Monday Musings: Black Squiggle Art

Dahlings! Oh how I missed you over our two day hiatus. Today I want to talk about something very near and dear to my heart. Black squiggle art. Who would have ever thought that kindergarten squiggles on a large canvas would be fine art? Well it is, so zip it. First of all, I have decorating rules to live by. One is that every space should have at least a touch of black. This unusual abstract piece would definitely fulfill that requirement. There is something whimsical yet masculine about these pieces and I think they add the perfect artistic touch to finish off these spaces. 



Do you larve as much as I do? I am brainstorming a DIY as we speak that could make this musing a straight up reality. Hmmm. Love you. Mean it. XOXO

  9. I appreciate the look but know my husband would never go for it. I love it against that beautiful rich green wall in the first picture. I think my kids could do this!

  10. I love it, showed one of my diy to the husband, and he said no... I'll try again!! I wanted to do an entire wall, though, that's why he got scared... we'll see!!

  17. I have always loved that hallway picture with the bench and the two paintings. Ugh I'm sure if I attempted a DIY it would look like my 5 year old nephew did it but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try? xoox
