Custom Lobby Bicycle Art

Art Dallas customized an antique bicycle for this beautiful lobby space. This was a first for the Art Dallas design team. We created several custom features for this corporate space. 

This client shared our love for antiques and mixed era spaces.  The French racing bike was well loved before it became the center of attention in the lobby.

The bike itself had several parts removed so it could hang on the wall as a work of art. This French racing bike is beautiful in its own right so the original colors and logos were not changed. However, it needed some custom flair so we created a hand-stained wood box to mount it to the wall as a beautiful statement piece. 

In addition to the bike frame alterations, Art Dallas created a working feature on this now stationary bike. The bicycle wheel was transformed into a working clock.  Which now sits behind the reception desk reminding everyone that it's always time to ride! 

A large frame was created for the hallway for the space. The wood panels with the bike chain served as accents around an existing work of art, making it feel much more road-worthy.

Use your walls as a canvas

Wall mural designs can speak volumes about the tastes and personalities of the heritage of the spaces they occupy; they also can tell the story of the owner, infusing the space with character like a piece of art.

Vinyl murals provide a lasting and timeless look in addition to, or in-lieu-of, traditional media. Art Dallas vinyl murals are fully customize-able allowing for the client’s imagination to be fully developed into a lasting impression.  

At Art Dallas, wall murals come in every look you can think of, from classic, neutral or minimalistic, to bohemian, bold, and artsy. Digital printing has enabled revolutionary changes, bringing murals up-to-date with exciting designs. Unlimited color palettes are available and there are no restrictions when it comes to pattern size, resulting in designs that are big and brilliantly vibrant.

Mix in antiques

The most dynamic, contemporary interiors are not confined to artwork of any singular look or period. Combining pieces that vary in period, shape, form, color, and culture and arranging them harmoniously creates interest, timelessness, and even some whit. We love the warmth, history, and grandeur that antiques can bring. Art Dallas has the perfect pieces that will give your space the right amount of antique influence.

Authentic organic impact

The frame shop at Art Dallas is known for its selection of moldings, creative use of materials, and professional results. Art Dallas makes an effort to preserve the traditional, handcrafted custom works.

From leather to custom wood, Art Dallas creates custom work from many different substrates.  

The large, wooden works of art mark the space with a warm, inviting aesthetic, while big, bold wood works will never go out of style. Trending this year are beautiful wooden finishes that can be accomplished several ways. While one of our in-house selection of frames is a beautiful solution, a hand-painted finish still achieves a high-end style and lends it to a lighter budget.

Use texture to make neutrals pop

Aside from creating contrast with color, texture is a subtle way to bring new drama into a space.  

One thing you will never catch a stylish space without is beautiful artwork. It's a necessary investment you can not skimp on. Whether it is a classic original Monett or a graphic design custom-created for your space. It's not about the piece but the commitment to the art.

Find your One-of-a-Kind

If you don't remember anything else, the artwork matters the most. While large originals can be a budget buster, if you are smart about styling your space, an original from an up-and-coming artist will appreciate in value and add some major lux to your space. 

Allowing your artwork to take up space is the perfect way to give it a feeling of grandeur; talk about dramatic!

The introduction of art is a chance to infuse color and personality into a neutral palette. Think large-scale photography, paintings, or even mixed media. When it comes to statement pieces, go big or go home.

Custom Art Install

This project was beautiful from conception. Art Dallas partnered with HUE Design to create this glowing art installation in a hospitality space. 

We started by hand-finishing the wooden panels to match the interior of the space. The deep colors and dramatic lighting have a classic, luxurious feel. 

Individually spaced using a CAD drawing, each of the 740 individual hand polished rods were placed to create that beautiful glow in this space. Walking down this hallway is like walking into a modern art exhibit.

Custom Graffiti

file-20.jpeg

Art Dallas commissioned this graffiti wall, created by a Dallas artist well known for his graffiti work locally.  The letters were routed out of wood to stand out from the rest of the booth.  'Custom,' 'design', and 'create,' are all things Art Dallas does in-house.

 Our mission is to encourage and promote creative artistic expression both locally and throughout the world. We utilize the finest materials and designs to manufacture custom artwork and accessories in collaboration with the finest contemporary artists.

The artist commissioned for the graffiti portion of this work is a local Dallas artist you need to watch. Krik Garnett spent a week creating this work with the direction of the Art Dallas art consultants and design team. As a young progressive artist of modern hieroglyphics, fine art, and design, Kirk “NOIR” Garnett has opened up his mind of color to the world around him. While being influenced by many of the greats, Kirk has chosen to push the ideology of peace, unity, love, and having fun through his expression and teachings.

Pinks in Decor

It's official: pink is losing its gendered connotations; it evokes so many feelings that everyone can relate to, from joy to lust, making for the perfect mood-enhancing paint color. Pink has shape-shifted into a stronger, more complex version of itself. We are seeing designers developing more spaces with sophistication, power, and subtlety utilizing shades and tones of pink more than ever before. 

