Choosing Art: Think Variety!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th!

It was a long weekend of celebrations for the Rardon family! We had an all-American grill out followed by fireworks on the 4th. We celebrated Phil’s birthday on Saturday with yet another grill out and fireworks! We ended the weekend on Sunday with a day of naps and movies (much needed R&R). And last night we celebrated our 2nd anniversary with Runza and a rented movie. Classy – I know. Last year we did an overnight getaway for our first anniversary. So, we said that’s either the difference between having your first anniversary on the weekend, and your second anniversary on a Monday – OR just the difference between your first and second anniversary.

Today, we’re going to talk artwork.

And it’s all about variety!

When choosing artwork, add interest by choosing different mediums, shapes, and sizes.

For example: Paintings, Photography, Metal, Wood, Circles, Rectangles, Big & Small.

I put together a few examples of art collections that exhibit variety, but create a cohesive look.

Unsaturated Industrial

Monochromatic Industrial

Clock / Framed Prints / Nailhead Mirror / Canvas / Porthole Mirrors

That last collection was looking much too cold – so I just had to add in that gorgeous, slender giraffe!  Isn’t she a beauty?
