November 2015 Art Crate Review & $15 Off Coupon Code!

I’ve been subscribing to Art Crate for a couple months in order to build a little art wall in my living room. (If you’d like to try out a subscription, you can save $15 if you use my coupon code LisaP15!)

Art Crate sent me some prints to choose from and then this fun package arrived at my door:

Print in Natural Frame by Sylvie Lee
Verdict: Love!
I love these dreamy soft type of abstracts and the color on this is beautiful. It makes me think of looking through a forest in a dream. Sylvie Lee sells her art to numerous popular retailers like West Elmand Domino Magazine.  There are so many beautiful pieces on her site. This print is gorgeous and something I would have chosen for myself.  I paid $54 for it and I’m quite happy with it.

I opted for November to be my last print for a awhile, which would bring my pretty little gallery to 3 pieces of art. I wanted to leave some room for some Christmas décor.
Art Wall
I added a couple Target ornaments to my wall and I’ll fill in the rest with Christmas cards for a cheerful Holiday display. After the New Year, I’ll have to decide what else to do with it. Do I subscribe to one more print from Art Crate, make some of my own art to fill in the blanks or do something entirely different? What do you think I should do?

October 2015 Art Crate Review & $15 Off Coupon Code!

After receiving a box from Art Crate in September, I decided to subscriber for a few months in order to create my own little art installation in my living room. (If you’d like to try out this curated art subscription, you can save $15 if you use my coupon code LisaP15!)

I fell in love with the print in my first box and was interested to see what my second would bring. After you select your subscription type, Art Crate sends you an email with 3 prints you can choose from. I received my email and sadly none of the choices spoke to me. They just weren’t colorful or compelling enough for the look I wanted. I responded that I just wasn’t feeling them and voila, they sent me 3 new options, all of which I liked. I chose my favorite and waited.

My box arrived.

After the Storm in Natural Frame by Christine Lindstrom of Mai Autumn
(Retail: $54.00)
Verdict: Love!
I chose this one so I knew I’d love it, but in person it’s even prettier. Dream-like images and surrealism tend to appeal to me and I’ve been trying to add more color to my Victorian era apartment that sadly gets very little light. You can buy this print and other lovely ones from Christine’s shop, Mai Autumn. I really like that Art Crate added the artist info right on the back of the piece. It makes it feel like a little gallery. With a coupon code, I paid $43.20 and the regular cost of this piece is $54.00. It’s definitely a bit pricey, but the frame is nice quality and I like learning about these great new artists. This isn’t a sub that I would subscribe to indefinitely, but I’m happy with picking up a few pieces to liven up my space.

So here is the progress on my Art Installation:
Wall Installation
I’ve co-opted my fancy pants Christmas Card holder and turned it into a mini gallery. I may pin up some more cards around the framed artwork or put up some ornaments, embroidery or paper crafts. It really depends on what interesting things pop up in my path.

I’ll be getting one more framed print from Art Crate and then I think I’ll have enough for my project, so be sure to check back and see what art pops up for November.

What type of artwork do you put up in your space?

September 2015 Art Crate Review, Giveaway & 20% off Coupon!

Today I’ve got another unique subscription for you. The amazing folks at Art Crate graciously sent me a box to review, a 20% coupon code for you and are sponsoring a giveaway for a free piece of art! For details on entering the giveaway, and info on the coupon code jump down below. Now let’s dish about this sub.

Art Crate sources art from around the world based on your personal style, and sends you a piece each month. Their Curators “understand home decor, from classic styles to contemporary looks. They’ve gone through extensive training and have hands-on experience to know which art, sizes, and colors will look best for your home.”

First you fill out a fun, easy survey then decide what size prints you want (Small, Medium or Large). After, you choose whether you want your art framed; frame options include: Natural, Black, White, or Curators Choice.

This sub is set up to grow your collection at your pace. When you sign up and set up an account, you can log in and pause or resume your subscription as you like. You can also change the size of your art prints at any time.

With a normal sub, the curator will send you an email with 3 pieces they’ve selected and you’ll be able to choose your favorite or let them choose for you. Because this one was for a review, I just filled out the survey and anxiously wondered what the Art Crate folks would send me. Would it be my style? Would they get me? Would it totally clash with my living room?

This box arrived.

(Retail: $54.00)
Verdict: Love!
How did they know? They matched my living room colors and taste *exactly*. The frame and art are high quality and I’m thoroughly impressed with what I received.

I have this large frame designed to clip greeting cards that I have been meaning to turn into an art installation and this piece is perfect. I’ve signed myself up so I can get at least another print or two to work with it.
My Wall
If you opt for framing the sub can get a little pricey, but they are excellent quality frames and I do think they are worth the price and comparable to what you’d pay for framed prints. I love that you get artwork from artists around the world that you might not otherwise find.

If you just bought your first home and have empty walls this is a great sub for you. Art Crate doesn’t currently offer gift subscriptions but they are working on it. I really hope they get that up and running because an Art Crate gift subscription would make a great wedding or house warming gift.

What do the walls in your home look like? Bare? Covered in photos? Chock full of art?
