It’s time again for my interpretation of this week’s Style Imitating Art (SIA) challenge, this time curated by Erin @ Loop Looks. And Erin is hosting a GIVEAWAY for all SIA participants, and there is still time to participate!
How to participate in SIA and enter the GIVEAWAY:
Everyone who participates in this week’s challenge will get their name entered into a drawing to win either this painting or a notecard made from the image! You just need to email your SIA-inspired photo to Erin at email@example.com by 7PM Central time tomorrow, Tuesday, September 12th. Selfies, flat lays, etc. are all okay — OR if you’re on Instagram, you can post on Instagram and tag Erin (@looplooks) and use the hashtag #SIAChallenge.
Erin personally purchased the painting below and notecard with her own money and will ship it at no extra cost to the winners. Erin will post the SIA round-up and winners on her blog, Loop Looks, next Wednesday, so stay tuned for the round-up, and for the prize winners!
Inspiration to Interpretation:
Erin chose another piece of art, seen in the collage below, which was painted by one of the GrowARTS participants, Kelly Jo. GrowARTS is a program at Garden Center Services, an organization that provides services and job training for adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. The goal of GrowARTS is to have the adults they serve create art that they then sell.
I have a few different turquoise and teal-colored items, and I decided on my turquoise tunic with black, brown, and white embroidered trim. I kept the vibe casual with my black denim shorts and my black-and-gold flip flops.
I went with my black beaded earrings as they reminded me of coffee beans all stacked up. And my second earrings are my turquoise studs.
And of course, I had to enjoy a cup of coffee while taking photos! 😀
As I wanted to take photos while I enjoyed my morning coffee, I decided it would be good timing to take photos in our kitchen and dining rooms, so you could get a glimpse of some additional spaces in our house.
Our house, including the kitchen, had just been renovated when we bought the house, and Sam immediately fell in love with the kitchen, seen above. The cabinets are white with grey countertops (which have embedded metallic bits close-up), with oil-rubbed bronze knobs. Our dining room, seen below, has light grey walls with dark refinished wood floors. We added a dark grey patterned rug and two-tone brown curtains to play off the room’s color scheme. And the picture window in our dining room mirrors the picture window in our living room, as seen in this prior post.
Weather: Hot and smoky because of the forest fires in Washington and Oregon (so we stayed in the house as much as we could)
Where: At home
- Tunic: Dana Buchman for Kohl’s, old
- Denim shorts: Kohl’s, old
- Flip flops: c/o Rhea via giveaway, last year
- Beaded earrings: Handmade by my grandmother, vintage
