Interior Styling: Folk Art + Giveaway

14 March 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, 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, the German outlet of, 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 – 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 15 March 2013 at 11:45

    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! πŸ˜‰
    Great giveaway!

    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.

    A colourful print to match the cushion cover I won! Yes please! πŸ˜‰
    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.

    I´d hang it on my bedroom πŸ™‚ It looks totally awesome and I would LOVE to win it πŸ˜›

    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 19 March 2013 at 07:44

    I’d hang it above my dining room table so I could talk about it with guests over dinner πŸ™‚

  • Reply thepetitechef 19 March 2013 at 16:50

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

    In my living room above the couch!
