High End v. Low End Art

Over the weekend, Daughter worked on two different art projects, one high-end and one-low end. It got us thinking about our own art collections in general. Throughout our own homes, we’ve tried to balance a mixture of high- and low-end art work. The high-end art pieces were investments and art that we connected to on an emotional level. Art that we will keep for our lifetime. Yet, our taste change and so our lower-end art work reflects current trends that can be easily interchangeable. Art that we may or may not discard after a few months or years.

Personally, we believe a home should reflect the owner’s personal style and taste. A well-rounded collection of high-end or low-end art can help present their personal story. Artwork isn’t confined to framed prints or canvases. Not only do we love a well-balanced collection at different price points but we also admire a collection full of art pieces – as in, anything can be art. Art in the form of a funky mirror, vintage dishes, gallery wall, a vintage airplane, old barn wood and the list could go on and on!

A Patriotic Picture Frame

July 4th is absolutely our favorite holiday! Well, besides Christmas, but as it’s a close second. You may remember our over-the-top Lakeside Celebration: A July4th Boat Dock. Georgia stills loves her American Pallet Flag and hangs it in her back yard.

This year we have another amazing Americana project to reveal on Monday. Before then, we want to inspire you with a mini-project: a Patriotic Picture Frame.

{DIY} Louisiana Sportsman Welcome Mat

We sincerely apologize for being MIA over the last few weeks. No worries, we are still DIYing and creating, but a few big projects have seized our attention! We were in the ‘not-so-fun’ stage of covering up nail holes, priming walls and painting large rooms; nothing exciting to share on the blog! We’ve turned the corner on the projects and will have a few amazing, revamped bedrooms to show you in the coming weeks!

Before the room transformation reveals, we want to highlight some smaller projects. Up first, our DIY Louisiana Sportsman Welcome Mat!
