That’s right, we saw Mincing Mockingbird artwork on TV. Just thought we’d share, because when we see our fabulous artists’ works getting the spotlight, we get so proud we could pop our buttons off our vests (if we wore vests). A good ol’ San Diego original, Jack in the Box featured “Cover Owl” wall art by Mincing Mockingbird on one of their recent commercials. Bad Decisions  is another one of their clever commercials Jack in the Box created to make you smirk. In that aspect, Mincing Mockingbird artwork fits right in! There’s no denying the humor behind Mincing Mockingbird’s Matt Adrian and his line of products including his book “The Guide to Troubled Birds”. With the continuing success of his quirky creations, this probably won’t be the last time we see Mincing Mockingbird artwork on TV.

Just a little side note, we think that cool artwork to the left of “Cover Owl” looks incredibly similar to some of the street scenes by artist Amy Paul. Looks like these two artists’ works go together nicely!

Since Pantone’s recent Color of the Year announcement, we’d like to welcome Radiant Orchid to the stage, as it has become the most influential color regarded by Pantone for the year 2014. Here are Pantone’s expectations for the enigmatic color’s role in our interiors:

Radiant Orchid for Interiors
Spruce up interior spaces by incorporating this eye-catching hue in paint, accent pieces and accessories. As adaptable as it is beautiful, Radiant Orchid complements olive and deeper hunter greens, and offers a gorgeous combination when paired with turquoise, teal and even light yellows. Likewise, the vibrant color is sure to liven up neutrals including gray, beige and taupe. Uplifting and bold without being overpowering, Radiant Orchid reenergizes almost any color palette and provides a unifying element for diverse spaces. 

So, we’re here to help bring Radiant Orchid into your surroundings, as a symbol of “growth, renewal, and prosperity” as suggested by Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Whether you’re looking for a swathe or a smattering of Radiant Orchid to enliven your décor, we’ve got a style just for you! Each of these selections by unique artists can easily be paired with coordinating artwork and are available in multiple size options, so that you may make a piece a focal point of the room, or part of a larger grouping.

Here you see a few of our modern artwork selections with a little or a lot of Radiant Orchid. Note each piece listed below in clockwise order starting from the top right: Forest Owl Birch by Eleanor Grosch. Crassissimus by Lisa DeJohn. Pink and Orange by Sally Bennett. Greek Key – Lavender by GreenBox House. Carnival Klimt by Flora Bowley & Jennifer Mercede. Erector Set by Marie Kazalia.

If artwork in a more painterly style is what speaks to you, see a few of our gorgeous selections centered around Radiant Orchid originally painted by different, incredible artists. Artwork listed in clockwise order from the top right: Floral Bouquet Lavender by Angelo Franco. Ballerina Ensemble by Kristina Bass-Bailey. Brown Bunnies Jumping Over Gold Mountain by Eli Halpin. Violet Haze by Deborah Brenner. Just After Sunset by Petite Malou.

Another fitting décor option was mapped out in our recent Gallery Walls with GreenBox Art Prints blog, featuring a Garnet and Gold gallery. The inspiration image we featured from Apartment Therapy highlighted a stunning focal wall in a shade of Radiant Orchid, accented by artwork in splashes of Pantone’s suggested complementing colors: olive greens, light yellows, beige, taupe, along with deeper purples and garnet to intensify the Radiant Orchid tones.

When it comes to drawing the eye to a focal point in your room, size is key. While we love the instant drama of adding oversized GreenBox artwork to your room, another of our favorite show stoppers is a gallery wall – or cluster of wall decor taking up a large space. A gallery wall can be so many things, genuinely representing your lifestyle, travels, pursuits, passion, nostalgia – you get the picture. While we’ve talked about creating a gallery wall with GreenBox artwork in the past – mixing and matching artists, combining themed items, including collections – our new framed giclee paper prints are another way to incorporate unique, fine artwork into your wall decor gallery collection. We’ve found inspiration from a few of our favorite resources to help you create gallery walls with GreenBox art prints. All paper art prints are available in our black or white frames with a white mat, or sold as single paper prints.

We love any excuse to get some friends together and have a good time. Whether it’s wine with the girls or a neighborhood potluck, fun is as far away as an Evite and cocktails! Party decor doesn’t have to be tedious and grandiose, it can be simple and DIY for major oohs and ahhs and without breaking the bank. One of the most popular and fun trends as of late is the photobooth backdrop which enables all your guests to take stylishly memorable (and hilarious!) pictures to record the unforgettable fun that was had. If this is no news to you, then how about the idea of using art as a photobooth backdrop? GreenBox Art + Culture has just the vibrant backdrop that will have already found a perfect home in your space as wall art decor. Let’s explore some photobooth backdrop options out there, shall we?

