Art at Home
On February 22, the Nate Berkus Show will air a segment that features a home tour I did of my Pennsylvania home. I can’t wait to share it with you and hope you tune in.
I showed Nate lots of my weird DIY art ideas in the home and I thought I’d show you some other pieces I have scattered around the house. This landscape painting, for example, was just $5 from a local flea market. I just loved the primary colors used in this painting: very bright, modern and fun.
Lots of black and white framed photos throughout the house. Back in 2001, when my book CONSCIOUS STYLE HOME was published, we still shot photos on film. That meant all the film had to be printed on high quality paper to be used for laying out the book. Man, times have changed with digital!
But that also means I have piles of artwork from the shoot. So, I’ve framed a bunch and have them in both of my homes.
Love this portrait of Nelson Mandela. A gift from the very talented photographer Kwaku Alston. I have this in my office.
An unusual pen and ink drawing of an elephant I found at the flea market. Was something like $10 and I used an inexpensive Ikea frame to frame it up.
And artwork by my nephew that I had blown up at a copy shop into large pieces of “modern” art. This is what I showed Nate on the show… so easy to do and it makes any artwork from a child into gallery worth masterpieces.
