Heaven’s to Etsy – Art

I have had a Etsy post planned for a long time, but it is such a large resource I had a hard time figuring out how to tackle it.  I decided to do a weekly post about different areas of Etsy.  This week…..Art.  Even this single category was daunting, there are currently about 25,000 pages of art.  This is an amazing (mostly) affordable resource.  There is quite a bit of trite schmaltzy stuff (keep calm and carry on posters in infinite colors, sizes and varieties), but there is also an abundance of interesting original art.  Here are a few that caught my fancy (clicking on the photo will send you to the Etsy post).

Have I mentioned that for the second year in a row I planted poppies and absolutely NOTHING came up?  I read up on them and I can’t see anything I am doing wrong.  For now, these are the only poppies in my life.

I barely scratched the surface of art and artists on Etsy.  If you have a favorite or an Etsy seller, please share in the comments.  I would love to have a look!

About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
