Inspirations on the Horizon: Coastal Art Within Reach

Bahamian Row Boat with Oars, Giclee by one of our favorite artists.

Have you ever walked into a room and become mesmerized by one incredible painting? The colors so vivid and the mood so dramatic that it transformed the room and reminded you of your favorite place. That's what a painting can breathes new life into the room, establishes a mood and feeling. Your art should be a reflection of what you are passionate about. People who live their lives with passion, surround themselves with the things they love and are passionate about... their work, family and friends..,They celebrate their lives. For us, it's the sea and all the beauty in nature. Not everyone can collect an original oil by their favorite painter but, today, Giclees are making owning incredible art much more affordable. Giclees are a process of taking the original art and reproducing it on a canvas or paper. Here are some of our coastal favorites.

Weekend Woof 3.12.12:
"I Smell Summer!"

Anticipation - Just the thought of summer coming fills me with excitement – long, warm, fun-filled days spent with my favorite people - I know it’s almost here – the weather is warming, the smell is in the air and I see the preparations being made. I so look forward to these days – long walks on the beach, the smell of fresh- caught fish on the grill, endless Frisbee tosses, and all of my favorite feet to sit on when the day winds down with a gathering around the fire, Oh and, of course, when my people are more present, they can’t help indulging my request for continuous belly rubs. Spring has sprung - It’s a dog's life and hey, it’s good!

Inspirations on the Horizon: Coastal Bedrooms

The bedroom is the most personal room in your home. It may not be a room seen often by others but it is where you go to unwind and be yourself, which is why it should reflect what you love and who you are. A coastal bedroom can come in many variations from warm and tropical to cool and seaside, all that matters is that it is a place where you can find some rest and solitude.
