I try to make an effort to decorate my home apart from the generic Home Goods wall decor and in working hard to support local and small business owners, I’ve filled my place with artwork I’m absolutely in love with.
Father John Misty & Wilco
It’s so easy to find cool artwork in Chicago. I was snooping around Galerie F trying to find a bear champ print from one of my favorite artists, JC Rivera, when I came across these two pieces. They were having a Cyber Monday sale and I had been looking for something to spruce up my bedroom walls in Chicago and I couldn’t help myself. Galerie F is one of those places you end up walking around for hours looking through everything three times in case you missed something; I couldn’t be happier that I snatched these two up before I couldn’t anymore. If you’re still interested in the Wilco print, it’s still available!
My best friend Danielle came into town for a weekend before I left Chicago to visit and we ended up getting wristbands for the Pitchfork Music Festival in the west loop (Thanks Val!). I was really only concerned with seeing A Tribe Called Quest and wasn’t planning on the vendors being as cool as they were. I got this Tame Impala print to add to my musical collection, only to realize after the fact that it was made for the show in Cleveland at the House of Blues. Fate? I think so. I’ve been dying to get another Bubble Process poster since.
West Side Market Herbs and Spices
I really wanted to get this framed print after the first Cleveland Flea and I couldn’t bring myself to spend $50 on it. Cuyahoga Collective always reels me in with their products. I went to another Flea and was still in love, but ended up spending my money on furniture instead. My third and most recent Flea trip I finally pulled the trigger, and I’m so glad I did. It was exactly what my kitchen needed, the frame is beautiful, and I find myself reading about the herbs every time I’m in my kitchen.
Edgy Horned Badass
Another Cleveland Flea find, this little shop of darkness is one of the coolest things I’ve discovered in this city. Snakes + Acey’s have some amazing products; as soon as I saw this girl I fell in love (and boy does she look awesome on my dresser). She doesn’t seem to be sold on the website any longer but in non-print related news- I need this shirt.
I Am Grateful For The Dark
After seeing my edgy horned badass in my room, my good friend Ally mentioned that a former sorority sister (and family friend of hers) had a sister who made some badass prints that were right up my alley in Colorado. Cue, Seeds then Roots. It was hard to pick just one, but the dark and twisty in me instantly attached myself to this beautifully simple piece.
So there you have it, a little walk through some of the art in my home. Are you an avid Etsy print buyer, or do you scavenge around your city for some wall love?
