Interior Styling: Folk Art + Giveaway

March 14, 2013 0

I’ve mentioned a few times that I have a really hard time to commit to one single interior style. I have corners in my apartment with a Scandinavian vibe, I have my funky vintage finds, I have some ethnic slash folksy accessories. And it is weird as everything has a certain appeal to me. On the other hand, I like that cause it always challenges my eye to juggle things together in a somewhat aesthetic way. If I succeed or not, that is a whole new question.

Speaking of folksy art for interior styling I got myself playing on my laptop. I juggled a few online finds into a sort of inspiration board for a folk art styled living room. I’ve put a few things together: A vintage leather sofa for the tactile and natural feel (No. 2, by Avandeo), a framed Frida Kahlo portrait to set the tone on the wall (No. 1, by AllPosters.de), hand-embroidered cushions with folksy colours to embellish your sofa (No. 3, by Heidi Merrick), a leafy fiddle fig tree for a dash of jungle fever (No. 4, seen on House Tweaking), a hand-woven African basket for storage (No. 5, by Dioum African Art) and finally, a vintage kilim rug to tie the colourful blast together (No. 6, via Ebay). 


If you like a bit of folksy art for your happy home, here is an excellent kick-off: The cool folks at AllPosters.de, the German outlet of Art.com, is one of the leading online retailer for wall art. Their portfolio bursts of abundance and if you are looking for a great way to personalize your walls, that’s the address to search for. But for one of you this search will have a shortcut – AllPosters.de offers the shown framed Frida Kahlo portrait (retail value 150 Euros) as a giveaway to one of you! All you have to do is leave a comment under this post and tell me where you’d hang it. The giveaway is open internationally and will close next Friday at midnight CET. Good luck my stylish friends!

    I love the fig tree, I was wondering wether it would last indoors and without much sun… I am really tempted! And about the Frida print it would have to go in the hallway against a white wall, maybe match it with a colourful kilim rug like the one in your post! /maria x

  • Reply ninjaanderlohr March 15, 2013 at 11:45 am

    Oh that rug is so so awesome!
    I wanted a Frida Kahlo print for quite some time, since it would make a perfect addition for my portait collection: A handdrawn b/w-picture by a schoolmate, a cutout of Picassos famous “Artisten”-picture and a lonely page from a lost arts-book… hanging it all around my eating table to always have company for dinner, if there are no friends around! ;-)
    Great giveaway!

    Have a nice weekend!

    Last fall I was fortunate to be able to visit Frida’s home in Mexico. I’ll have to do a post on my experience soon. I’m loving that kilim rug. You have done a great job pulling together those elements – the room looks so casual, perfect for a young family.

    In my office – I’ve been looking for something bright and bold just like this to spruce the place up!

  • Reply Swati March 15, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    This goes right above my bed…..Frida deserves no lesser space than that! :)

    A colourful print to match the cushion cover I won! Yes please! ;-)
    What a wonderful giveaway. Well, I probably wouldn’t hide Frida Kahlo in the TV room so I’m thinking the hallway or a corner in the living room where I keep books on a table.

  • Reply Jiienna March 17, 2013 at 9:07 am

    I´d hang it on my bedroom :) It looks totally awesome and I would LOVE to win it :P

  • Reply saracam March 17, 2013 at 9:52 pm

    I can’t hang anything on the walls of my home as the landlords damp-proofed the walls and I can’t pierce the membrane. However – I’m moving – and Frida would look so great in my new 70s flat, fab windows, liberating space….

  • Reply Jemma March 19, 2013 at 7:44 am

    I’d hang it above my dining room table so I could talk about it with guests over dinner :)

    I’d hang this painting adjacent to my dining table :) Front and center against my other original abstract pieces!

  • Reply Frau Haselmayer March 19, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    In my living room above the couch!

  • Reply Hanna T March 19, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Love! I would hang it on the empty wall in my room.
