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!
