My husband and I don’t always agree on art.
Like Rick loves this Van Gogh reproduction we once bought.
I don’t love it. I don’t know why I agreed to it. I can only imagine that I was tired of looking for art for our first apartment and said something like, “Fine. Buy the Van Gogh floral thingy. I don’t care anymore. I’m dehydrated. I’m starving. I feel weak. Just buy it!”
I have never had the highest of artistic standards. In my 20′s, my bestfriend and I stapled a cheetah print cloth from a Halloween costume to our wall and called it art. But now I’m just a wee bit older than 24 and I only want to hang things I truly love.
Since I won’t hang the Van Gogh and Rick won’t get rid of it, it’s just propped up on this dresser.
A floral reminder that marriage is all about standoffs. I mean, compromise.
But I just learned about a much easier way for Rick and I to pick art for our new home. Art that we both love. It’s called ARTtwo50 and it’s ridiculously easy and brilliant.
You download the free app on your iPad and take a photo of the wall space where you hope to hang some amazing piece of art. I took a photo of my bedroom and first chose the size of the artwork…
Then I was able to shop by artist or just swipe through their recommendations. And you get to see every piece as if it was hanging in your home. Look…
Isn’t that cool? Then I can email any of these images to a friend or post on Facebook before I buy and get feedback. That’s right. Your ex-boyfriend from 5th grade can weigh in on artwork for your current home. I love this world.
All the artwork is $250 so you don’t have to worry about falling in love with a $5,000 painting, plus free shipping and returns. Plus, it’s all original artwork so it’s a great way to support artists.
Because it would be cruel to tell you about this amazing app and then not offer you a chance to win some sort of gift certificate, the good people at ARTtwo50 are offering two $100 gift certificates. Yay!
