Nautical Decor Collection

By the Sea, by the Beautiful Sea!

Oh, the smell of the sea and ocean mist as it caresses your face, flows through your hair, and leaves the memory of maritime wherever you go. People are fascinated with all things Nautical as well they should be! It’s calm, soothing, and therapeutic. You can almost feel the grains of sand sink down with the pressure of your body, as you walk quietly along the shoreline. Can you hear the waves gently crashing up against the waterfront?

It’s a great family adventure, or it can be a solitary escape from the rest of the world. The versatility of the Ocean is as vast as the aquatic life that lives within it. Summer time is almost here, and one of the best ways to celebrate is to go to the beach!

But, maybe you’re strapped for cash, simply can’t get away, or the nearest beach is over 1,000 miles too far away! Oh, we feel you! It’s okay, don’t panic! We’ve got just the thing to soothe your oceanic craving! We are proud to introduce our Nautical Decor Collection!

Dive into the deep blue seas, by diving deep into this sea inspired collection! We’ve got everything you could need, minus the arm floaties.

Wild Western Collection

Welcome to the Wild-Wild-Western Collection!

 The Old West! The place of cowboys, indians, and tumbleweeds! Get out your boots with the  fur spurs folks, ‘cause it’s about to be a showdown! Take 10 paces and get ready to draw! Let’s be a little more creative here though, instead of drawing guns let me draw you a mental picture aided by actual pictures.

 

Western art has many inspirations, you’ll know this if you’ve ever traveled out to The Old West! Many signature elements of western art are turquoise, and edgy patterns, they’re contrasted with oranges, reds, and beige’s. Of course some of the main subjects in the Western Style are the famous Cowboys, and Indians (Native Americans is more accurate). Many of the images seen are of significant battles for territory, and resources. There are several different ways in which these subjects are portrayed, and it’s all up to the viewers’ interpretation.

 

 

The History of the West:

So, before we climb into the Western Decor Wagon let us take a moment to appreciate the birth of the West. The expansion of the west started with an idea that spread throughout the Colonies in the 19th Century. John O’Sullivan, who was a Newspaper editor at the time, coined a term that represented a common idea. This term was: Manifest Destiny. The idea at the time was that it was our right as Americans to expand the colonies by moving…West. There was a sense of adventure, excitement, and even religious undertones. The idea evolved from person to person, some believed that it was a God given right, and whatever lay out in the wild west it was their duty to convert and promote God’s word. Others believed it was more of a duty to our country, and would also show that we were becoming more stabilized. It was a means of showing America’s progress. To keep a long story short and not take up too much time, we did expand and The West is History! (The rest is history! Get it?) Hahah!

So read on and we’ll give you the scoop on how to best Decorate Your Space for this Fall Season!

Pick your Date/Time:

Plan a day to Decorate! Set a day on your calendar that you can devote enough time to let your creativity flourish throughout your space. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, your life is hectic, we know! Nearly everyone has a schedule, a job, something that takes up the majority of their time throughout the day. So, it’s easy to let decorating your space slide out the window, instead of letting that creativity go by the wayside, plan ahead! Pick a date this month that you know you can keep clear. Devote an entire day to just letting your creativity blossom. We’re sure this is something that’s been on your mind since summer started to sizzle out. So, instead of just dwelling on what you’d like to achieve in your mind, give yourself the time to get it out. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish once you set aside the time to take on the task!

Choose a Theme/Color Set:

It’s important to remember what color scheme you’re going with this season. You can keep it in the Pumpkin Spice area, or you can travel to more of the majestic Maple! This is all your choice! Remember to keep in mind that colors evoke emotions, they can bring excitement into the air like with red and other vibrant colors. Or your color palette can create a calm soothing feeling, such as using neutrals and browns. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something that you’re comfortable with. Yes, it’s only for a season, but it should be something that makes you feel best. There are all sorts of color schemes you can work with. Take a look at a few of these to gain some inspiration:

      

  Use References-But Let YOUR Creative style be the biggest influence:

Sometimes it’s hard to come up with the right idea. As soon as you feel like you’ve gotten it right, something makes you change your mind and you scrap the idea completely. It’s no problem, these things happen to the best of us! Take a minute to breathe, you’re just creating a stylish space. There’s no pressure, this is all fun! If you’ve got some inspiring magazines laying around take a look through them. Get inspired by anything! If you’ve got a favorite Fall outfit or scarf, use that to inspire you! Everything can be an inspiration, so try not to stress out if something isn’t quite feeling like you wanted it to in the beginning. Just remember that this is YOUR style, this is your creative flow, and don’t let it be squandered by doubt.

Featured Artist: Janet Kruskamp

Since Janet was old enough to hold a crayon, she has known that she would become an artist. From Impressionism to Realism, Janet has traveled down many roads of discovery, finding inspiration in every style, medium, and subject matter. Being an artist is not just what she does, it is who she is.

Q: What inspires you?
A: On a personal level, I have always looked for beauty in commonplace scenes or objects, as can be seen in my still life imagery. Plato said, “It is beauty I seek, not beautiful things.”

Q: What do you enjoy doing when you are not creating art?
A: Tending to my rose gardens and fern garden. I guess that is creating too, isn’t it?

Q: Are there current art trends that you love or hate?
A: For me, the current art trends of today are sometimes off the scale of art. Although I am a traditionalist and favor realism in some form, I can appreciate some of the current trends in art, and I enjoy seeing good abstract art.

Q: Whose art can we find displayed in your home?
A: Well, of course there is a surplus of Kruskamp art in every room on every wall! I do have a litho by Norman Rockwell (of course!) and a signed drawing of Prince Valiant by Hal Foster. These two artists were my first idols as a small child.

I also have displayed some very old prints, including The Song of the Lark by Jules Breton, Dinner for Threshers by Grant Wood and Shepherd’s Call.

Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring artists?
A: Start with a good teacher who teaches BASICS and who teaches from LIFE! It is very true that everything you need to know about color, value, and composition is all there in a still life. And of course, paint everyday! The more you practice at anything the better you become.

Q: How do you feel about dogs playing poker?
A: I love the painting! It is clever, creative and humorous and also shows a great deal of talent. As far as the dogs go, I choose the one with the best hand!
