Fall In Love With Art Decor

Home décor accents make for good taste, and a space that visitors will always remember. Right before, or very soon after moving we make the decision of what is desired for our new home, storefront, gallery, or office to look like. Choosing themes such as Moroccan, vintage, decade, and color blocking variations to create an environment for your everyday-mood. The fun thing about décor, and space is that over time it just comes together – if you didn’t have a theme in mind at first. There will be a lamp that looks just like the one that you have at home, and you’ll buy it to now have matching nightstand twins. Or, there will be another bookshelf that you need in order to get those books out of the box in the closet, and it may look totally different than the bookshelf that you already have back at the office… But, you know that they will look perfect together.

“Interior design is making the best possible use of the available space.”

Architectural interior layout, also more familiarly known as interior design, can be done with a professional, personal shopper, or alone. “Interior design is making the best possible use of the available space.” Today it is very easy to get ideas online from apps such as Instagram, and Pintrest, or by visiting your local bookstore and purchasing a book dedicated to home décor. A great way to keep your space artsy is to collect a piece of work from a local gallery first, and then buy furnishings based around it. Creating a space that will have the perfect color combination looking both amazing, and unique.

Choosing themes such as Moroccan, vintage, decade, and color blocking variations to create an environment for your everyday-mood.

Artistic home décor is a unique modern approach to creating an artful space. Now, for this style, white seems to cover the walls so that it is just the items in the room speak. Independent stores will have the best designs to select from often because the pieces carried will be one of a kind, limited editions, and made by independent artists. Smaller stores are able to provide more of an engaging experience, making it to where you can get into detailed conversations about the artist who made your piece, and interior decorating suggestions.

Custom décor is a great conversation starter when placed in good view. Purchasing custom pieces are held on to for years like family heirlooms because of the appreciation many collectors have. A great way to create a look of uniqueness is to make your own personal décor. DIY projects are simple and fun to make, helping to elevate the design look of a room. Search the hashtag #diy to see what all can be discovered.

Spring Cleaning: Design & Space

teatree

By Kadesh Carter

A Fresh New Start.

Its’s the middle of April, the perfect time to review your office, studio, or home space and make your design layout ready for the next season. Spring cleaning for some is preparing for a fresh new start, usually the week before, or on the first day of spring. Sometimes not all of us are able to remember, or have the time to stop, and clean right when spring starts. Since its now getting closer to the middle of spring, it may be easier to slowly review your space and see what can be cleaned, removed, added to, or replaced.

As things get shifted around, it opens our eyes to imagine new ways to decorate.

Sometimes we get comfortable with the layout of our work/home space, and we don’t explore the possibilities of moving a desk to a corner with more light, helping to create a better work environment. As things get shifted around, it opens our eyes to imagine new ways to decorate. The design layout of where you spend time should be well curated, with a visual goal to make yourself, guests, and clients feel as though they are in a personal gallery, museum, or boutique. Whats your personal style and how does the art, furniture, fixtures, and sculptures display your unique personality?

Interior Style In The Bay Area

We all have that one home, especially living here in the Bay Area, that we have visited, where we walked in and it looked perfectly put together, and was a great artistic reflection of the occupant. Office spaces with the same statuses, where one walks into the perfect color blocking designs of black and white, with various spread apart pieces being Pantone colors; Diva Pink, XG Green C, and Yellow U. Appearing to have the same look and feel as a boutique in London, New York, Los Angeles, or Santa Row. Able to fuction for lovers of technology, and modern art.

Industrial Architecture + Design

Our current favorite look is industrial (chic) rustic designs, it works for homes, studios, and offices where less means more. It’s a unique way to combine the first original furniture designs with modern contemporary art. Recently while in Jack London Square, it was a reminder of why the industrial architecture in that area has been a favorite for many over the years. The interior spaces that Oasis Art Design has worked with in this area have been condos, and work spaces where it was seen that industrial design styles would be the perfect fit. Rusted metals, woods, and environment materials together creates a one of a kind innovative look and feel.

Have you thought about how you would like your space to work for you this coming summer? Start now with cleaning, adding a fresh new coat of paint, adjusting artificial lighting, moving art to different area’s. Don’t feel that this all has to be done in a day. Move at your own pace, so that when the middle of spring is actually here, you will already be set for summer.

10 Spring Cleaning Design Tips:
1. Take down art to dust, and dust surrounding areas
2. If you don’t love it, upgrade it
3. Think of a color scheme or theme
4. Work on one room at a time
5. Repaint, or replace furniture
6. Clean windows
7. Paint walls a fresh new coat or color
8. Move sculptures to a new area
9. Make future purchases based on the future desired design layout
10. Think design + comfort + function

Good luck!

Walking On Air And Creating Without Boundaries

walkingOnAir

 By Kadesh Carter

Art Belongs To The Artist And Is Meant To Be Shared With The World… To Be Expressed Without Any Second Thoughts.

