New artwork brings vibrancy to the living room

Remember this kaleidoscopic art I bought at Z Gallerie recently?


I am so excited to have it hung in our living room!


Doesn't it work so much better than either of these two options I considered?



My favorite colors are shades of blue, and this painting has so many various blues, including my beloved turquoise.  Plus there's white, red, yellow, green, purple, gray, black and more.  The vivid hues really wake up the living room, and will provide me with the ability to accessorize the room with all kinds of different colors.

 

When we first moved here almost four years ago, I was all about a coastal look of soft blues and browns.  Although I still like that look, over time I have longed more and more for color and life, especially because our house is very shaded and the living room room can be fairly dark.  Yes, the large black leather sectional also accentuates the darkness, but I'm stuck with it!

The new art may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'm in love with it, and The Mr. likes it too.  The Teen gave it the thumbs-down, but he doesn't "get" abstract, so oh well.

The best part of all this?  Now that the main art piece for the room is set, I can more forward with the rest of the room.  I'm looking forward to it!!!

  2. Love it! And love that it's giving you the freedom to add more colour. I've been the same, stuck in ruts that are self-created because I've limited pallets in certain rooms so I can definitely relate!

    Can't wait to see what you do to this room because it's already gorgeous x

  3. I had a request for the paint color of our living room. It's actually the color we have in most all of our public rooms in the house. It's called Ashley Gray by Benjamin Moore. For me, it was the perfect gray/taupe that can work with both cool and warm colors, and gives just enough color while still being neutral.
