Adventurous Unusual Painting and Decorating Ideas

13 Jul 2015 
Anybody can pick a color and paint a wall, but if you're a brave soul who really wants to up the ante (while avoiding hard-to-remove wall treatments), try one of these envelope-pushing ideas.

When we toured Emily's Houston home we were floored by her show-stopping bright blue paint job. It really takes her already-cute living room over the edge into fantastic. The sharp angles create a focal point for the room -- almost like a spotlight -- highlighting the collection of books and art on display.

Who says only your walls get to have all the fun? Friend of AT, Mat Sanders' Brooklyn home features painted parquet floors! We love how the color really perks up what can be a dated design.

This Spanish home from Egue Seta (above and below) has not one, but three colorful ombréd walls. We love how this almost looks colorblocked, but the ombre technique makes the transition from one color to the other look softer, more organic and helps the contrasting colors feel less harsh when placed next to each other.

Check out Kelly's smart, subtle yet still quirky faux molding. She not only adds interest and visual texture to her boxy room, she also lengthens her walls and brightens her ceiling.

This hallway (spotted at Lonny) is certainly not for the faint of heart. It takes major bravery to try a look like this, but given that hallways are usually a snooze, it's refreshing to see them getting some decor attention for a change.

Who except true pioneers would dare paint a classic Victorian black? Roger and Chris really show their stellar style before you even walk in the (bright pink!) front door.

So, do you dare? What's been your most adventurous paint project?

Artists paint light using 3D printers and twisted video walls

13 Jul 2015 
Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi's 'Sliced Light'

Who said that you had to paint light by waving an arm around? Certainly not Ekaggrat Singh Kalsi and Daniel Canogar, both of whom have created art using some decidedly unusual tech. Kalsi's project generates floating color portraits thanks to a modified 3D printer -- as you'll see in the clip below, it's akin to forming a hologram line by line. Canogar's work, meanwhile, uses twisted, mobius-like LED tiles as video walls that produce unique (and occasionally mind-bending) effects at different angles. You probably won't see these pieces in person, but they're proof that light-based art holds a lot of untapped potential.

Arts & Entertainment :: BeSimply…Autumn Skye Morrison

13 Jul 2015 
"She" arrived at a small boutique in the lower Gibson's, located on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. It was a cool and crisp evening and the sun was beginning to set. The store, Costal Creativity, welcomed "She" and "He" in and presented itself as a playful stage for the creations of local artists. As "She" entered, a large tree like structure filled with these expressive hats captured her attention. The variety of textures and colors created a canopy of fanciful head adornments. "She" intently studied each hat, wondering which one would come home with her someday.

Then, "He" stopped and looked at the wall and said with a big smile, "Triplets." A painting entitled, "The Significance of Three"

"She" studied the canvas and the three bare milky white bodies all appearing to be a different reflection of self laying across a bed of leaves. "She" noticed the three golden rosettes embedded on the painting. It was not until "she" looked closer, when "She" saw the many pages from an old book creating the background and a metaphorical wall filled with the answers to someone's questions.

"She" smiled at "He" appreciating his adoration for the feminine and his ability to always enjoy her beauty. While, "She" was still trying to make sense of her own understanding of the feminine essence and how to further embrace the collective feminine energy.

As "She" moved deeper into the store, another painting captured her attention, "Work in Progress". It perfectly described her own sense of self and current understanding of her essence. Her eyes began to move around the store taking in this artist's work. "She" felt an inner connection with each piece and then asked Rychalle, the operator of the store, "Who is the artist?", as she pointed to one of the paintings. She replied, "Autumn Skye from Powell River".

When "She" looked down on the counter there was Autumn's card, it had eight images that further expressed the feminine and one image in particular that stopped "She" and almost left her breathless.

It was entitled, "Timeless Keepers"

It held all the symbols and messages that "She" embodies and holds sacred in her soul and heart. The canvas visually told the story of "Her" journey. It was as if Skye had painted this picture for her. "She" slowly turned the card over and the words just lifted themselves off the paper. "She" read it silently to herself,

"I paint in celebration of this fantastic adventure. I paint to Inspire, and to be inspired. Each canvas takes me on a journey, and as my paintbrush follows, each time I am lead back to my center.

My Paintings are a mirror, a reflection of our light and shadow, our feminine essence, and our ancient divinity."-Autumn Skye Morrison

"She" took a deep breath and smiled..."She" had found a soul sister. "She" gently folded the card in half and placed it in her hand bag. When, "She" returned to the cottage "She" wrote Autumn and asked if it would be possible to feature her work and expressed how she felt they were kindred spirits.

On the day, "She" was leaving for the City of the Angels, she took the ferry back to Vancouver with the one and only, DoktorJ. This was the second time they spent together in each others physical presence. As "She" seemed to ramble on about the large rock that looked like ET and the universe. DoktorJ just graciously listened and for some reason suddenly pulled out this card from his backpack and handed it to "She".

It was the Timeless Keepers by Autumn Skye. "She" smiled and asked, "Do you know her?"

He replied, "Yes, She is amazing and I am going to work with her in the future." "She" shared how this image in particular was a reflection of her. All the elements and all the messages spoke to her.

"She" went to hand the card back to DoktorJ and he said, "Its yours!" With a big, "Thank you!", "She" tucked it in her journal with a contentment and gratitude in her heart for the delivery of such a special gift.

"She" looked forward to hearing from Autumn and sharing her work with the world. It was in this interview that, "She" had a deeper understanding of the Autumn and her interconnection to the universal and cosmic feminine.

"She" would like to introduce you to Autumn Skye Morrison...a soul sister, a shining light and an inspiration to the divine feminine dancing within "She".

"She" sends, a deep Bow to her soul sister and with this message, "Thank you Autumn for your inspiration and continued evolution and expression of the divine feminine, the divine masculine and the polarities that tell the story of our existence on this beautiful planet earth."

*note what was discovered by "She" in this interview is that this painting Timeless Keepers was painted in Los Angeles at a gallery in Downtown LA..."She" had sat out in front of that gallery after a profound dinner with some friends and decided that there was some powerful energy in that gallery that night but "She" needed to go home and integrate all that "she" had received earlier in silence.

One person has told she, "You can not run from your destiny." "She" would agree.
