Our Obsession with Art
If you have been to either of the Elsie Green shops, you know about our extravagant collection of vintage oil paintings.  From florals, to landscapes, to portraits and more, we have a soft spot for all beautiful art.  We are suckers for a wall filled with oil paintings, but also believe in the power of one single stand alone piece.  Mixed matched collections, framed or unframed, canvases or boards, the possibilities are endless.

We love to style our art in an unexpected, or what may be deemed abnormal, location.  A few of our favorite spots: the shelf in your kitchen, leaning in an armoire, or hanging in the bathroom.

We, of course, love the traditional practice of hanging vintage oil paintings on the wall.  However, we also love a stacked collection leaning prettily against a wall.  Varying shapes and sizes help in creating a layered look that we swoon over every single time.

There's something about a large collection of oil paintings all with a very specific underlying tone or aesthetic.  Whether it be all neutrals, a grouping of portraits or florals, or all oils on stretched canvas, we can't help but be drawn to an array of one thing.

As always, if you are in need of further inspiration head over to our Pinterest. We have a special board dedicated to our affinity for vintage oil paintings.  Additionally, if you're looking to add to your personal art collection come stop into the shops or take a peek at our assortment available on our site.
