Sally King Benedict - Charleston (the QUEEN in my opinion)
I hope one day I can own a piece from one of these amazing women!
I've been thinking about these pieces lately because there is a spot in my office that is perfect for a small abstract painting.
Now I'm going to go off on a tangent here for a second. I didn't major in interior design, but I did major in advertising/graphic design. The most important thing we were taught in school was white space... white space can make or break design. So I guess because of this I'm a big believer in the use of white space in interior spaces... just because there is a large blank wall doesn't mean you have to fill it! It's okay to have some white space aka blank walls. I think a lot of people are afraid of walls and feel like they have to put something on it. I'd rather have a large blank wall than a wall with an out-of-scale faux painting from Home Goods. Just my opinion.
Anyway, back to this little wall space in my office. Everything I just wrote above does not apply to this space, because right now it feels a bit off balance to me. Normally I wouldn't care that there wasn't anything there.. but because the window isn't centered I want to put something there. Am I confusing you??
I would love to create my own little abstract piece for this little bit of empty wall. I know that it takes a lot of talent to make real abstract art like the ladies above do. I am definitely not saying I can do what they do - not at all! Mine will be more like a craft project haha. But it will definitely be fun to make a little piece for that empty space.
And speaking of art, here are two pieces my grandmother did that sit inside my bookcase:
My desk sits facing the bookcases and window and I love seeing these pieces all day every day.
I'll definitely let you know how my abstract turns out and I will have my office reveal very soon!
