When we're in obsessive decorating mode, there's no telling how many hours we spend browsing the web for neutral jute area rugs that are hand-finished and repel red-wine stains. (A girl can dream, right?)
??And now with Cureeo--a Chicago-based company that sells work by artists from around the country--we're applying our stellar online shopping skills to choosing what goes on our walls.??
Curated by local art insiders and gallery owners, Cureeo aims to take the mystery out of art collecting with its clean, user-friendly website that lets you filter works by price, size and color palette.
??In each of the site's four price ranges, we found pieces we'd love to have in our own feminine, stylish and streamlined abode.
Under $250 Shannon C. Rankin's small but gorgeous abstract prints have a soothing, ethereal quality perfect for a bedroom. ??
$250 to $500 Chicago artist Connie Wolfe's blurred, black-and-white drawings play with shadows and light and appeal to our moody side.
$500 to $1,000 The floral motifs in Yoonmi Nam's sumi ink drawings are both intricate and delicate. The neutral colors won't overpower our already bold living room.
??Over $1,000 His spare, architectural aesthetic and cool, dreamy colors make us covet Jacque Liu's plexiglass pieces.
