The Artsy Home: Gather ‘Round the Table

23 Nov

There will be lots of gathering of friends and family around our dining tables this Thursday.  Grandma’s china comes out of storage, the crystal sparkles and the silver shines.  For some dining rooms, this is the most action they see all year!  We eat in the kitchen, over the sink or on the couch in front of the tv.  But this gathering place is not a room to neglect!  It’s a place, to quote Simon dePury, “Be bold, be amazing!” ( Are you watching Work of Art?! )

The dining room, even if not a formal, separate space is the spot to make a big statement.  So in this edition of The Artsy Home, I’ve gathered up some images of inspiring spots, a feast for the eyes!

Want to have fun dinner parties?  Make sure the art in the room reflects your cheeky style!

Or maybe you want to throw ultra-cool and hiply intellectual soirees?  Add some graphic punch with your artwork.

Or maybe you like to keep things fresh and elegant?  Let oversized artwork shine, so if guests need a break from conversation, give them oversized artwork to get lost in.

Want to be really bold?  Paint the walls a deep, rich color and let simple, graphic artwork be the star of the show!

Wouldn’t even a frozen pizza seem like a gourmet meal in an artsy environment?  Pass the parmesean!
