Pink and Blue Nook

Quite a few months ago I shared some of my favorite affordable pieces of art from Artfully Walls (see the post here).  I ended up buying 3 of the 6 pieces I featured because I loved the colors and the price, but held off on getting them framed until I actually had a place to put them.  Once I moved to the new apartment though, I finally had some extra wall space, as well as the perfect spot for my favorite piece: a pink abstract by Emily Rickard.  

My motivation for the placement of this piece, as well as the frame choice, came from this piece below by Kerri Shipp of Driftwood Interiors.  Thanks to one of you amazing readers who told me about this piece!  The sofa really does look very similar to mine!

I apologize for the glare, the lighting in this room is crazy due to all the windows!

Don’t these look so great paired together and hung over my big blue ikat couch?  I just love how it turned out and think it looks nice and cheerful.

The top left piece is actual a card that I bought at the Royal Hawaiian in Waikiki, and the top right piece is something my parents bought in Puerto Rico when we went when I was 2 years old.  The little mirror was bought at a craft fair in DC.

This peacock used to be next to my bed in my old apartment, but now it has a new home.  I purchased this on Etsy years ago, but now it’s offered here.

Continuing the pink theme, I split up my pink wingback chairs and now I have one on either side of the couch.  See the lobster crawling up the wall?  That’s an antique brass piece I found at a Lucketts.

While the blue and white pillows don’t quite mimic the pops of pink in the Driftwood Interiors painting, I do think they look pretty dang good.  Bottom blue pillow is from Belquist, and the white pompom pillow is from H&M.  I like how the blue pillow doesn’t quite “match” the cobalt blue in the sofa, but it totally “goes.”

This lamp is from Homegoods, acrylic frame is from Crate & Barrel, and the print on the wall of the bowls is another piece from Artfully Walls.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this glimpse into my little pink and blue nook!  I’ll share more of the apartment as the clutter gets organized and things are more picture-worthy 🙂

    I'm so glad you bought the driftwood interiors print! It was made for your space!
    I have several pink abstracts in my Etsy cart right now but I may give myself a shot at creating a one-of-a-kind piece of my own! Your's look great in brass and there's never a shortage of brass frames when thrifting.

    I love this little nook! Your gallery wall is gorgeous! I could sit there for hours with my tea or coffee and a good book or some decorating magazines!
