Art scene here is pretty good, probably can't afford any gallery stuff at this point though...I'll look into it anyways.

Yea, this was what I was thinking, maybe pick up some cool lighting/rugs etc. Wonder if there's some way to find a list of the best estate sales coming up in a week, would rather not drive all over portland for crap

Check Craigslist for estate sale ads.

reedo, Gilt and MyHabit usually has some sort of rug sale going on. A lot of stuff that doesn't appeal to me, but there's some OK looking stuff from time to time that doesn't look like it'd break the bank. Agreed with PPPP that it's probably silly to shell out big money on a rug at this point. Sounds like you're still in transient and are just trying to make your current dwelling somewhat aesthetically pleasing.

anyone ever watch Forbrydelsen? It was remade in the US as "The Killing" but the Danish original is (you guessed it) far superior. Just finished watching the first season and would highly recommend it. Also, to make this relevant, it has a character who wears SNS:

This is true, I'm basically looking to buy something that'll work for middlerange, decent looking decoration until I graduate lawl school (so like 4 years it needs to last/look good). No investment pieces now unless I come across a total slam dunk. Looking at prints on art.com and fulcrumgallery.com, any recs for good artists that'd look nice in a minimalist bedroom with mostly black furniture?

A friend told me the original Danish version of The Killing is his favorite show of all time. I watched the first season of the US version though and it was not good. Should check out the original.

Not sure I can make it to Coppens talk because of work stuff, but definitely want to try. We'll see...

that's pretty broad. you want art that's pretty minimal too? like barnett newman? just get what you like. if your whole room looks like it hews to a single theme it will probably look like it came out of a box and isn't really yours. know what I mean? try to avoid cliches too. no rothko, dali, print of guernica or starry night, etc. if you've seen it in someone else's place avoid it.

If you like the West Wing at all, you should be watching Bergen. much better than Forbrydelsen as an example of Danish television.


The New Yorker also did a pretty interesting article on DR (the Danish BBC, essentially) and their recent spate of international successes. Would highly recommend reading it if you've enjoyed any of their programs.

3rd one is probably most versatile/easiest to wear but I like the 4th one most...

Don't buy a fine grade one unless you're careful with hats.

If there are any art colleges in the area it's worth contacting them to see if they have exhibitions sales - you'll be looking through a ton of 'experimental' stuff but you can get some interesting well executed pieces for a very reasonable sum.

Good advice. It's easy to fall prey to this, especially at places such as Ikea where you can theoretically furnish every aspect of your home in one shot. In your case, I would suggest checking such places out for a few things, since you're not at a place in your life where everything you own needs to be top-shelf quality.

Where art is concerned, it sounds simple enough, but just buy what you like. Avoid really famous stuff, as PPPP suggested, but I don't see anything wrong with a print of something a bit more obscure, so long as you like it.

TL;DR, buy what you like and let the Tumblrs of the world inspire your choices, not dictate them.

This, too. A buddy of mine that I worked with early on in college was an artist and he did a lot of these giant abstract paintings on canvas. I didn't know (and still don't know) a lot about art, but I was pretty bummed when I missed out on getting one at no cost when he suddenly left the state and basically gave away most of his things. I did end up with a smaller piece he did, and that's been one of the few things I've hung wherever I've lived since.
