Spotlight ~ Art I love…


The other day I received my daily post from The Foundry, and was instantly in love with the artwork of Jill Ricci










Jill Ricci is a mixed-media artist based in New York City. I love how she layers paper, graffiti and text, with gold leaf and even beads. The Moroccan theme on this collection is especially interesting. Each time you visit one of her pieces you see something different and new. As Jill simply puts it “I hope that the person viewing my work will linger, trying to discover hidden imagery and text and depending on their life experience, find their own meaning or interpretation.”










Here is a look at some of her past collections…










I could use one of her pieces as the starting point to design an entire room! You can read more about Jill Ricci on her website found here. Jill Ricci is also the co-director & co-owner of Parlor Gallery located in Asbury Park, NJ.


If you have not heard of The Foundry yet, you should definitely take some time to visit their site here. They put out a daily post featuring home and lifestyle products at incredible prices…some items offered at up to 70% off! Each daily post includes 4-7 different events, offering selections of products from a variety of home living categories. The items in each “event” are offered on a 3 day (72 hour) basis…so if you like it, buy it! because it will not last for long. Check it out and let me know what you think.


What kind of artwork do you have in your home? What are some of your favorite home design resources?
