Sketchy

I have been scouring my favorite local flea markets over the last few months, in the hopes of collecting some beautiful hand drawn sketches.  I'd love to use them as a gallery wall, incorporate a few into vignettes or perhaps include some for sale at Linen Haus.   I'm hitting the markets again this weekend - my fingers are crossed for the perfect finds.  :)  Regardless, these pictures are what inspired it all!

This tablescape from Ralph Lauren has all of the elements that I think make great style!

They also look fantastic in a Belgian setting...



OK, I must admit I am re-using this image from my previous post about Gorgeous Gallery Walls, but I think the gilded framing against the black and white sketches is stunning!

Do you like sketches or do you prefer artwork with more color?

A beauitful well done sketch can add a lot to a wall, I agree. Good luck in your searches this weekend, the thrill is in the pursuit so hope you enjoy!

I'm with you Barbara, love the renderings in nice gilded frames and hung in groups on the wall or a single one propped against a mirror on a console tale..it's such a beautiful and timeless look...
best of luck,

Omg, I love those gallery walls. Never have I seen examples so elegant.

I definitely can appreciate a good sketch, they definitely have a niche that only they can fill...I especially like them in more masculine rooms, dark/moody/leather-filled (c: I think my personal taste leans a little more towards bright colors...(c:

A good painting or Sketch enhances the beauty of the area & gives a relaxing feeling.

Love the hand sketches. The wall with the really large collection of big pieces is really fabulous. Have a great weekend, Barbara.

I love sketches--nudes, statuary, children, dogs--I think that the framing, but most especially the matting is super important. I love all of your wall choices. Mary
