I am in the beginning stages of redecorating my Den – okay, VERY beginning stages! Oh alright! – let’s just back up and say that one day soon – I hope to get my act together and re-design my Den! Right now I’m heavily thinking about my scheme and the art work I want to buy to put in the scheme. There are way too many options – just look at some of the art works I’m trying to decide on! – which is why I’m posting today.
Here are some of the kickin’ contemporary art works that I’m in love with!
(I apologize in advance, I grabbed most of these photos from Gregg Irby‘s web site and they are all a bit on the blurry side, no you aren’t drunk!)
Michelle Armas “Spencer” 36×36
This particular piece, by Michelle Armas, is one I quickly fell in love with. Her works are currently being shown at Gregg Irby Fine Art here in Atlanta. Gregg Irby specializes in showcasing emerging artist’s talent. There are several pieces works of Michelle’s that I like at Gregg’s. Sadly, this is not one of them. I found this piece, “Spencer” on google and clipped the photo for my “Den wish list”. I’m assuming this piece is old and sold, since I haven’t been able to locate it on Michelle’s or Gregg’s web site (yes, I’ve been stalking!).
Here are a few other pieces by Michelle Armas. They don’t necessarily work for my Den project – but, I particularly love the vibrant colors that she uses and the movement and energy they invoke.

Michelle Armas, “OK Great” 48×48
Michelle Armas, “Joie” 36×48
Some other powerful canvas contenders for my Den scheme are by Eileen Power, whose work is also being shown at Gregg Irby Fine Art.
Another standout artist featured at Gregg Irby Fine Art is Britt Bass Turner. Her work was recently featured on Jennifer’s blog over at The Pink Pagoda. With so many beautiful pieces to choose from, it’s probably best if you check out her web site. She’s got a gorgeous array of drool-able artworks!
Britt Bass, “Mike N Ike”
I very much am in lust with this “Hot Pink Lemonade”! It would be a gorgeous addition to my Living Room!

I'm an interior designer and a busy mother to two precocious, fun loving boys. I love a good laugh mixed with a side of silly. I'm hopelessly obsessed with trims and colorful fabrics. And cheese. (and frozen margaritas)
Hopefully, my blog will show you a bit more about who I am and how I can help you create a more comfortable and inviting home. Let's go through this journey together - I promise to make it interesting!
