I get a lot of imagery hit my inbox each week…
but nothing has ever been quite as stunning as these shots – from the new Urban Road 2015 winter collection. I still stare at them, marvel at them, drool over them and generally feel overwhelmed by how freakin’ breathtaking they are. And in today’s post I’m showing you some of the best imagery from the just-landed range.
Not only that, my lovely readers, but you’ll also have the chance to get your hands on a piece. I know; it’s almost too much to bare! Hold on tight and let’s take a look at these amazing artworks – and read on for instructions on how you can win one.
Urban Road has been a go-to destination for lovers of affordable canvas art for years, but I seriously think this new series, called Sanctuary, kicks things up a notch. The team are taking no prisoners with this winter offering, which Creative Director Suzie Atkin tells me is inspired by the moody, dramatic and passionate colours of a wild winter.
“With the anticipation of the coming spring season,” Suzie elaborates. “Every season we endeavour to expand the variety in our artwork collection and add something new that we haven’t tried before. Using new colours, textures and styles to create wildly beautiful pieces of art”.
There’s definitely a new energy to these pieces that I’m responding to. There’s still loads of colour at play but there’s a depth to them and they’re a bit less playful than previous collections from the brand. I see a lot of colourful art that feels really juvenile, but that’s not happening here. This collection showcases colour in a whole new (and sophisticated) way.
Suzie’s fave pieces from the collection are Farewell (at the top of this post) and Meticulous (below).
Art does some incredible things to a space that other pieces of decor just can’t do. Because it takes up so much visual real estate, it’s a great opportunity to get daring by making a wall in your home the focal point.
It’s a wise idea to use art as a starting point in a new space, too – pulling colours from it and using them to dictate pieces of furniture or soft furnishings for the room.
Suzie says that art adds personality to a home and should be approached with fun in mind.
“It is the one thing in your home that really says something about you,” she explains. “Art can be a great focal point in a room, creating drama, warmth or adding character. Have fun with your decorating; I love walking into a room that makes me smile”.
