Other than pillows, art has become one of my favorite items to select for our design projects! Art can make a fabulous focal point in a room with bold pattern & color, or it can be a simplistic pieces that pulls the overall look together too. I love the versitility that it can bring to a space and when selecting the right piece for a client, there are so many factors to consider.
I stumbled across Andrea Pramuk on Pinterest a few weeks ago and knew that her pieces were perfect for the dining room of this bachelor pad! Working with local artists is something I love to do and being able to support the Texas art community is important to me as a designer. Andrea is based out of Austin, TX and her work is beyond gorgeous!! She mixes watercolor, oil, alcohol inks and cold wax to create her pieces, I love the depth and softness that she creates!
Scale, color, texture and pattern are the main points to consider when selecting art. Since my projects tend to be layered with bold color and texture, the right piece of art is always the one thing that I obsess over. We recently began work on an Uptown Dallas bachelor pad and our client was immediately drawn to the pieces we selected for his space. Warm tonal colors keep the rooms sophisticated, while the playful watercolor patterns bring in a casual feel to avoid being a bit stuffy! Most of the bachelors that I work with do not gravitate toward a ton of bold color and pattern, so layering the space with the right piece of art is always the best approach.
We needed two large scale pieces to really make an impact in the open dining room, and “Currents” was our favorite by far. Andrea was able to help us create the custom sizes we needed, being able to mirror the pieces made the overall look a bit more interesting while still being clean and tasteful!
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from Andrea’s collection. If you are in the market for something unique and need to work with custom sizing, her selection is huge! From soft blush pinks and spring pastels to bold and deep blues and plums, there is sure to be something that catches your eye!
