When I last wrote about Kimberly Applegate and her artwork, I mentioned that I made some purchases myself. The artwork has been framed for sometime now.
They've been leaning against a wall in our bedroom because we have not moved forward on our wall color selection. My fear of color commitment is preventing progress but that is a story for another day.
I am very excited though about these pieces and know they will complement our room very elegantly when it's complete.
I decided we needed something whimsical and bar-appropriate.
It's the foil & wire from the top of a champagne bottle made to look like a chair. I love this piece for it's uniqueness and imagination. Very clever of Ms. Applegate and her creativity to create such a whimsical piece of art.
As I shared in the Art & Photography section of this site, it's the architectural muscle and style of chairs that truly represent my passion for interior design. And I find her artwork to be the ideal gift for almost anyone who admires design in any shape or form.
There are some pieces that represent a moment, such as a favorite chair with a pile of books nearby that would appeal to a book reader's typical setting.
And with all the fuss I've made over calendars lately, I also learned that Joie de Vivre is offering her version for 2009 featuring her artwork (there are 3 versions). It is the answer for my desire to have a home decor themed calendar as well as space to note small details.
Both the calendars and artwork at Joie de Vivre make divine gifts for the holidays. Keep an eye on eBay too for Ms. Applegate's original artwork.
I hope you find these ideas helpful.
Joyeux Noël my friends.
