Statement Pieces

Lately I have really been wanting to get some original artwork in my house. Top on my list is a painting by my dear friend Katie Stevenson- her artwork is stunning. If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know how much I love her work. She is so talented and I think the painting would have even more meaning since a good friend painted it. These are two of my favorite paintings she has done.

You can view all her artwork HERE
I am also a huge fan of Sally King Benedict, another local artist here in Charleston. Her work is gorgeous as well.

Check out her full gallery HERE
These are a few beautiful pieces I have seen floating around the blogersphere that I am really digging as well. Can you tell I love modern art and the bigger the better!

Happy Thursday! I am off to meet two of my favorite bloggers for a coffee date! xoxo

    Ohhh you should definitely get a piece from your friend, her work is gorgeous. I am with you, I love huge modern art. Especially in a space with a little more traditional feel. Gorgeous pieces!

    I've never loved modern art but recently I've been so drawn to it. I love all the colors. There is just something about original art that just really elevates a space.

    I like the last one. Some abstract art annoys me. It looks like something I could paint even though I know I couldn't!!!

    I LOVE the colors in the Benedict pieces! I'm totally with you on having artwork by your friend, as well! One of my cousins is an incredible artist and I would love to have something by her for my future home!
