Sizzle, Pizzazz and Options? Yes Please!

March 21, 2011

Today’s post will be kind of long because like Lucy, I’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do. This will sound undoubtedly wacky to some but for those who know me, it won’t. Yes. I’m a persnickety woman. Most designers are. And as a designer, I don’t like being told there’s only ONE way to do things. Design options are our BFF’s. But there comes a time, for the sake of business, commerce and harmony in the home, when you must concede and accept your reality, no matter how funky it proves to be.

Originally, the prints of FASHION+ART were meant to be produced in two sizes. Our 15.75 x 19.75-inch size, which has been featured on the website since the launch, and a more luxurious size of 19.75 x 27.5 inches, which we haven’t featured on the site until now for one simple and, to some, very silly reason.


This disdain of mine has been a big fat pain—and you know where, don’t you—for weeks. But more than that, it has deprived you, YOU, my customers and friends, of variety, range and options of your own. I really needed to get over it, as my girlfriend DC says, “with a quickness!” So, I am now officially over it and we are finally introducing the LARGER versions of our prints—a new world of display choices for the collections of FASHION+ART. Also, (sigh), a new drop box feature on the detail page of each print in the Gallery.

The image above features the entire BLACK & WHITE COLLECTION. For a bold and dramatic room like this, you need art that speaks the same language. These ladies give off serious drama, don’t they? Three prints are dominant at 19.75 x 27.5 inches while three hold their own at the smaller size of 15.75 x 19.75 inches. Mix and match to your hearts’ content.

This West Elm living room features a mix of collections—because you can do that—of Curious from the DIGITAL COLLECTION and Hot Melon from SOLITAIRES at 15.75 x 19.75 inches on each end. In the center is Anatomy x 8 from SOLITAIRES at 27.5 x 19.75 inches. Mix it up. Go with your flow. How could you possibly go wrong?

This is a Crate & Barrel living room featuring “Winter Plaid” and “Flow” from the SOLITAIRES COLLECTION. Both are shown at 19.75 x 27.5 inches. Sometimes it’s a color thing. Dabs of mustard yellow here and there lend just the right amount of heat to a cool, sleek space.

There’s no denying that your choices have now tripled. At least! The possibilities are infinite and that’s always a good thing, don’t you agree? In the days to come we’ll ogle more spaces and explore how FASHION+ART can add new swag and delight to your foyer, your bath, your office, any nook and cranny needing a shot of haute couture drama. FASHION+ART can step in, sporting a killer pump, and fill your spot with sizzle and pizazz! That IS your middle name, correct?
