Remember when I posted about how badly I wanted a large piece of colorful abstract art? Well, apparently, my super-talented best friend (who just happens to be an artist) read the post, because look what she painted for us!
Isn’t it beautiful?! It was a Christmas gift, but we just finally got to bring it home after our trip to Cape Cod in August. I had shown Alisa some pieces I liked and suggested a few colors, but the rest was all her, and it is absolutely perfect.
It fits perfectly into our living room, which I suppose I might as well show you, so you can see the where the painting lives. (If you’re interested in seeing what the living room looked like when we first moved in, there are photos in this post.)
Please do not judge us for how shlubby our furniture looks. The two beige couches are old, and the Ikea Kivik chaise … Well, it came that way. It’s comfy, but not super cute.
As you can see, this room doesn’t really have an official color scheme. Anything goes!
Hey, look! It’s my gold Ikea Vittsjo hack!
Those two framed maps are my Cape Cod treasure and ghost maps. They may be my second favorite thing in the room. They live in what a friend recently called my “ocean corner.”
There are two Cape Cod maps, a gold seahorse, a coral lamp, a watercolor-y pillow and an octopus. And I didn’t even notice I put them all together, I SWEAR. I guess I just miss living near the coast, so I brought the coast to Atlanta subconsciously, ya know?
Oh, and there’s my kitty cats! (Can you spot both?) And our midnight blue front door!
And there’s one more photo of the painting, because it’s the bomb. Thanks, Alisa!