Interestingly, pink is the only primary color with its own moniker (it is technically pale red) but the psychological effects are much different to its passionate foundation shade. In a study carried out in the late 60's, it was noted that color affects muscle tone, and that staring at the particular shade, Baker-Miller pink, after exercise, lowered the heart rate, pulse and respiration more significantly than other colors. The color is both soothing and aesthetically pleasing, making it a great choice for the living room or bedroom.

minimalist pastilles

2018 is ready to give way to a new minimalist palette. Soft, washed pastels like mint greens and sandy pinks will totally reimagine design spaces this year. 

In art, pastels are a specific type of medium. They are colors with low saturation but not necessarily the light, delicate colors we think of as pastel colors. While many pastels are light, they do not have to be. Any color that has a lower saturation and a high value is considered a pastel. Subdued colors fall into the pastel category as well. 

Soft, washed neutrals, greens and sanctuary pinks work together to create harmony.

 

 

Pink as a power color

When we said millennial pink has, "been taking over décor," We didn't know it would take such a powerful stance in the design space. Diverting from loud bubblegum pink, millennial pink is meant to make a statement. 

To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. Rich, saturated colors such as grey or chocolate brown tend to make a room feel small and cozy and bring the walls inward. In addition to color, consider the framing finish. Glossy surfaces reflect light, and this helps to expand the space.

 

 

Sophisticated blush

Abstracts on canvas are a gorgeous large-scale way to warm up your space. The pink tones in these 75 by 50 originals on canvas draw the eye and warm the space. A blend of pastel and neutral hues is a charming touch to your already fabulous space.

Large Scale Art Prints

Art Dallas has worked with Acrylics for the better part of 3 decades! Acrylics in an Art Dallas framer's hand can be used in several beautiful ways. As a framing option, acrylic makes a major statement while staying classic. Printing on acrylic creates a new way to view a fine art print; the colors come out incredibly vibrant and it makes for a truly unique piece. Displaying your precious items is a solution to shadowboxes, where you may miss all sides of your treasures.

Print on vinyl

Another key feature of the booth this year was the giant mural on the outside of the booth! We loved the bright colors of this beautiful work.  The work was scaled to roughly 5 feet by 10 feet. These works were created by a local Dallas artist and then printed on a large scale in the Art Dallas print shop! 

Vinyl murals provide a lasting and timeless look in addition to, or in-lieu-of, traditional media. Art Dallas vinyl murals are fully customize-able, allowing for the client’s imagination to be fully developed into a lasting impression.

Art Dallas Latest Art Install

Art Dallas was recently asked to hang these gorgeous metal cut letters in the Dallas Uptown area! The letters were hung on an Astroturf wall to create the perfect juxtaposition between nature and metal. Sculptural works of art in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors enlivens and activates a neutral space. Mixing metals with earth tones not only provides a nice, light quality, but also brings the "je ne sais quoi." This space opened the room while giving structure in the form of an art installation.

This style is the design addict’s must-have; understated for a room yet hyper-chic! We love that this space made this the statement piece; there's life to the design. One of the most fun remodels for 2018 is a refocusing on art pieces toward rich metallic tones: deep coppers, bronze, gold, and of course a crisp silver.

3 Perfect Color Combinations We Want To See More

Black and white, purple and gold, gray and... just about everything; in the world of color palettes, there exists many safe, go-to combinations. Of course, those colors are all incredibly lovely and timeless, but what about giving something just a little different a try? For those moments when you're ready for a bit of a shade shift, consider one of these three powerful color pairings that we love.

SHN169_cn_44x44.jpg
SHN170_cn_44x44.jpg

BLUE AND ORANGE

You may already know that blue and orange are complementary colors, but a slight tweak in the shades (a little brighter, a little deeper) always creates a buzz for that interior space. 

Blues remind us of the sky and the sea, making them calm, tranquil and serene. deep blues also give a room a feeling of regal style. Mid-tones are ideal for creating a soothing environment because they invoke feelings of tranquility; these hues tend to be dramatic and energizing. 

Orange is an important color for many cultures; it symbolizes action, confidence, and courage. Expect to see a resurgence in a multicultural orange representing courage and bravery. This work's twist on a classic orange tone is a beautiful bright addition to the cool blue tones it possesses. 

RSFA123_cn_mx_48x48.jpg

Blue And Olive

These two hues might reside on the same side of the color wheel, but when paired together, they bring something entirely different to the table. The light-hearted baby blue color plays nicely with the deeply sophisticated olive green, revealing spaces that are fresh-feeling and lively.

Green and blue tones naturally recall health and wellbeing, and is a natural stress reliever. These colors resonate with nature, making it both calming and invigorating. Cool colors work well in most rooms within the home, and is a great statement color for the bedroom. Introduce green into the home with the use of plants and lush greenery which will further add to the innate serenity of the hue.

SHN192_cn_mx_55x55_60x60Bleed.jpg
SHN191_cn_mx_55x55_60x60Bleed.jpg

Grouped Neutrals

Our last color combo is a quiet focal point. With multiple muted shades in one space, you might think a struggle for center stage would ensue, but on the contrary, these hues attract equal attention when paired together. 

Neutrals such as beige, tan, or natural tones create a clean, airy backdrop for any design or color scheme. Green is often associated with cleanliness, innocence, and goodness. Because they are neutral, these colors can be calming and they make a room feel larger and airier. Bringing green and neutrals into a space does not always have to be nature's natural elements. Green and blue tones in artwork bring that lush feeling into a space.
