Mad Men Modern
The very first mood board features my favorite color: Moody Blue. Deep dark and dramatic, this rich blue is like a walk at midnight, the deepest part of the river, flowing like the royal blue ink in an glass ink pot. Harmonizing beautifully with wood accents, deep walnuts, mid century modern inspired decor. Compliments the earthy tones of burnt orange, terracotta, sunshine yellow and off whites.
Few things are more effective at transforming a house into a home than a beautifully curated galley wall. Filled with nostalgic photographs, carefully chosen frames, and treasured artworks, no two are the same. While that’s surely part of the allure, it also means planning a statement wall can be a daunting challenge. To make things easier, here are some of my tips to help you put together your perfect gallery wall.
Support real art. Follow real people on social media, who create. Follow local Etsy craftspeople and support local art galleries, craft markets. Support your musicians, artists, jewelers, knitters, crafters, potters, poets, painters, sculptors. You will be able to share in the creativity of their everyday journeys, not just the pretty staged picture at the end. ENGAGE at any level. Share our heartbreak too. As makers, we are deeply grateful for the love you share with us.
Scandinavian-bohemian combo is a delectable blend of a scaled-back and insanely stylish version of the free-spirited aesthetic set within the confines of a clutter-free zone. Maybe it's our perpetual state of wanderlust that resulted in this style, maybe it was the need to add color to the neutral, but the end result is this artful mix of a cool "undone" yet curated boho-chic look.
When choosing a piece of abstract art, choose one that gives you immense joy and excitement all at once. Choose one which makes your eyes dance along its shapes, or colors which draw you in. Choose bold art to make a statement and choose a style that speaks your language. Find large scaled abstracts to create drama, or small ones to balance a room.
My love affair with color started young. Like most kids, I loved the vividness of colors and spent hours and hours getting my hand dirty. As I grew into an adolescent, the allure of paint was heady. On my 10th birthday, my father bought me a shiny new box containing 6 pots of the most beautiful poster colors I had ever seen. A simple brush and a mixing pallette. I remember opening the box and inhaling the pungent odor of the viscous paints. Red, blue, green, yellow, brown, black and white.
Soul Curry is a piece of my soul in a spiced amalgamation of flavor, texture, forms and shapes to bring forth art which showcase my Indian roots in a modern day context. My style is best descibed as Mad Men Modern. I love bold saturated color, rich textures, layers of expressions and fun whimsical art that stems from all that surrounds me
