bit about how you could work each one into your overall design ideas and space plan! We're taking each one and creating a mood board for a certain space of the home. See below:

Arizona Modern

This piece, called Horizon, was completed by a local Phoenix artist. The piece itself is perfect for any client looking to bring the Arizona culture into their space. We love the way that the bright colors exemplify the traditional colors of the desert but in a modern, updated way. 

This piece would be the perfect addition to a modern space seeking a bold pop of color. We'd pair it with modern decor and accessories with pops of color but neutral tones overall! That way this piece could really shine and be a focal point for the space. Try it over a fireplace or in a walkway that is easily seen!

Or, as we've styled it above, we love the idea of this piece in an office space. Pair some mid-century modern elements and bold colors together and this piece really comes to life. We love the way that the teal and yellow rug comes together to create harmony and bring out the bold tones of the piece. The retro design concept really comes together!

Modern Portraiture

This piece is one of our favorites. Called Queenie 500, she is a total show stopper that will attract any eye from the minute they walk in your home. Not only do the bright and bold colors make for a fun addition to any space, we love anything that makes people ask questions... A total conversation starter is never something that we refuse!

We see this piece being perfect in a modern yet glamorous dining room. We would pair this piece with sleek and modern furniture, and bold geometric prints. Because of the stripes and patterns in both the background and foreground of the piece, we think a nice linear hexagon or trellis pattern would be the perfect compliment to the piece! This is a perfect example of how we don't think that the interior design has to match the art piece, but they can complement one another nicely in tone, style or color! For example, we love how the modern lines and combination of navy velvet and brass brings out the bright colors in the art.

Glam Geometric

This piece, created by the wonderful Angie Crabtree, is a showstopping, modern art piece that adds impact to any space, bright or monochromatic. We love how the close up of the diamond painting turns very graphic and bold when studied - so we decided to style a bold and graphic living room to go with it!

Because it's a very glamorous piece of artwork, our design scheme for this space involves tons of texture and movement, with pops of black and white for high contrast and style. We loved the way that the recurring diamond pattern in this moodboard reflects the geometric shapes in the painting, and the way that the mirrored textures reflect light, much like a diamond would!

 Of course, this space has a slightly feminine edge, but we think that with less mirrored texture and more pops of geometric and black and white, it could be transformed into a space that is completely gender neutral!
