Inspiration for an Art Collection

I came to the realization the other day that I’m ready to start a grown up art collection.

I have only three pieces of art that are even important to me, and none of them are the big statement pieces I want. All three of them are posters we’ve picked up while traveling. Here are two of them…

In the past (aside from these three posters) all the art on my walls has been limited to things I got for free, paintings I did myself, and art I picked up at Goodwill. I’m ready for a more intentional art collection. I LOOOOOOVE art! It can really add so much visual interest and sophistication to a room. Until now, I’ve just lacked the resources to get the big and beautiful pieces I’ve wanted. Shane and I agree that its time to start building a collection slowly over time. We will start slowly and wait to find the perfect pieces. Our collection will most likely consist of originals, prints, and possibly a few pieces we make ourselves. We plan to be patient and keep our eyes open for art that we really just fall in love with.

I hopped onto Pinterest and Houzz to find some inspiration of all different types of rooms with beautiful art in them! Enjoy all this eye candy…

The pictures below are some of my favorite looks, because they just feel more like my style…