Are you a “big-time partier” that has the cash for awesome custom backdrops and parties on a monthly basis? If your M-O is to have parties that will go down as historical events, check out Smilebooth for their clever and creative backdrop options.

If DIY and thriftiness is your bag, check out some of the super cool sites that have tons of ideas in all levels of difficulty. One of our favorite go-to blogs for awesome DIYs is Oh Happy Day – check it out!

However, we’d like to give you an idea you may not have thought of that’s no extra work, and no added “decorations”. Our oversize adhesive wall murals cover a large area of your wall for very little cost, and they’re actually repositionable! They’re made of a durable fabric adhesive that displays the fine art detail and rich color we’re obsessed with. So, find the perfect mural for your taste and hang it up in your space for home decor that doubles as party decor. These are so large (sizes 54×54, 72×54, and 54×72) that they’ll provide a perfect backdrop for fun photos at your next party. If your mural’s normally in an area where furniture may be in the way for the best photos, try a temporary furniture rearrangement for the party. Or, grab a couple of friends to help you move your mural to a big blank wall with ample space for your guests to have their picture time, then move it back after the party to its permanent home. Just be sure to keep your mural clean on the adhesive side and use those extra hands from your friends during the transport!

 

Utopia by Melissa Loop 

Abstract Blocks by Melanie Mikecz

So, grab a bucket of fun mustaches and silly props and give our oversized adhesive wall murals a try in your home to keep it ready for a fun time any time. Have that impromptu party and your friends will have a blast while praising your ingenuity at using art as a photobooth backdrop!

When it comes to decorating one’s space, our priorities and budgets can change considerably throughout our lifetimes. What we’re into one season may be completely different come the next. Some of us prefer to spend more of our budget on the anchors of a room, like large furniture pieces to last for years, while others see value in accents that glamorize basic home elements that are considered part of the background. Regardless of your current design dilemma, there’s always room in everyone’s lifestyle for budget friendly and stylish decor. There are many places you may not have thought to seek out such splendid deals, so we’re here to spark a little creativity and treasure hunting excitement in your life!

We all need a place to sit and eat, but sometimes you can think out of the box and get stylish and creative results. Chairs meant for outdoor spaces can typically cost less than standard dining room chairs – especially during summer clearance sales. We found these adorable patio chairs on eBay for only about $40! They could easily be repainted and the cushions recovered for custom seating your guests will envy. Another high cost item that can be hard to swallow is an area rug that’s stylish and comfortable on your tired feet. You don’t have to settle for those synthetic, scratchy rugs you find at discount warehouses. Check out flash sites like Fab.com for some amazing and high design steals. This wool and silk blend below in a contemporary color palette was only $225 (retails for $1,200!) in 5’x8′! Lastly, don’t discount the power of a little elbow grease and ingenuity. We all know the fantastic furniture deals one can get at yard sales and places such as Ikea. While you can get some real longevity out of these finds, if you’re gentle and loving with your stuff, you may not find much that tickles your fancy. But, don’t give up hope! Websites like IKEA Hackers spotlight clever tweaks and transformations of the inexpensive furniture line from crafty people from around the globe – great inspiration! One budget friendly and stylish decor embellishment we found for furniture is a lovely fretwork from O’verlays – imagine the possibilities!

Budget Friendly and Stylish Decor

Regardless of your personal style, finding artwork that makes your space feel complete is a necessity. While the GreenBox Art + Culture family’s ultimate goal is to provide high quality fine art reproductions to every art lover’s home, we understand the tricky struggle it can be to find budget friendly and stylish decor. We feel you won’t find more detailed, hand-made art that so closely resembles the original artist’s work than our products. Through the years, we’ve added new categories to get these fine works of art onto more walls in larger and more affordable ways. Stretched canvas art provides a polished and sophisticated presentation, while our fabric wall decal material provides the same beautiful art in new ways with a lower price point. Our Designer Wall Decals, like “U Are Funky” by Melanie Mikecz, bring colorful detail and clarity to your walls in a fresh way. Our fabric adhesive material is much more durable and repositionable than the typical vinyl used in single color decals. Our Wall Murals, like “Poppies on Gray” by Rachel Austin below, bring fine art to your walls in a big way. With sizes 72×54″ and 54×54″ to cover a large part of your wall costing less than $200, creating a fabulous focal point is not out of the question. Lastly, our Letter Decals, such as “Screen Print Letters” by Methane Studios below, will most definitely make a statement in your space. With our Classic 17″ tall letters at only $19 each, and Epic sized 27″ tall letters at $39, you can say what you please to keep your decor and your budget completely on track.

