As you guys will probably know, i’ve been faffing around with our living room gallery wall for a while now. Ya know, since I finally painted all the walls black.
I liked it, but it wasn’t quite right. Not yet anyway. Luckily, around the same time, Posterlounge got in touch asking if i’d like to work with them on a post. Erm yes please! Yeah, I would. So I jumped onto their site and began the search for new art and artists.
Stage 1 of operation ‘Gallery Wall Update’. Still not quite right.
The Posterlounge site is BIG! They have A LOT of stuff and the best thing is it’s all super affordable with prices starting from around £6.90 with free delivery. Pretty good eh?
‘WAITING MAGRITTE’ by THE USUAL DESIGNERS
Absolutely love the colours. Clouds and faces. Faces and clouds. They get me every time!
They have everything you could think of; photography, illustrations, abstract, realism, surrealism, advertising posters, paintings, graphic design, digital art, collage art, typography…. The list is endless, so it took me a while to fill my basket. And you can also choose your format. Do you want it on a poster? A canvas? On wood? Or acrylic glass, Forex or Alu-Diobond, all of which can be used indoors and outdoors. Artwork in the bathroom or garden anyone?
I ordered everything in varying sizes and in poster format. Three days later, a poster tube arrived safe and sound with all my new goodies. Just as promised on the site. Ace.
‘Monroe’ by Rosa Picnic
I didn’t really know where everything was going, I just chose pieces I liked. Best way to buy art I always think. My love of Marilyn is long lived. I have a few pictures of her around the house already and ‘Monroe’ by Rosa Picnic just made me smile. I love her expression, her pose, the simple pop of colours. Destined for my magnetic gallery wall in my home office, she was.
‘Certain kind of magic’ by Louie Jover
Along with ‘Certain kind of magic’ by Louie Jover. I’ve nearly bought this so many times in the past, so it was a no brainer to pop the beautiful rainbow head-explosion in my basket.
‘He Was Ideal’ by Evgenij Soloviev
And a small piece of surrealist art by Evgenij Soloviev, featuring gravity defying feats and another small cloud in the sky.
Back to the living room gallery wall to see what else I discovered.
‘Rosemary’ by Peg Essert
Or Flower Face as I call her. Rosemary was the perfect colour for this room. And she had a cool blouse on. Where can I get a blouse like that?
‘The red stripe in the head and cigarette in the hand’ by Marko Koppe
This piece by Marko Koppe just made me laugh. Art that makes you smirk is a good place to start. So there’s one more piece to add to this wall to pull it all together.
‘Angelene’ by Ryan Pickart
I took a gamble on Angelene by Ryan Pickart being the piece this gallery wall needed to make everything else click. I wasn’t sure if the white would be a bit cold, against all the rich mustards, reds and oranges in the room, but it actually works really well and gives the gallery wall the focus is really needed.
Stage 2 of operation ‘Gallery Wall Update’. Complete
Absolutely love the colours and the brush stroke detail picked up on the poster print.
Definitely check out Posterlounge if you’re on the hunt for affordable ways to update your interiors. Refreshing your artwork, maybe moving it around or adding one or two new pieces to the mix can be a really simple way of giving a space a new focal point.
What do you reckon guys? You like the update? Let me know what you think of my new art finds and which one is your favourite!
