June is Pride Month and I thought you would enjoy this fun video the Toronto Zoo put together of the animals celebrating. My daughters love marching in the Peterborough Pride parade with their school but, this year it’s unfortunately not going to happen.
Bring new life to your walls with artwork! Art is for everyone and I wanted to share some prints that are available now through our shop.
I’ve sourced some styled shots for you, I thought it would be helpful for you to see them in an interior. Artwork is very personal, my opinion is, if you love it, buy it, then you can find the perfect spot for it in your home. It doesn’t have to match your decor, have fun and be bold with your choices. You want to have an emotional connection with it in some way and feel happy while viewing it.
Contact us, or stop into the showroom for more details. Many of the prints offered are available in a selection of sizes and frame colours. We can’t wait to help you create your own gallery.
Sources of photos from first to last: Julia Salerno & Natalie Balen-Cinelli, Black Rooster, Orsi Panos, Montana Labelle, Boston Interiors, Yelena Gerts, LD Shoppe, Raquel Langworthy and LD Shoppe.
Whether your style is Modern, Traditional, Minimalist or Scandinavian we can help you source the perfect artwork.
There are lots of talented artists in our own community that may be new to you. Artist Christy Haldane is a glass artist out of Lakefield. I love the vase she has sculpted, shown below. The mix of glass and stone can be found in many of her pieces, which include jewellery and both indoor and outdoor sculptures. Make sure to check out her site.
I had the opportunity to chat with Owen the artist behind Burn Island a while back about his free hand plasma cutting art pieces. I purchased a beautiful saw he created a while back, such a unique gift. As a trained welder/artist he lives in Douro and does a lot of custom work. Make sure you look him up.
“With a work of art, you can sense the time, effort, and skill that went into its creation. You may have even gotten the chance to meet the artist in person or hear the story behind the work. Even if you haven’t met the artist in person, seeing the fingerprints, brush strokes or marks on the work serves as a reminder of the person behind the work of art.”
Art reminds us of what’s possible and breathes life into a home. Since we are spending so much of our time in our most intimate spaces right now, why not fill them with things that bring us joy. – Holly