Budget Friendly and Stylish Decor

Be sure to check out all of our adhesive Wall Decals and Wall Murals for fabulous fine art deals to keep you surrounded by high style beauty without blowing your budget.

It’s true that the classics always make a comeback, and to some enthusiasts they never go away. Many purists have inherited gorgeous mid-century modern furniture and adorned their homes with this stunning decor forever. However, many of us see the beauty of the style and have to scavenge or buy new reproductions to create a mid-century modern look in the home. Since we at GreenBox think a mix of items old and new that you love best represents who you are – this home decor style is one of our absolute favorites. In fact, one of our brilliant artists’ collections leans almost entirely toward this era. So, to finish off any hip and stylish room resembling the snazzy set of Mad Men, we suggest mid-century modern wall decor by Eleanor Grosch.

Mid-century modern furniture is sleek and unfussy, giving it the timeless quality we all love. A living room decorated in this style doesn’t have to be cold and sharp, we find that it can actually be cozy. To accent the cheeky dog wall art made up of geometric shapes in modern color palettes, we’ve found pieces that bring warmth to a room and don’t sacrifice comfort for clean style. Since our dog and cat mid-century modern wall decor by Eleanor Grosch comes in size options of 10×14, 18×24, and 30×40 (horizontal options, too) mix and match grouping looks just as stunning as one large focal point piece.

1 Mod Dog Greyhound, Mod Dog Pomeranian, Mod Dog Shadow by Eleanor Grosch 2 Cork Pendant by Kenroy Home 3 Petrie Leather Sofa from Crate & Barrel 4 Beni Ourain Rug from Pottery Barn 5 Nest of Tables from Heywood-Wakefield

 It doesn’t get much better than an exquisite teak Danish dining set in a fashionable dining room. With this contemporary style, sometimes less is more, bringing full attention to gorgeous key pieces while keeping the room open and sleek. We’ve combined these stunning selections below to create a polished finish. A retro wallpaper selection nicely sets off the oversized mid-century wall decor by Eleanor Grosch. With sizes up to 60×45, even the largest of wall spaces will be filled with style fitting for a different era.

1 Spear Wallpaper from Ferm Living 2 & 3 Teak Dining Chairs and Table from Vintage Danish Modern 4 Wild Pronghorn by Eleanor Grosch

Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a passing trend brought about by the new generation, mid-century modern decor will always have a place in the most stylish of homes.

A bird is known by its feathers.

Maybe it’s their symbol of freedom, or maybe it’s their feathers or song – something makes us love birds. Birds have long been a favorite in modern and classic home decor. While you can find textiles, ceramics, accessories galore filled with birds, bird themed artwork for the home is an added touch that can take your room in the modern, classic, or even rustic direction that is uniquely your style. Silhouettes, realistic depictions, and abstract interpretations of birds all have their place in contemporary bird themed artwork for the home.

GreenBox Art + Culture is drawn to artwork full of color and life. We find works that serve as starting points for your entire room’s decor and color palette, offering the perfect focal point for your wall. See a piece of artwork that speaks to you, then your room will fall into place around it. Birds have proven to be a popular theme in our current contemporary art choices. We continuously find images we love with birds as the subject, and there’s no expected decline in this fascination.

We’ve rounded up a sampling of our bird themed artwork for the home to give you some direction based on style. First, we’ve gathered some of our more whimsical art featuring birds that are sure to bring a smile to your face. OneAnna Todaro’s “Bluebird” features and angelic creature with a soft color palette. TwoLinda Ketelhut’s “Vintage Birdhouse” would go perfectly in a vintage, eclectic room. ThreeAngela Donato’s “Love Bird Pennant”  brings a feminine touch to its surroundings. FourShelly Kennedy’s “Welcome to Our Nest” will be right at home on your walls, making guests feel more than welcome.

Some of our abstract art choices featured here will bring color and a little wildness to your walls. OneAlberto Cerriteno’s “Chattering” has a neutral color palette, with a funky collection of patterned birds. TwoCarter Carpin’s “Patchwork Bird” is a vibrant kaleidoscope of colors that will energize your walls. ThreeJenny Kostecki-Shaw’s “Red Birdcages” features colorful birds that will instantly boost the uniqueness of your room’s design. FourFlora Bowley and Jennifer Mercede’s “Stalk” is filled with passionate brushstrokes in a current color palette of magenta and blue.

