New art in my dining room from Minted

I have been on the hunt for some art for my dining room wall for a while now and wasn't really sure what I wanted until the folks at Minted got in touch and offered me a framed limited edition fine art print. I was so excited to go through allllllllll the prints on their site. They have so many talented artists on board. I thought it would be an intimidating experience but I was immediately drawn into so many gorgeous prints and quickly realized their website is incredibly user-friendly. It's so awesome I have to show you. 

This is the print I went with - take a seat by Eric Eikenbary. When you select the size and frame you want on the right side, the left side shows you the photo framed, in a room, the frame close-up and how the print looks to scale. Freaking genius!!!! I seriously love this, and it's great for people who are dimension-challenged and order items online only to receive it and go "huh, I thought it was alot bigger than that". Now you can see before you buy! Anyway, they have lots of options for the frame material and borders/matting and all that good stuff. I went with a simple matt black metal frame and no matt/border. I am thrilled with my selection. It is so much better than the vintage metal sculpture I had there instead. I was hoping for something more graphic and I love photographic art so kudos to Eric Eikenbary for knocking this photo out of the park. I also need to share this photo I took on my phone just as I was digging into the package. 

My framed print was soooo well packaged, especially given I ordered it in 30x40' so I was a bit anxious to see how it was going to make the trip up from the States (California I think). It was completely unscathed, which is not surprising given their packaging methods. And the herd of cats lounged on the boxes for 2 days until I got tired of stepping over them. :) Anyway, let me show you more of my new art!

Pati's no-longer-a-mud-patch backyard

Massively slanted mud patch??? Pati Robins has worked miracles on her backyard space and it has me so inspired to get my arse moving on my own outdoor spaces whenever our frigid winter decides to come to an end. And how incredible is that photo above?!

Still stalking

OK I'll fess up. I missed this house on my recent forays into local real estate listings until a fellow stalker sent me a link. Am I glad she did! Favourite Sydney suburb Redfern? Tick. Terrace house renovation? Tick. Great art collection? Tick. Cool mix of old and new? Tick. Polished plaster walls that must feel amazing on a stinking hot day? Tick. Link here while it lasts.

William T. Georgis and statement art

William T. Georgis creates extra special spaces with bold art statements. Some examples were in my last post but these ones I am partial to.
