The Perfect Holiday Host / Hostess Gifts!

What do you get your favorite host or hostess to thank them for giving you an amazing night off with friends this holiday season? Well, we have a few ideas!

JUST OUT this week --- These VINTAGE art prints can be quickly and simply framed with a black - or white - frame, and are the perfect addition to any home. Especially in pairs! Every print is original artwork based on Alison Kent's own vintage and antique collections. Vignettes literally from her home to yours - or, your hosts!

ALREADY a popular item that's just been re-stocked, our "the art of WINE" and the "the art of FOOD" Aprons with black ribbon tie have been a huge hit as Host/Hostess gifts this fall. Every time it's received, it tends to be immediately - and excitedly! - worn for the rest of the evening. Printed in original watercolor artwork and calligraphy, it's a truly thoughtful treat.

Wishing you - and your party hosts - all the happiest of Holiday seasons!
We'd love to see your party pics. Feel free to tag @ak_alisonkent and #MYakHOME #artfulelements in your Instapics!

akHOME - launch at ids Vancouver!

It's OFFICIAL!! akHOME is doing our premiere "artful elements" launch next week at Vancouver's Interior Design Show (IDS Vancouver)!! We are SO excited to show you all the things we've been working on over the past months.

This season, we love a home that remains light and white and airy for the dark, cold winter months - with accents of moody purples and, of course, black! It's all about bringing artwork off the walls and into every element of your home. We love the reaction when people visit our Studio and are suddenly surrounded by creative, artful, storied objects in every direction. Art, simply, touches the soul and we're happy to share it from our Studio to your HOME.

From painted watercolors translated into fabrics, pillows or wallpapers (YES! Wallpaper!!) to gorgeous calligraphy linework, there is a touch of art in every piece we create.

Not located in Vancouver? Follow along by signing up for VIP events, previews - and sales!

Stay Tuned!
