The Impact of Art

HB Home

 We’re always hesitant to pinpoint the most important element in a room.

Because, in reality, they all combine together to create a room with a certain feel and appeal.


Gallery Wall Reveal!


Happy Monday, everyone! We’re so excited to share our gallery wall reveal with all of you today! This is a major wall in our house, and we have hemmed and hawed over the perfect thing for this space. This challenge was our answer!

 We love all sorts of different configurations of gallery walls, as you all know. Symmetrical or just a little bit unsymmetrical, we think they’re all quite fabulous. But, as you’ll see, going with symmetry for this behemoth of a wall was a pretty obvious choice. 


In Good Taste: Lucy Williams Design


 Few things say, “Welcome,” like a fun and festive front door color.


And if anyone knows about the importance of color, it’s interior designer and amazing artist Lucy Williams


Top Ten: Works of Art

Nothing adds instant personality and loads of pizazz to a room like art. We’re loving modern pieces for their ability to infuse a space with youth, energy and style. Check out a few of our favorite Saturday picks from the fabulous Serena and Lily


Far From a Blank Canvas

We are always astounded by the incredible talent of amazing artists. And you probably already know that we absolutely love artists and anywhere you can buy original art online
Peter Dunham via Architectural Digest
While some pieces are meant to be merely accessories in an otherwise fabulous room,
Larisa Ilieva Artist
Some paintings simply can’t help but steal the show. (Wow!)
Splendid Willow
We love how some pieces define the color scheme in a room,
Casa Vogue
while others blend beautifully in, whispering to be seen.
Karina Knight Artist
Some rooms scream for traditional art.
Jessika Gorenson
Whether large, statement pieces or groups of smaller artifacts,
LA Showhouse

there’s no doubt that the infusion of an unexpected piece of art can completely change the look of a room.

Mary Ann Wakeley Artist
We think this painting would do that job quite nicely!

Pops of yellow make a sunny statement, bursting with life,
Ron Peploe Artist
and can’t help but get noticed.
Metropolitan Home
But, for the ultimate “can’t-look-away” piece, nothing tops the wow factor of bold black and white.
Kaley Rhodes Artist
Could you look away from this?
House of Windsor
I guess, when you get right down to it, every element in a room is a work of art and makes every day beautiful.
Xiaoyang Galas Artist
We love that every sunrise is a brand new, blank canvas. How are you going to paint your day?


Things We Love: Framed Art

Domino Magazine
It’s the ultimate expression of classic American chic. We can’t think of many more places that we consistently find authentic inspiration than in the pages of Vogue. I’ve always wanted a framed collection of the covers of my favorite issues, and this fabulous wall makes me think: What am I waiting for? It just goes to show that art doesn’t always color inside the lines. We should surround ourselves with whatever makes us feel good! Whether they’re paintings, prints, or something a little more outside the box, we absolutely love a good gallery wall. We hope you do too!
Beautiful Spaces
Wouldn’t we all love an opportunity to remember our favorite shopping trips a little more often? Why not memorialize them on your wall!
There’s nothing more precious than those first beautiful works of art. What a great way to cherish them forever!
Summer House Style
We always love a set of aquatic prints. They’re right up there with botanicals
At Home in Arkansas
What a great way to learn numbers… And remember the rules!
Moth Design
Another epic shopping day!
Pomp and Circumstance
But the most beautiful art simply can’t be bought. 

A random collection of art is always fun…
Restoration Hardware
But a matching gallery can add chic uniformity. Black and white art always makes a statement.
Doughlas Friedman
Sometimes we like the kind of art that makes you step a little closer to really check it out.

An art wall in the playroom is such a great way for little imaginations to take flight… It works pretty well for grown-ups too! Thanks for visiting us today.
