So to start off this month’s post, let’s briefly look at the subtle differences between two different categories of art. This will enable two things: a) for us to be on the same “page” when it comes to discussing artworks on paper (Please, PLEASE forgive the awful puns in this post!) and (b) for you to impress all your friends with your insightful knowledge of the art world.
In our July issue, Little Rock artist Rebecca Thompson shares her vintage architectural elements she has collected. With an outdoor space this beautiful, we thought it would be the perfect color inspiration for today. This vignette offers a soft, natural palette that can translate to any space. The lavender color is so subtle, yet makes such an impact and the gray antique bench is the perfect accent among the dark greenery. Throughout her garden you’ll find vintage statues, finials, tools, benches, chimney pots, planters, and keystones—anything with a back story or bit of history to bring architectural interest to her garden. “I love mystery and the story behind all of these pieces,” she says. Where do you find your color inspiration? Read the full story online or you can find a copy of the July issue on newsstands now.
Davis Tillman, owner of Hot Springs’ famous antique shop, Tillman’s Antiques, has seen a lot of different collections and antiques over the years. However, his personal collection is one of primitive, vintage, and ball-worthy masks. Tillman developed an interest for masks of all kinds at a young age while he and his family were living in Washington, D.C. His colorful collection is our color obsession of the week, which includes shades of brown, red, orange, and hints of blue and gray. Do you have your own collection or have a love of antiques? Is your collection revolved around one color? Or a specific color palette? Find out more about Tillman’s Antiques or see our collections archive here.
