office space of the day... 6 Art wall looks I love

white walls + gorgeous blue chair + retro black lamp + wood desk + mixed framed art pieces =
domestic bliss

I've been working on my art wall above my home office. I'm loving the mix of frame finishes. 

This was the original photo that inspired my current wall. White walls and mixed frames, white, black and metallics. I adore this look, there is something very sophisticated about it. The space looks very modern and well put together, metallic finishes and a little dash of that john lewis furniture look. 
I have also always loved Mary Macdonalds office originally in Domino magazine. The contrast of blue and white always really stood out to me. As much as I love the look of mixed frames, there is something very chic about all black and white. She is so glam, I adore her decor.
 Something about this layered look really draws me in too.
 One of the most famous NYC decorators, Charlotte Mott, covers her decor offices in artwork and also mixed in an inspiration board look too. I did the same in my new space. 
 Finally, this really inspired me too. I love the way that the art really pops on the black wall. The mixed style of furnishings just look so polished and well put together.

Secret of domestic bliss #67...layered art

One trick to making your home look well decorated is having plenty of collected art all around your house. It says so much about the vibe and personality of your space. However, there isn't always the space or need for a wall of art. In that case I always suggest to layer your art to make it look more full and sophisticated. There is something about that unfinished art wall look...

 I love different mediums of artwork layered on top of each other, it really lends to interest. For example, a black and white photo paired with an abstract acrylic print and maybe a watercolor or two. 
The key is keeping the color palate to a certain limit and that makes sure it still looks cohesive and put together. This black white and peach combination is too good and goes well with the furniture, too!

needing. wanting. loving. NEON GREEN on the WALL

Oh how my sweet fellow NYC blogger, Jenny, inspires me...almost daily. She zhushed up her home decor with a little neon green, so hot right now! Here are a few ways I am inspired to add a dash of neon green to my home decor...
1) I can do matting on an art wall like jenny or 2) neon green frames like these in the kitchen
3) neon green patterned wallpaper could really get exciting.
4) a super cool fluoro green shower wall...
