Art: White-on-White

When I bought my house 2 years ago, my nephews gave me a trio of all white art (seen here). My sister thoughtfully gave them a bunch of white supplies (e.g., paper, feathers, glitter, tissue paper) and let each of them create a piece of art for me. I really love this trio and they have a prominent place on my living room wall.

I find monochromatic art to be interesting, clever, and serene.

Giveaway: Caviar20 + Glenn Dixon Home by KORHANI Home

Well, have I got a treat for you this Monday morning! I’ve teamed up with¬†Caviar20 and Korhani to giveaway a beautiful area rug designed by Canadian design star¬†Glenn Dixon. Excited? So am I! Happy Monday, dear readers!

If you had a chance to stop by Art Toronto this weekend, you may have noticed Dixon’s¬†Korhani rugs in¬†the VIP Lounge designed by Troy Seidman of Caviar20. If not, here’s a quick peek:

Quite a piece of art, isn’t it? The 8×12 rug would look equally interesting in a bedroom, living room, or dining room. Don’t you agree? Dixon’s Korhani rugs will officially¬†launch in 2015.

Since I worked with Troy from Caviar20 to arrange this post, I just had to think about what pieces I would pick from Caviar20 to pair with the rug. Here are my top choices:

Art: Black & White

I currently have two large canvases leaning against my office wall waiting for me to¬†paint. My parents commissioned me. (Can I pretend it’s a real art gig?). While¬†I’m not quite ready to paint them (lack of free time as of late), I am ready to share some of the interesting pieces¬†art I’ve been eyeing lately.

There’s more black than white in most of these pieces,¬†and¬†I love how different they are from one another. The “top secret” piece is so amusing (to me, anyway).
