one room challenge: week four - art

Kayce Hughes  at work for the  Harding Art Show

Hi Friends!  We are in the home stretch of the One Room Challenge...hurray for week 4!!

We have all of our key pieces in place and the furniture arrangement is working nicely. Cushions and pillows are currently being made and we have now turned our attention to art and accessories. This is the fun part!  We are true believers that the final finishing touches and styling are what really bring the space together.

Charles Eames said it best and it's a motto that we here at Pencil & Paper Co. live by .........

I think that art is one of the single most important design elements in creating a space that is both interesting, layered and personal.  The focal piece of art in our guest room will come from my incredibly talented friend, artist and clothing designer Kayce Hughes.  In our home, I want the art that we collect to tell a story .... we often buy art while we are traveling ...usually at a flea market or vintage shop.  I love to be able to look at each piece and remember the experience of how it came to be ours.  I have been coveting Kayce's beautiful paintings for quite a while and am SO thrilled to have a painting designed just for me in our guest room.  The best part of custom is that we are able to outline for Kayce some of our goals for the art. 

Kayce has style in spades. She is the epitome of chic both in her personal style and the art that she creates.  I love her abstract..... etherial compositions and the effortless relaxed "vibe" of her paintings. In life and art....... Kayce manage's to make it all look effortless.

The great news is, you too can have your own Kayce Hughes piece!  We have shared some of our favorites that are currently for sale on her website and can't wait to unveil her custom piece created just for us and the One Room Challenge!
