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.

Color Curation: Lucky Lucite Green

Lucky Lucky Lucite Green

Curse the groundhog that saw his shadow this year, what bad luck! As if it wasn’t hard enough on the North East, now the rest of us have to endure six more weeks of this awful thing called Winter with them. Alas, we’ll get through this, as we really have no choice. But, don’t get the Winter Weepies because, we’re here to help cheer you up and get you out of that Winter Slump. Whether you’re snow locked, or braving the elements we’re here to remind you that there is some luck coming your way. And it’s called Lucite Green!

With Spring comes revival. All those dead plants seem to rise up from the grave and stretch. I’m sure you may even have some friends that probably go into hibernation until it’s all over. There’s nothing like seeing those first seedlings sprouting from the earth. Your lucky day is coming, it will be here soon so don’t fret there’s still hope!

Pantone has listed Lucite Green one of The Colors of Spring: 2015. What is Pantone? For those of you unfamiliar with it, we’ll give you the scoop! Pantone is the utmost authority on color matching and management. You’re probably skeptical, as in who’s to say what color is what, but take a deep breath. Pantone has solved many communication errors over the years, and is trusted across the art and graphics community. They are completely legit, and have been around since the 1960’s, they even have their own institute.

Lucite Green is described by Pantone here:

“Generally not thought of as a fashion color, though it does come back from time to time, PANTONE 14-5714 Lucite Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent.”

This cool green color is perfect for the inbetween of Winter, and Spring that we’re all currently in. It’s not too commonly seen in the fashion world, but in the arts and decor world this color is everywhere!

Cuisine Art

Cuisine Art, Culinary Creations, and a Combo to go!

 Are you hungry for art? Pizza, pasta, hot dogs, fresh fruit, is it lunch time yet? We’re not sure about you, but we absolutely love food. To the Foodies of the world, we raise our glasses and praise you! Mmmmm Food!

 The great thing about food is it’s easy to celebrate in artwork, and even easier in real life. You can see it across the globe, in different countries. Everyone’s gotta eat! Cuisine art is very popular in kitchens, cafes, and bars. Think about it, what’s more inspiring than your favorite dishes proudly displayed in the very place where they’re created? Cuisine or Culinary Art is a celebration of food, drink, and the culture surrounding the two. Everyone eats, and a common question is “What’s for Dinner?”

 Mealtimes aren’t just to enjoy delicious food, they’re also seen as time well spent with friends and family. It’s a common tradition to either go out and eat for a celebration, or to have a meal with close family. Take time to think about the holiday season, most holidays  take Cuisine into consideration. Cuisine Art is just as important, as it emphasizes and reminds us of those times, and those special meals. Have you ever had a big bowl of soup on a dreary miserable day? Or possibly on a day you were sick? This is when that soup not only becomes a wonderful meal, but it’s a symbol as well. Or have you had a fresh summer fruit on a hot day? They become links in our minds to our favorite memories. I’m sure if you think about it hard enough you can even smell your favorite food being made. Is your mouth watering yet?

 

 Admit it, you know you’ve stood in front of your fridge, door open, wondering what delicious goodness to ingest. Everyone’s done it, there’s nothing to be ashamed of. So, when you take time to decorate, seriously consider some Cuisine Art on your walls. Some of the most stylish designs can even incorporate Cuisine Art into uncommon spaces. It’s a daring and bold move, but it’s definitely one that we can all appreciate.

 

Here are a few pieces we think are absolutely delectable!

Abstract Art: The Appeal of Audacity

Don’t miss out on sale, save 30% Off our entire Abstract Art Collection. Be sure to check out artists such as Mark Rothko, Eva Carter, and Odilon Redon!

Abstract art, is definitely one of the most visually interesting styles in the art world. The style itself doesn’t seem to have any restraint, if anything it’s a colorful mess of fun. Usually abstract art can (and cannot) be characterized by shapes, forms, and colors that create more of a visual language than a clear cut image. You usually won’t see detailed figures, or any one thing that defines the picture as a whole. What you see is usually a visual that is left to the viewers imagination. The beauty of the abstract style is really that the viewer is in control of what message they receive.

You’ve probably seen or heard references of people standing in a museum looking at an image, and one person goes, “This piece really moves me, I can see the passion through the linear strokes the artist created. It’s a tragically romantic, with an essence of sexuality.” while a second person may say, “I see a rowboat, and a man lost at sea.” The beauty of abstract art is its against-the-grain-attitude. People will interpret Abstract pieces differently, and instead of an image of a fruit basket, or a bouquet of flowers these pieces challenge the viewer to dig deeper into themselves for meaning.

It’s an introspective challenge to find meaning, or maybe it’s not meant to have any meaning at all. That’s how it’s beautiful and audacious. In a way, lots of artists won’t challenge their audience, they’ll present a beautiful image and the viewer knows exactly what it is. But this style, it pushes you to think deeper, to experience more, to find meaning in it, or to choose to not find meaning at all.

Not only are these pieces visually intriguing, they look stunning in living spaces. If you’re having help visualizing some of these piece we’ll give you a few examples. Here’s a few images from our Pinterest community of how beautiful pieces of Abstract art can complement spaces to create a stunning atmosphere.

Oh Halloween! It’s the time of year that every kid (and many adult children) looks forward to! Dressing up, telling spooky ghost stories, and let’s not forget CANDY! Let’s admit it, Halloween basically starts on the first day of October! There is so much activity and energy in the air. It is said that this is the time when spirits can freely roam the earth with the living. Jack O’ Lanterns are rumored to keep away evil entities, and dressing up is a way to laugh in the face of Death! Muahahaha! But seriously, let’s take a deeper look into what this holiday is all about.


 Halloween: A History

Everyone is going to argue about the origins of Halloween. Some historians claim that it dates back to Pagan rituals that welcomed the change of the season. Others claim that it was a festival to worship Samhain a Pagan God. Some argue that it’s actually a Christian holiday and has nothing to do with Paganism. Whatever religious belief that this holiday originates from Halloween is celebrated by many. Across America children dress up, and walk the streets of their neighborhoods going door to door asking for candy. And, who can argue with Candy? NO ONE. No one can argue with Candy. Candy is delicious.

Decorating for Halloween:

One of the best things about Halloween are the decorations! You’ll always have those couple of houses that compete with each other for the best decorated house. Giant Spiderwebs, Creepy Ghosts, Witches, Black Cats, Pumpkins! All of these things are commonly seen around Halloween. People love to get into the “Spirit”! Hahaha Spirits and Sprites on Halloween Night! Anyway, this is the perfect time to not only decorate the outside of your abode, but you can also bring in the Halloween feeling by decorating with different art pieces.

Check out this lovely space here! This image is from our Pinterest Board: Halloween Art. Not only does the small detailed artwork convey the essence of Halloween, it isn’t overwhelmingly scary.

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.
