With Fathers Day this week, I took a look at the subject of men and art. As with most things, men respond differently to artwork than women do. They respond to color, shape and subject that resonate for them personally. I find it very interesting to work with women and men both separately and together as a couple. I selected a few re: artworks that speak to the bold color, graphic images and content that tend to be more man-centric. Many of the artworks combine the 6 elements that I have selected.Read More
It’s finally spring, it’s great to see May on the calendar! It feels like so long ago on a dreary wintry day that we planned a spring Mothers Day event at Nest Inspired Home, it’s become a tradition to welcome the warmer months with new artworks. This season we will highlight the works of photographer Allyson Monson and painter Kim Romero. Both artists share a love of texture and color, a culmination of years of experience in various forms of art and design, but their medium and artworks are very different. They are each introducing new works at Nest, here is a highlight and some ideas to bring a spring and summer freshness to any home.Read More
There is something about black and white that is always appealing. Even for those that love color, the right balance of blacks whites and grey always look great and provides a perfect backdrop for a livable space. The combination of opposites can be graphic with high contrast or it can be soft and calming when it includes varying shades of gray. Regardless of the intensity, the lack of color can work in many interiors. Black and white artworks can either compliment a quiet monochromatic space or can provide a subtle contrast to a more colorful room. Here is a selection of RE artworks - and 15 different rooms to inspire using timeless artworks in shades of black, white and gray.Read More
Pink is soft and feminine, but it’s also a strong color that makes a visual statement. There’s a lot of pink in the air now, from fashion, to fabrics to interiors. My previous Valentine’s blogs and picks in artworks have focused on reds, the color usually associated with love and passion. But, pink represents caring, compassion and understanding, as well as love. The sentiment feels right for now. It's a warm, beautiful color - flattering, to skin, to furnishings and interiors. For those who exchange gifts on Valentine’s Day or want to give themselves a mid-winter treat, consider a piece of artwork that will brighten any grey wintry day!Read More
As 2016 winds down, I want to thank the many who have helped to make this past year a busy and productive one for Romanoff Elements. We completed projects that involved numerous people, our clients, partners, artists and the many that support each part of the process. It starts with our clients, our focus is on filling our clients’ spaces with artworks they love, that suit them, their homes and offices. While doing that, we work with many along the way that help to make this happen. Here are just a few of the projects we completed…Read More
It’s been a busy pre-holiday season! We’ve had some great projects working with our clients as they get their homes holiday-ready. Each time I start a new project, I don’t know what artwork will resonate and will be THE artwork that a client will select to complete their space.
Sometimes it’s elusive, hard to pinpoint what type of art someone will have a gut feeling for - but many times the choice relates to the people, places or things in someones life. Artwork is transporting, it can take you somewhere or be about something meaningful. I spend time with my clients to find that “thing” that makes them smile! This monkey often brings smiles!Read More
Time flies! It feels like a few months ago that a girlfriend suggested I stop in to the beautiful new home store that just opened in Rye and meet the owners. I did, and since then, almost 5 years ago, we have worked together. Aly Drew and Bets Miller have been great partners, they have a fabulous store, and a terrific venue to showcase Romanoff Elements artwork to compliment their array of home decor products. I’m happy to be part of their anniversary party to celebrate 5 years but more than that, I want to thank them both for welcoming me and the re:artists into their “nest”. Congrats to Bets, Aly and and their team at Nest Inspired Home!Read More
