Luxurious Art Work
When Rise Art got in touch to see if I’d like to own some art from their wonderful online boutique, the timing couldn’t have been better. We were just about to finish our renovation project to create our master suite of dreams. This summer we decided to embark on transforming our bathroom and bedroom, whilst also creating a walk in wardrobe and en-suite. So I had been on the look out for those all important finishing touches and decoration to really make a statement whilst making the space our own.
I am ashamed to admit, we didn’t own a single piece of art before I got to choose the art work of my wildest dreams from Rise Art. But I adore art and used to have a real passion for painting in a previous life (I can’t say I was any good at all, but a girl can dream right??). I love ethereal, whimsical, bold and colourful pieces. Plus I knew exactly where I wanted to have a statement painting to really bring our bedroom together. It always helps to imagine a spot for a piece before searching for one I found.
How To Choose Your Art Piece
Rise Art were utterly amazing for novices like us. We didn’t have a clue where to start, what to choose or how to know what exactly is a good art work. Luckily Rise Art only list the most talented of artists and list not only paintings, but prints and photographs too. I immediately decided I’d love a painting, so this is how our selection process began. Rise Art teamed us up with curator Rebecca who guided us through the process with ease and enthusiasm. She asked us to set up an account and to tell her the style, medium, size and subject matter we were looking for. Then to get browsing the site and save our favourite artists and pieces into our wish list.
She could then get a good idea of what we are looking for and could take a look at our favourite pieces before having an in-depth chat over the phone. It worked so well, that many of the artists we had found, Rebecca also recommended to us, along with many others. After much deliberation, my husband and I decided on two beautiful pieces by the same artist; Magdalena Morey. We fell head over heels for her strong brush work and abstract landscapes, not to mention her use of colour and even gold leaf detailing. We were in love.
Next was to place our order and decide on whether we wanted to have the pieces framed by Rise Art. We opted for a more modern sleek look and hung them without a frame. I hope you’ll agree they look really beautiful in our new room.
Tip Top Service
Rise Art were brilliant in communicating to us during the shipping process and the pieces were really securely packaged. We were ready to burst with excitement when they arrived. We couldn’t get them displayed quick enough. I really cannot recommend their service enough, from the first contact to the delivery. The pieces looked and sounded just as described on their listing and we pinch ourselves every time we see them. What a treat.
The Perfect Wedding Gift
Art work really is the perfect wedding gift. A stunning painting, print or photograph really will stand the test of time and can be a great investment piece. Whether you are looking to buy a piece for your beloved, or as a gift for one of your favourite couples, art is always going to be so well received, I can guarantee. Whatever your budget, I am certain you will find the art work of your dreams with Rise Art, whose collection of pieces is growing all the time.
