If I Was A Rich Boy (Na, Na, Na…): Art Lust!

12 July 2013 0


I really, really love nice things to hang on the walls or lean on them. It is a little crush of mine. Actually, I am currently working on a gallery wall but that takes time – it must grow almost organically:-) 

Most of the time I buy pretty affordable art prints and illustrations. A few years ago I invested a bit more money in an original art piece of the Berlin based illustrator Olaf Hajek and it is my sort of luxury treat if you want so. 

A friend of mine told me about a site called artsation.com a few days ago. I had to glance at it of course – first because I love art and second because it’s a Munich based online art gallery for contemporary art. So I clicked and clicked and well, I ended up with four favorite art pieces. Instantly I had the fiddler’s tune in my head ‘If I was a rich boy na na na…’ – because if I were, I’d be spending money like right now. Of course I’d be living in a spacious lofty apartment where I could hang this fab art and dwell in my own little gallery. You see, it’s a dreamy Friday today. But every now and then one must invest in good art, right?

Happy Friday, friends!

    I was just going to say….. first we need wall space and a fantastic loft:-) LOL

    I have no wall space and little floor/shelf space for framed art so struggle with this. In my dreams I would also have a gallery….

    Nice selection. I love your Olaf print… am maybe jealous:-))

    Now, the interesting point here is that the song goes: if I was a rich man ( you chose boy LOL)

    Have a good weekend!

      Agree with you, Tina! And as for the title: I know, I just had to make it a bit crazier, a bit more me (wishing I still was a boy LOL).

    Yes-grow it organically-totally agree Igor. I’m trying to do the same thing. I adore this first picture-actually Toni @skandivis is the only person in the UK to sell those wonderful alphabet prints-I’m going to take a few shots for her in my garden shed! 😉 Have a lovely weekend 🙂

    totally agree. If I were rich I would also buy some great art pieces. Finding art that really resonates with me and fits like a glove…hard! Last week I finally found something (I put it on my facebookpage) and I emailed the artist earlier today to enquire about the price. But in my gut I already know that it’ll be expensive. But a girl can always hope right?
    I like your picks especially the one with the glistening sea. Just because turquoise and beaches are my favourites too.
