This week we freshened up our foyer with some budget-friendly artwork that is oh so pretty! My dear friend, Andrea, painted each one and I think they have found their perfect home in our entry way.
This week has gotten off to such a good start for our family. For the last two years Charlie has always started back to school just after Labor Day. Over the weekend I decided that this week we would slowly ease back into our homeschooling routine. For many months it has felt like a never-ending weekend. I think we were all craving the structure that a school year brings. I always find that I’m much more productive around the house as well during the school year.
Just yesterday, I was finally able to give our staircase a fresh coat of paint and to snap a few photos of my new artwork in our foyer. I’ve been meaning to get around to sharing the prints for months. These prints are extra special because they were painted by my sweet friend, Andrea. Andrea has a blog at Pine and Prospect Home. We met a number of years ago on Instagram and quickly became friends. She has beautiful taste and also has a talent for painting. She recently started selling her work on her blog and I couldn’t be happier for her! I love that she has made her paintings into prints that are budget-friendly artwork for your home.
All of her paintings are beautiful, friends. I wish I had an ounce of her talent. I especially loved these – a foggy meadow and vineyard setting. Of course, I had to get a couple for my own home. She offers them as a digital download and I had mine printed via Mpix. I almost hung them in my office but later decided that above the foyer table was the perfect place for them. I love the pop of color that they bring to this space. They’re in a room where they can be easily seen and enjoyed when you come into our home.
I’ve always gravitated towards landscape paintings. I love that she uses several shades of green and blue in a lot of her work. Those two colors will always be favorites of mine, as many of you know.
This fall I’m hoping to get family photos hung on the wall of the staircase. I’ve always wanted to keep our foyer neat and clutter-free, without it feeling too stark. Artwork and photos help give the room character and color. Also, here’s a little close up of the vintage stool that I purchased while in Kentucky a few weeks ago. I shared a few of my antique finds in my stories on Instagram. I’m hoping to write a post soon on the things that I like to look for when antiquing and thrift shopping.
If you’d like to look at more of Andrea’s paintings, you can find all of her artwork on her blog here. You’ll love her charming home and beautiful style. Every square inch is gorgeous!
I hope you all have a wonderful week and I hope to be back here later this week with a few photos from our recent trip to one of my favorite small towns, Franklin, TN. Until then, happy decorating!
