Mix & Match: Art + Furnishings!

Sunday, May 2, 2010 · No Comments

The Mix & Match series pairs art with furnishings. There are a million ways to mix and match art and furniture, and hopefully this will help get you thinking creatively about art in your home!

Why this combo?

This combo features art by New York abstract painter and Art Hound favorite, Julie Evans. Julie’s work is influenced by the tradition of miniature painting which you see in her work’s exquisite details and decorative elements. The overall feel of the painting I selected is organic and kind of zen. Many of the colors and shapes are rooted in nature, which is picked up the design of the rug and the moss-colored couch. I purposely selected understated furnishings with clean, modern lines so that the focus is on Julie’s work and everything else is complementary. The yellow lamp picks up the vibrant palette of the painting and brings more continuity to the space. This is pretty much my dream living room!
