Kezzie had a great idea, to organize a Bloggers Art Gallery. Bloggers Art Gallery is a joint effort by a few bloggers, who showcase their artwork, in a time when many museums are closed. You can see in the next picture who is taking part and, if you click on this link to her blog, you’ll find all the links to the all the bloggers who are going to post today.
The idea is that each of us shows what kind of artwork they have in their homes. As art is subjective, I’ve included some things that might not be considered artwork by others, but that’s not bothering me at all. We are in the middle of renovating a few rooms and outside, so I will share posts on those rooms as soon as they are done. I’ve included bits in this post though.
I will start my home gallery tour with a picture of my bedroom, as here is the biggest piece of artwork in the house and one of two considered artwork by… well… everybody.
You can see here more pictures with my bedroom. The artwork on the wall is made by my husband and I. I should mention that the green pillows are temporary, until I find exactly the kind of pillows I’m looking for to replace them. They will take their place in the bench outside, to be used when we are staying in the garden.
These paintings are made by my husband and I, when we’ve attended Painting Classes with The Paint Republic. We’ve had them in the office for a while, but now they are on the staircase.
Next room is the office. I think that interior design is a form of art and I love my desk and my chair. You can see more pictures from my home office.
Here is a close-up with my desk, unique, made by us.
As I’m studying history, I’ve decided to make a minimalist pedigree of the English Kings and Queens, starting with Edgar I (959) to the present day, including the latest addition to the Royal Family, Archie. It’s clean and clear and I actually use it from time to time.
Next on my tour is the living room. The bookcase might look simple, but it is entirely made by my husband and I. It started its life as a huge MDF panel (or 10) and it ended up like this. I like how we’ve designed it to cross over the next wall, as you can see it more clearly in the following picture.
This is a bit of Tudor ceramic that I bought from the Jewel Tower in London and it is on the same shelf with some books on Tudor life.
This bookcase is on the opposite wall of the living room. It is not filled with books yet… but I’m working hard on doing that. The vases are made by Rose Dickinson; are handmade and I have a bigger one too. I like using two of them at the same time. She is such a great artist.
Lastly, this is the porch floor, made in a similar manner to the office desk, but with different colours. It is very hardy and resistant and it looks so very special too. Some might not consider this art, but, if it was not on the floor but on a canvas and displayed on a wall would it have been different? I don’t think so.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my tour and make sure you are checking what the other bloggers have shared, if you are curious.
