Kids’ Rooms

Aaron's room.As the time goes we’re getting more and more settled in. The house has became really nice and cozy.

Aaron's room.This week we’ve got the bedrooms of our kids finalized. The last touch was a pair of Kallax shelves from Ikea.

Aaron's room.The only things that have moved with us from these rooms are the beds. And while Anna’s bed came with a nice foam mattress, Arosha’s old spring mattress was totally destroyed from all the jumping that has commenced on it. So he’s got a nice new Casper.

Anna's room.Anna’s curtain are from our old bedroom. Aaron’s are new. She also has a mega collection of dogs on her wall.

Anna's room.Aaron has a venetian mask on the wall from our recent trip to Italy and Venice specifically. He also has a laminated world map which was his new year gift from a couple of years ago. And this year he got his own set of Nanoleaf lights.

Anna's room.

Old Painting

Painting by Takefumi Hori.Last weekend we finally decided to hang an old painting that we had up in our old apartment in the living room. Ever since our move it’s been rolled up, collecting dust behind our couch.

Custom frame.After the redesign in the living room that space on the wall in the hallway seemed empty and it proved to be an ideal spot for our painting. And it looks good with our old custom frame.

Paintings by J.C. Kugler

J.C. Kugler PaintingsWhen we went to Virginia Beach for the first time in 2004 we stumbled upon a small art gallery. We usually check those places out to see if they have anything that we would like to have in our apartment. I’m a big fan of contemporary, abstract art, but I haven’t seen anything that I would like as much as the work of J.C. Kugler that we saw in this gallery.

The father of J.C. Kugler is also an artist, and had his work at the same gallery. However we found that the work of the son was more to our taste, even though J. Kugler’s (father) work is equally impressive.

Anyhow, the first time we were there, we couldn’t really afford to buy anything, since it was the time when Alёna just lost her job. When we were there for the second time we didn’t really have any more empty space in our apartment, but we still stopped by the gallery again, to look at what they had there at the moment.

This time around however we had a new apartment, and a wall that was just asking for something like that. There were several different pieces and we picked out 2 that we thought would work the best for us. We ended up paying $450 for both of them framed, but we feel it’s worth it for a pair of original art works by a known artist. We wanted to get them for a long time now, so we finally did it.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

Takefumi Hori PaintingПошли в магазин, попросили плексиглас. Добавили по 2 инча на каждую сторону картины (сама картина 40 х 29 по-моему, а стекло 44 х 33). Дома отмерили по 1.5 инча от каждой стороны, просверлили по дырке. Приложили стекло к стене, отметили места где сверлить. Просверлив, вставили в стену якоря. Между стеной и стеклом — гайки высотой инча в 1.5. Прикрутили, получилось красиво. Надо будет сделать фотку, а то так ничего не понятно. )

Кстати, я думаю может мы ещё одну картину купим. В этот раз красную и длинную. Повесим ее горизонтально над диваном, а фотки перенесём на какое то другое место.

Посмотрим вобщем.
