Art Prints on Mirror Add a Unique Look to any Home - Gallery Direct Review & #Pinterest #Giveaway!



I have discovered, while working with Gallery Direct, that the perfect piece of art can add a touch of class and sophistication to any room.  Not everyone can afford real paintings so beautiful art prints are the next best thing.  I wouldn't shop anywhere else for my prints than Gallery Direct!  With so many stunning prints to choose from and numerous, wonderful framing options, Gallery Direct has something for everyone!

Who is Gallery Direct?
According to their website, "Ten years ago, Gallery Direct started as a fine art publisher, which is the crucial liaison between artist and audience, responsible for finding the talent, capturing the work, recreating and releasing the work as a limited edition.  We quickly noticed our artwork being sold, by third parties, for six to nine times what it should.  This did not sit well with our founders, two guys with a vision: Fine Art for Everyone!  So we began to frame our images, taking our collection and message directly to you, hence the name Gallery Direct.  The art world hasn't been the same since we came onto the scene."
"Move forward to 2010, still a privately held company, gallerydirect.com is the largest limited edition fine art publisher, printmaker and artisan framer in the world.  This means we do it all: we find the artists and the artwork; we market and recreate the art ourselves.  There is no middleman between the artwork and your walls."


My Review
As all of my loyal, long-time readers know I am a Gallery Direct Ambassador so I have the opportunity to review a gorgeous piece of art just about every month.  This month's selection is a gorgeous Van Gogh on their beautiful mirror frame.  We chose "Starry Night" which is one of their bestsellers.  They describe it on their site as "Van Gogh's magnum opus from 1889 dazzles with it's 'swirling clouds in violet haze' as the song writer Don McLean wrote in his haunting song, 'Vincent'.  Painted from memory, the nocturnal scene depicts a view from the window of Van Gogh's room in a French asylum.  Despite it's poignant origins, The Starry Night captures an otherworldly beauty that still spellbinds audiences today."
We chose the 3 1/2" Natural Very Dark Brown with Pewter Lip for our mirrored frame which ended up to be the perfect frame for this print.  The dark brown in the frame really brings the rich brown colors out of the print which makes it even more stunning.  
If you've entered any of my previous Gallery Direct giveaways you'll notice we chose a different framing option this time, we usually go with acrylic.  But we thought that this print in particular would look best on the mirrored frame and boy were we right!  As always, I am very satisfied with our new print from Gallery Direct and very excited to pick out our next print!
I highly recommend Gallery Direct to anyone looking to add a touch of class or beauty to their home.
