GUEST POST: Design Shuffle

Here is another guest post: this time from an online place for interior designers - Design Shuffle - and it is "all about expressing personality through decorating with art".


Hello all! It's Mari from Design Shuffle, a special online place for interior designers, design professionals and enthusiasts. With thousands of photos to look through each day, this website is your one-stop shop for decorating ideas!

Today's guest post here at Art and Interior is all about expressing personality through decorating with art. We're all drawn to specific pieces of art for as deeply personal reasons. Our artful choices reflect our passions and individual personalities. Whether it’s the color, scale or subject matter that catches the eye, art can imbue your living environment with your own personality and sense of style. I hope these appealing spaces will inspire you to add the wonderful element of art to your home.

One look at the focal wall of this light-filled foyer and we know that family and nature are two of this homeowners passions. What a lovely gallery wall dominated by photographic art. Here, it's all about family and natural elements.

Another artfully decorated foyer shows off an eclectic personality with a love of all things vintage. And just so you know the inhabitants of this space don't take themselves too seriously, a few quirky touches are on display.

Art is the focal point in this totally appealing sunroom. Here it's all about the birds with an eclectic collection of avian-centered artwork.

Is it a love of architecture, history or movement and life that drives the personality who inhabits this space? A few unexpected touches complete this stylish, yet comfortable living room design.

Set against sandy walls, seahorse paintings give this space an understated coastal feel and a sense of easy living also reflected in the rest of the decorative elements.

Need dining room design ideas? Bright colors and simple artwork give an impression of warmth and lively style. The velvety upholstery on the dining chair backs is a beautiful work of textile art.

This artist's space is all about a love of the ocean and a deep understanding of its ever-changing color. Unframed and set against a background of pure white, the work speaks for itself.

Calm and soothing, an eclectic space in shades of blue sets the stage for a collection vintage botanical prints. This living room is one of those special interior designs that offer a retreat from the busy cares of everyday life.

Love the idea of making big collages with picture frames! I used to have one in my old apartment, but it was nowhere near as pretty as these ones!
