NOW DECORATING || 5 Affordable Art Sources

the now affordable art

1. “Solid Kiss” by Oliver Gal One Kings Lane  
2. “Black Cherries” by Georgiana Paraschiv Society 6  
3. “Nathalie” by Gia Coppola Tappan Collective 
4. “Beverly II Print” by The Aestate 
5. “Well Read” by Leigh Viner Etsy

Now that I am on a decorating binge, I need some art. Actually, “need” is an understatement. I’ve talked about my phobia of hanging art before, but if you haven’t heard, I am so weird about committing,  that I just don’t buy anything and our walls embarrassingly barren. But no more! It’s time to buy, buy, buy! Filling up our walls won’t be cheap, however, I’ve bookmarked tons of fabulous and reasonable artists and  sources so we won’t break the bank on cool, original art.

Here are a few more on my radar:

Gaby Burger {also on much talent}
Gray Malin
Max Wanger Print Shop
20 x 200
Joel Penkman
3 Fish Studios

What are your favorite sources for art?

NOW DECORATING || Breakfast Nook / Dining Room Updates

The Now Stylebook Breakfast NookFactory Light || Marais Chair || Wishbone Chair

We are in the middle of a major home makeover and I wanted to share some updates and possibly get feedback/ideas from y’all on what we’ve done so far! Currently, I am working on our breakfast nook, den, living/dining rooms. I know, I know…I should work on one space at a time, but it’s not like I live in a mansion and I am determined to have the house done by the summer so I have to multitask.

Anyway, so far the breakfast nook is pretty bare as we only have an Ikea table, an antique bench and some chalkboard paint in there now. I think I’d like to keep the chalkboard walls but maybe add a pop of blue by placing blue and white plates on the wall behind the bench. We obviously need new chairs and I love the options above but will the Marais chairs and factory light make it too industrial? Perhaps I should do the ghost or wishbone chairs instead?? And I can’t even begin to think about a rug for this tiny space. Keep reading to see our dining room updates Continue reading

NOW WANTING || Cole & Son Hummingbird Wallpaper

While stalking Style Me Pretty Living the other day, I came across Shea McGee’s beautiful nursery with the most beautiful wallpaper I had ever seen, Cole and Son’s, “Hummingbird”. Within a few weeks, I noticed the wall covering in Kelly Moore’s breakfast nook and the fabric version used in the dining room of Bailey Quinn’s latest project. It’s like it was begging me to notice it! Now, I’m pretty sure I need this print..either in fabric or wall paper form.. to be in my house.  It is fresh yet super romantic and the green background color is absolute perfection! The I have been wanting to mix more traditional pieces and accents into my home and I’m thinking this would look amazing on a bench {or even the walls} in the breakfast nook or on these chairs.

Aren’t you in love??

Find the wallpaper here or here {identical, but less $} and the fabric here
