hello!


well hello out there. first & foremost, thanks to grace for the opportunity to blog for the design*sponge guest blog. lena's posts the last few weeks have been quite invigorating so i'll be hoping to keep up that momentum of sharing inspirations with you.


on my blog, port2port, i journal with one of my best friends about design, art, life and photography {mainly our own as we post photos every day}. a few months ago we had a week where we talked about art in the home. when grace asked me to blog i thought immediately about that topic. so, in these next few weeks i'll be writing about different art sites and artists who have moved me ... oh and i will be focusing on affordability as well. i know the idea of what is affordable is different to everyone but in this case i am going to keep the art under $100 and more likely under $50.


to me, art that you put in your home has to somehow grab you. it might be as simple as the art being something you don't mind seeing every day or maybe even that you would get something different from every time you have a moment to ponder it. or in lots of cases it just needs to look good in a certain space. i have included a few photographs from my apartment in this first post {artists will be featured later}. i tend to use my bits of art to create small vignettes. i like to use what i have on hand and pair it with art that i purchase or art that is given to me. i also like to do a lot of rotating so that i don't get bored.


i am really looking forward to sharing a few weeks of ideas with you all. please keep in touch and feel free to email me at port2portpress@gmail.com.
