Update: Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Van. Check back on May 3 for another great giveaway.
Now that spring has finally arrived, the time is right to shake up your decor. Along with new paint colors and spring cleaning to-dos, why not update your home by starting an original art collection? It’s easier than you think — and this month’s giveaway with affordable original art retailer The Tappan Collective can help.
The Tappan Collective founders Jordan Klein and Chelsea Neman started their company to make it easy for art lovers (and art newbies!) to easily find and buy original artwork from emerging artists. One lucky Design Happens reader will win their choice from the three original pieces featured in this post. Read on to enter for a chance to win.
Option one is a framed print of this Moroccan city scene (above) captured by photographer Shay Spaniola. Animal lovers might be more drawn to a framed copy of Will Robinson-Scott’s “Mastiff,” which shows off the bond between a pair of dogs and their owner.
For those who’d rather fill their walls with whimsy, the third choice is a framed print of Evan Robart’s bright “Popsicles.” Doesn’t it make you think of a hot summer day?
So, what’s the best way to choose? Tappan’s founders say it all boils down to one thing: Choose pieces that give you an emotional response. “I think what we say most is to keep it simple. Don’t be intimidated by the history or what it means; just go with your gut and see what you respond to. Once you start building a collection, you’ll be amazed by the patterns that will emerge,” Chelsea says.
