Summer has come and gone and temperatures are slipping down to the perfect autumn weather. Fall is a favorite season for so many of us! Who can resist the beautiful colors of changing leaves, the cool evening sunsets, and the excitement of a new season? The best way to capture this time of year is through artwork!
Bringing the outdoors in through artwork is my favorite way to decorate for the season! It lets us enjoy the beautiful landscapes a little longer, not to mention the warming effect of the rustic colors of fall!
AUTUMN IS IN THE AIR
What is it about fall that ignites nostalgia in us all? Jumping into piles of leaves, crisp morning walks, warm cider in your most comfortable chair. There’s so much to love about this season!
Here are a few of my favorites this season. The warm colors of each piece create an inviting atmosphere for every space.
ABSTRACT INSPIRATION FOR INTERIOR DECORATION
If you prefer abstract works, let rustic shades inspire your space! Toned-down colors are a foolproof way to give your space a little seasonal mood while being true to your taste for abstract artwork!
You can’t go wrong with a fall landscape and wood furniture. The natural tones accent the beautiful outdoor scenes. Use a landscape with touches of green accented with leafy florals to show love for both seasons and the beautiful transition from summer to fall!

“Art Design Consultants‘ gorgeous ‘Gallery in the Sky’ space was the ideal location for our black tie wedding reception. It portrayed to our guests our ‘couple personality’ perfectly. With Julie Fleisch‘s assistance at Elegant Fare Inc, Michael and I were able to create our event to be a beautiful blending of modern urbanism with art deco flair along with a splash of exquisite southern cuisine!” – Catherine
ADC GALLERY EVENT FLOOR PLAN
We have an incredible team here at Art Design Consultants and Blink Art Resource!

Some faces you are familiar with, but we want to introduce you to a few key members in our rock star team!
Litsa works closely with her clients during projects, nurturing them through the art selection and custom framing process. She helps clients determine their fine art tastes, offers the gallery space as a unique event venue, and donates her time helping raise money for worthy causes and families in need. She loves connecting artists with a diverse clientele including corporate, healthcare, hospitality and private collectors to create beautiful spaces!
During both large and small projects, Allison works alongside our clients from beginning to end. As Senior Art Consultant, her job entails project timeline projection, helping clients choose the right artwork and custom/contract framing, and seeing each client through to the day of delivery and installation. Allison has been our leading lady for consistently bringing in new projects and new clients for the past nine years. Not only did she recently finish our largest healthcare project in partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and Kolar Design, but is also an artist herself! See the artwork she created below!
As Gallery Director, Elizabeth sees to the effective running of ADC, including the formulation and organization of exhibitions, such as Art Comes Alive, special projects like the annual catalog Blink Art Resource, international art expos like SPECTRUM Miami, and managing artist relations and client projects. She also oversees all marketing efforts including brand management, messaging, and public relations.
Sara works on projects large and small for ADC and Blink Art Resource. With her attention to detail she helps keep each project looking its absolute best and finishing on time! Sara also manages the artwork checked into the gallery and the inventory database and the social media channels for ADC and Blink Art Resource.
Chelsea acts as an artist and client liaison for Blink Art Resource. Now in its third year, Blink proudly promotes over 300 artists to interior designers and art consultants across the nation. From day to day you might find Chelsea working with artists to make sure their needs are being met or strolling through art expos around the country making new friends!
Sandy makes sure that all of our artists look their best by keeping the website up-to-date and laying out the pages of Blink Art Resource. She also helps to keep our social media relevant and does several other graphic design tasks such as creating mock-up final looks for out residential, corporate, and healthcare clients. This process includes digitally placing works of art in client spaces to help them imagine the final look and better understand scale.
Erin’s focus is on building corporate relationships within the Cincinnati region as well as Louisville and Dayton. As an art consultant Erin uses her knowledge of art and design to select the perfect artworks to create the overall mood the client desires to achieve. Is your corporate lobby feeling a little bland?
Matt is an experienced framer and does a fantastic job on installs. With his creative background as an artist he is always suggesting unique ideas for framing to truly make your special piece one of a kind.
Maxwell handles all artwork that comes into the gallery as well as artwork going out. He aids in the installation, packing and shipping of artwork. He also helps with the artwork management and selecting works for the ADC and Blink Art Resource websites.
Corporate executives are always faced with the challenge of increasing employee productivity. Bonuses, constructive feedback, and supportive leadership are some of the common recommendations, but what about the physical workplace? Our environment can either drain or stimulate our energy, and where else can mental energy be quantified but at work?
More and more companies are realizing that investing in art for the office is an investment in the wellbeing of their employees and their business as a whole.
We had a great opportunity to select artwork for PricewaterhouseCoopers‘ newest location in Columbus. PWC is one of the largest professional service firms in the world with over 50,000 partners and staff nationwide. They do a remarkable job reinforcing their brand through the office design and artwork select for their spaces.
Dave Kopecky, the Market Administrative Director emphasizes, “Our corporate brand is very important to us. We want it to reflect our progressive image. The art we selected for our Columbus remodel needed to tie in with our image and overall design, so we used the colors of our logo (orange, yellow, magenta and red) and incorporated them in the art. Wherever we could, we worked with regional talent and also did studio visits. We chose art that was dimensional, energetic and dynamic and it didn’t matter if they were emerging or established artists. We chose art that we loved and felt “fit” with corporate brand. A few artists also did commissions to accommodate our colors and specific locations.”
We placed over 30 artists’ work in the Columbus PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) location! We included everything from 3D-printed sculpture and photography to abstract paintings and metal art for this branch. The pieces reflect the brand and personality of PWC, making it an enjoyable workplace for employees and a classy but fun place for clients!
Color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value. Those are the elements of art. Elements which can likely be found in your company’s logo and design materials as well. Using those elements to select artwork that reflects the company’s brand is a great way to extend the business identity and character beyond letterheads and brochures.
“The art is truly a focal point throughout the office. It brings energy and color to our newly designed and renovated space. After all the artwork was installed, we received so many wonderful comments from our staff and clients. The art made our space go from good to GREAT!” – Dave Kopecky
Seeing something beautiful is an immediate stress-reliever, whether it’s a vibrant abstract painting, a photograph capturing a stunning landscape, or an interesting sculpture. Not only does artwork release stress, it also inspires creative thinking – a priceless commodity in the workplace!
Placing artwork in communal work spaces like boardrooms or frequently traveled hallways puts the artwork in constant view for constant inspiration.
Many businesses are constructed with simple and clean design including the whitest of walls. A little color never hurt anyone, especially in those long hallways or large empty walls!
“As the Market Administrative Director, I wear many hats. Selecting the art would have been a daunting and challenging task, but Litsa and her team at ADC, made it enjoyable and easy. Litsa knew our brand, image and budget. She was able to do all the research on the art ahead of time. She set up artist studio visits and organized the entire process from selection to framing and installation.”
