Last week Two weeks ago I spent most of Monday in Victoria Smith's apartment in San Francisco (you can see the video clip we did for the local television show here). Besides having a stunning apartment with an amazing Pacific Heights view, it was her art collection that stood out for me. Largely consisting of prints, her collection is contemporary, colorful, life affirming and eclectic (and affordable). It also documents her relationships over the years with family and friends in the blogosphere who have shared their art with her... Impressed, I asked her if she would put together a list for me of her favorite sources and allow me to share it with you. She consented, and the list that follows is her own collection of top picks. This is a list to save and explore (and add to! Send me your top picks). Enjoy. (Note: almost all of the frames are Ikea's Ribba frames) "Here are a few of my favorites. Also Jan at Poppytalk does a wonderful job of curating through all the work on etsy and really finds great things: Here's my list with some you saw on my walls.