Our featured bird modern art is composed of more realistic and stylized birds. OneMeg Hunt’s “Terrarium Pals” is a graphic delight in a very contemporary color combination. TwoEleanor Grosch’s “Paisley Pheasant” is a mid-century modern piece with a folk art twist. ThreeFlora Bowley’s “Pretty in Pink” perfectly represents Flora’s unique style of intuitive painting with a fresh pink and bold black background. FourThe Mincing Mockingbird’s “Bullfinch” is one of many detailed, yet simplistic bird art pieces that, when grouped together, create a feature wall that is full of life and a touch of cheekiness.

It’s easy to go “overboard” in the nautical décor department. If you own a beach house or are lucky enough to live near the ocean, it’s simply expected to have at least a touch of marine accents throughout your home. Whether your home accessories are personal collections from antique shops, articles you’ve found washed up on shore, or fun and quirky ocean themed finds, we’ve got the wall décor to perfectly fit your nautical room décor for your beach house.

With traditional beach house décor, you should have no trouble finding salty seafaring accents that will blend flawlessly just based on theme. There’s such a general and pleasing color scheme in the nautical world that the majority of antiques and common nautical fare seem to be made to all go together. We’ve put together a board with traditional pieces to create inviting nautical room décor for your beach house to ensure no one will forget their goal of vacationing: to feel comfortable and relax. Brass and bronze fixtures pair perfectly with needlepoint pillows and our classic ocean themed artwork by Jack Dickerson.

1. Traditional Nautical Wall Art by Jack Dickerson 2. Bristol Bay Sunset Bronze Chandelier 3. Whale Tale Door Knocker 4. Ship Pillow & Anchor Pillow

For a crisper, more modern take on nautical room décor for your beach house, we’re drawn to graphic prints and clean lines. Quirky items that seem old-fashioned get an updated look with a coat of paint, like this mermaid wall hook. A traditional nautical light fixture is perfectly modern in a fresh aqua color, while a knotted rug in modern hues brings interest to the floor and continues the modern nautical look. Our artwork picks for this modern style include Eleanor Grosch‘s mid-century modern styled sea birds along with Cory McBee‘s contemporary graphic of an antique ship.

1. Seagull + Pelican by Eleanor Grosch & Come Sail With Me by Cory McBee 2. Assembly 3 Light Chandelier 3. Mermaid Anchor Wall Hook 4. Yellow Rope Rug

Finally, a gentleman wants to feel like the captain of his ship and quarters, so we’ve found some masculine nautical room décor for your beach house that’ll keep your room looking sophisticated and seaworthy. Keeping with darker shades of gray, white and silver accents will keep the look from being too dark. Dark wood continues the “old ship” feel and keeps the look classic. We recommend Danny Englander’s photography artwork to evoke an elegant maritime style that’s timeless and powerful. Paired with sleek accents and monochromatic textiles, this nautical room décor for your beach house is a handsome package.

1. Nautical Rigging Oversize Wall Mural by Danny Englander 2. Ship’s Hourglass 3. Maritime Charcoal Alpaca Throw 4. Rhoorkie Campaign Chair

Regardless of your style, we’re certain you’ll find your ocean themed artwork “soulmatey” to perfectly complete your nautical room décor for your beach house at GreenBox Art + Culture. Be sure to follow our Pinterest board “Nautical Room Décor for Your Beach House” !

But, take baby steps with your children to get them acquainted with the world right outside their doorstep. Look for events in your community to celebrate and work hard this Earth Day 2013 on April 22nd.

If you and your family get to travel, remind your children about the different climates and landscapes you’ve visited. Your own town may have a beach and a desert very nearby! On car trips, you’re unfortunately sure to see some litter and other evidence of people being careless with their surroundings. What a wonderful opportunity to encourage being responsible!

While your little ones may see and realize the damage that we can easily do to our lovely surroundings, they may not know how to help or prevent it. Earth Day is a perfect time to join a group in a cleanup effort in your neighborhood, a park, or beach. When even a small group joins together (like your family!) big changes can happen quickly. Search for events and group gatherings online for trash pickup and cleanup in your community.

Some other simple ways to get your kids involved in Earth Day 2013:

  1. Reuse and recycle plastic bags, and carry reusable totes to the store.
  2. Learn about your community’s recycle programs if you’re not already participating.
  3. Walk or ride a bike whenever you safely can instead of using your car.
  4. Pull weeds in the yard and garden instead of using herbicides.
  5. Plant a tree!

Remind them how fun it is to swim in clean water, play in a clean park, and walk down a clean sidewalk. Now, listen to their ideas on how to celebrate Earth Day 2013!
