Awesome Art Print Books

Just wanted to share a little gem of an art find...  Have you guys seen The Custom Art Collection books curated by Jamin and Ashley Mills of The Handmade Home blog??

There are three books: Art for the Contemporary Home, Art for the Traditional Home, and Art for the Eclectic Home.  Each one is filled with 40 art prints by uber talented artists that you simply tear out (nice clean perforated edges on heavy card stock paper) and place into an 8x10 frame.

It was hard for me to pick which book I wanted to order because each collection appeared to have some really beautiful prints but the art on the cover of Art for the Contemporary Home totally swayed me.

I LOVE the print in the bottom right-hand corner (by Ashley Mills).  It's called "Colorado Sky" and it truly does look exactly like a Colorado sky at sunset.  Colorado is near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, so the artwork had me at hello.

When I received my book it was super hard to pick out which prints I wanted to hang because I was drawn to so many of them.  I settled on a few that looked great together and set the others aside to rotate through when I feel like seeing some new art on the walls.

They definitely added some pizzazz to my office space and they make me smile when I see them - which for me is the true test of art.

Each book contains a write-up on the featured artists so you know whose art you're hanging up in your home.  Love that!

Isn't it amazing that you can get 40 prints for just $17?  It's hard to find one art print for that price!!  What a wonderful way to be introduced to so many great artists.

So awesome. This is a perfect example of something that I would spend waaaaay too much time trying to commit to which one I would hang. Then I'd decide to do all of them and I'd end up with a giant gallery wall. Oh wait, I did do that. Hence, the 900 photos in my living room and the wall of flowers in my hall. lol What a great idea. Your office is looking so cheery! I love that tiny canvas on your desk.
