...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Emily who wants to use the featured painting below in her mom’s bedroom.

Our walls are bare. Naked. Empty. Boring. Eventually, I’ll get around to hanging stuff. I already have big plans {if only in my head} for a wall display near the front door to create an entryway of sorts. Until then, I’ll continue unpacking in between organizing, re-organizing and looking after the kids. I’m about halfway through the boxes in the garage. Ugh.

For those of you in a better place domestically, Tenth Floor Decor is graciously sponsoring this week’s giveaway. The founder of Tenth Floor Decor, Ross, created the small business after visiting an art gallery in Soho where he found pieces that he loved but could not afford. Tenth Floor Decor offers original, high quality oil paintings at a price point that’s more feasible to the everyday homeowner. See a few of my favorites here.

Are your bare walls crying for some art? Namely, a FREE original oil painting? See details on how to win one below.

PRIZE: any Tenth Floor Decor painting of your choice {retail value of $90-$300}

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a shipping address {no P.O. boxes please} within the U.S to enter. One entry per email address.

HOW TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “I HEART ART!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Thursday, June 21st at 9:00 p.m. EST. One random winner will be announced Friday, June 22nd.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Share your favorite artist and why you are drawn to his/her work. I’ll go first. Ever since her studio tour was featured on Apartment Therapy, I can’t get Robin Luciano Beaty out of my mind. Her encaustic paintings feel like living, breathing, moving pieces of art. And her DIY’d artist barn isn’t too shabby either.

Hmm, I feel like I have a new favorite Etsy artist each week. :) For “older” art, I have been in love with van Gogh ever since I visited the van Gogh museum in Amsterdam 10 years ago.

And I really don’t have a “favorite” artist. I like paintings and don’t care who makes it. That being said Picasso isn’t one of my favorites :P

My favorite artist is Katharine Montstream. She paints watercolors, oils and even charcoal drawings. I love the vibrant colors, how she captures nature, and how she can make me feel like I am there. Done of her winter paintings make me feel like I can hear and smell the snow. She lives in Vermont and is utterly amazing as an artist, mother and community member.

My favorite artist of all time ever is Dale Chihuly. I am more than obsessed with his glass art and it may be my ultimate lifetime goal to own a piece someday. I found out there is an exhibition of his work in Seattle and immediately starting pricing plane tickets to see it. Sadly it’s all out of budget at the moment……but someday!
