Artsy Fartsy

Enjoy some decorspiration, courtesy of the interwebs. This is terribew, but I didn't make note of where some of these images came from because I was just intending to keep them in a file for my damn self. If they're yours, please let me know and I'll give credit where credit is due!!

I have been wanting to up my art factor throughout the casa. The following all have ehh-heh-xxxx-cellent artwork. I intend to either duplicate or visit etsy to find a reasonable facsimile of some.

Easy peasy graphic abstract that I may try. Love the yellow and black one the mostest.

Let's just get one thing straight - I LOVE the idea of a supah dupah giant photograph framed in a big ole scrolly frame. I puff-daddy heart this one from Desire to Inspire.

Calgon, take me away. I saw a similar look to this in a gallery in Laguna Beach (Todd Kenyon from Pure Laguna Beach, if you MUST know - see sample below) :

His work is gorgeous and dreamy and is actually oil on canvas, but I thought I could recreate it by enlarging a photo to canvas. Alas, I have not been very successful with my photos, but haven't given up hope yet! Want one for the bedroom. Aaaahhhhh.........

I have also been coming across a lot of giant horse prints that I love. I just love the idea of this really rugged masculine piece of art with the very feminine room that it inhabits.
How can you go wrong with a giant Pollock-inspired painting, Eames chairs, and an artichoke chandelier? You can't.
Haunting artwork. Toloves.

Also, I just bought this shower curtain from CB2 for the boyz in the hood's room:
I am going to duplicate it on large canvas for one wall, and haven't decided yet whether to actually use the shower curtain as shower curtain, or cut it in half and use it as regular curtains. This is a similarly-inspired line drawrings that I lurve.

I believe this is a Marimekko from Desire to Inspire.

So in conclusion, to sum things up, I really feel, in short, to recap it slightly in a clearer version, in the words of David Cassidy in fact, while he was still with the Partridge family, "Art, I think I love you."

Thank you, Four Weddings and A Funeral IMDB page, for that inspiring summation.
