Imagine the high pitched scream and multiple OMGs that came from my office the moment I noticed Shop Ten 25′s pillows in the premier issue of High Gloss Magazine! I have been counting down the days until HGM finally launched it’s premier issue and it was well worth the wait. This online magazine was founded and built by the design industry and blogging world’s most fabulous. Design, travel and fashion…what more does a girl need?
Of the 20 pillows that made the “Roll Call”, Shop Ten 25 had five pieces that made the grade! If you haven’t had the chance to check out High Gloss’ very first issue, then head on over to the site and take a peek! And make sure to check out pages 34-35!
Today I wanted to share how creating custom art from an existing piece is easy and affordable. I have worked with artist Chris Judy on commissioned pieces as well as recreations of his existing works. You can see more details on his latest commissioned piece for one of my clients HERE & HERE.
Let It Be is one of my absolute favorite pieces from Chris’ collection and it also happens to be the one most of my clients gravitate towards too. Most of my clients are not looking to make an investment in commissioned art but I think I have found a way to fill their need for “custom art” without breaking the budget. Chris is able to take a piece from existing collection, digitally change the colors and create a piece that is custom for the client. Each piece can be printed on canvas or archival paper and the sizes are made to fit the specified space.
Here is the original Let It Be
Here is the first custom piece we worked on. The client wanted to bring in a warm turquoise with pops of plum and lime green.
And a few images of it in the actually room it was customized for.
I am working on another bedroom in need of oversized art and turned to Chris for options. This guest bedroom has oversized furniture and the teal, gold and ivory bedding look beautiful with the Venetian plaster and warm wood touches. The room’s only blank wall is in need of a piece with rich color, bold scale and a contemporary feel. We once again decided to work with Let It Be.
Here is the final draft, I can’t wait to see what my client thinks of the custom look.
Today I am going to keep it short, sweet & simple. I have loved the shape of the quatrefoil for a quite sometime now and wanted to post a few of my favorite images with the beautiful shape. I love the shape so much that it has become a part of my soon to launch newly designed website and blog. Come back tomorrow for a sneak peek!
Here are a few fabulous facts about the quatrefoil:
-In Christianity, each of the leaves of the quatrefoil have symbolized the four evangelists of the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
-In Native American culture, the four leaves of the quatrefoil are believed to symbolize the four ends of the earth. This represents Native American prayers to the North, South, East, and West.
-According to the Seattle First Baptist Church, the quatrefoil is an ancient symbol of good luck.
-Since it is easy to divide a quatrefoil into equal portions or into other shapes, it has also come to symbolize harmony, symmetry, and proportion.