I was told to do something daring by two people this week. Therefore, I decided to walk on air. One person, whom I have known for ten years, and the other who I haven’t known a year, but his understanding of me feels like a lifetime. When it comes to the creative process, the impossible has to be the least important thought. No time for thinking about what could possibly hold you back from being your most creative self. When we take a selfie, or if you have ever taken one, that person is you. You have created the pose, posture, and facial emotion to express to the world, “Here I am.” Rather that image is signifying boldness, strength, or self love – it’s you. Creating without boundaries has been a great challenge that I have recognized that I can win. It is the total need to overcome any self proclaimed fears. Art belongs to the artist and is meant to be shared with the world. It is to be expressed without any second thoughts.

Owning and valuing the imagined creative thought is one small step for the artist, and an exponential leap for mankind. When looking at a wall, and considering if there will be a permanent installation, or a removable one, that thought must be acted upon. Immediately. Sanding, or painting must begin. Business growth as both an artist, and creative director was birthed from proceeding with the process. Now, everything takes steps to complete, but if something isn’t started, how will it ever be finished? Think of it this way; what if you could have yellow, and purple bedroom colors painted? You can. Your local home improvement store, paint shop, or interior decorator are great resources to make your living room, kitchen or bedroom color scheme dreams come true.

Completing The  Action Because You Believe In The Outcome

Within all of us there is something that we do best. What we are good at tends to reflect on our job, or in personal hobbies. I am good at looking at a spaces and visualizing what will bring it alive. This grew from thought of, “Hmmm, I wonder what a large black painting would look like on that wall.” To, the action of creating the art work and installing it in a space curated by Oasis Art Design. See the difference? One is talking about my actions to myself, and the other is going about completing my actions because I believed in the outcome.

Take Control Of Contrasting Conflictions

Taking a leap of faith, in curiosity, is using what you know and demonstrating that visually which builds confidence. It changes how you maneuver in your life course. “You do or you don’t. You will or you won’t.” A saying that can be applied to the art world and feed the souls of the many paintbrush holders out there staring at a blank canvas. Are you one? You don’t have to be. Go ahead, walk a little faster, skip, jump and take control of the contrasting conflictions that are keeping the colors from flowing freely.

Ok, so I didn’t actually walk on air but it has been a personal and business choice to explore the depths of creative directing to its fullest. And in doing so it has been recognized in my work that I have chosen to be my best self artistically. Despite any social, economic, or regional reasons that have declared art as not being an importance. Art and design is what puts rooms on a blueprint, tile patterns on walls, gallery appearances together, and makes the feng shui in your home the sweetest place you’d like to be.

Red Rouge: Epoxy Flooring

redfloor

By Kadesh Carter

Protect your residential, or commercial garage floor from a boring cement look.

Coating a cement floor is a tough job, but a great upgrade for any location looking for an all around finished touch. A colored, shiny, epoxy floor coat is premier floor varnishing. The durability of a floor is the first thing homeowners, and contractors think of when deciding to cover a floor with linoleum, wood, tile, or paint. How long will this job last? Oasis Art Design loves loyal customers, and satisfaction is a goal that we must meet with each job so that you’ll return. Protect your residential, or commercial garage floor from a boring cement look. Both in style, and in professionalism, the material properties that make epoxy floor coating will have you wishing that you remodeled even sooner.

For a large 1300 square foot job we inspected, and then prepared the floor thoroughly before giving the space a look of royalty in red. The customer specifically selected this color due to cultural beliefs of red meaning happiness, and good luck. What a great combination, one would think. Whatever your favorite color is, or the design theme desired, it is achievable. Make it personal when it comes to having your remodel completed. Your vision is our vision.

 By Kadesh Carter

The First Impression Is Always The Best Impression.

Have you ever noticed a logo and immediately remembered the company or brand? When this occurs it feels as though the image was speaking to you visually. Top Fortune 500 companies, and starting entrepreneurs both alike know that people need to recognize a company from anyplace in the world. When hosting events, sponsoring, creating storefront signage, and most importantly marketing, a superbly designed logo is necessary.

What is the value of having a logo? In business marketing a logo is your graphic mascot, and representation. Children as toddlers remember logos and associate them with their favorite toy brands, as adults when shopping for everyday items we tend to know the items we are looking for by how they look.

Purpose
Advertising in business communications has a certain etiquette. With this being so companies that are inclined to follow certain rules of branding are more successful. Attracting your market is and always will be step number 1. How does a company attract the right people? With a logo that sells.

Brand Identity
Diversity in a world streaming with countless companies is what makes you stand out. Your companies physique and personality speaks volumes when searched for and found. Logos build a relationship identifying who you are to your target market.

Equity
After fulfilling the dream of starting a new company, goals are set to let the world know that you particular company exist. With a logo that points clients in the right direction your business-customer relationship has started. A company that looks good builds trust, when trust is formed purchases are made.

Here at Oasis Art Design we know that the art of design is what fuels any market. Our logo package includes:

  • Professional JPEG Images
  • Two Options
  • One Revision
