Hi everyone! I hope you all had a terrific weekend and were able to get outside and enjoy some of the amazing weather we had! (For those of you in KC, that is!) 😉 It was sooo nice to see a little sunshine on Saturday! It’s amazing what a little vitamin D can do for my mood… who’s with me?
If you watch Bargain Mansions and/or follow me on Instagram, you know I’m a huge fan of artwork! My dad and I work on some BIG houses… and big houses have BIG walls! Adding large pieces of beautiful art is the best way to fill empty wall space and make a statement. It’s the perfect finishing touch to a room because it always ties everything together! The best part…? Original artwork can be found at ANY price point.
Over the past few weeks, a lot of you have reached out asking where I get all of my artwork for the show houses, so I thought I’d sit down and share a few of my go-to artists!
I love everything about Kelly O’Neal’s artwork! He uses color combinations that I often wouldn’t think to use and they always look incredible. His paintings have a sense of movement that I just love!
Audrey Benskin’s paintings have such a soft, cheerful feel to them. I can hang her paintings anywhere, but I especially love to use them in kitchens and bedrooms!
Leopold Art Gallery was such an awesome resource during our first season of Bargain Mansions. They’re a local art gallery in KC, carrying a wide variety of artwork from Kansas City artists as well as regional artists. They’re also a consulting firm, so they’re a fabulous resource for those of you who may need a little assistance picking out art for your home or office.
Jill Gapczynski is another one of my favorite local artists! The color palettes, the textures, the way you can see the movement of the brush strokes.. I love it all.
As always, if you all have any questions about any of the paintings you see in my homes, never hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll point you in the right direction 🙂 Have a great week, everyone!
