Giveaway - Kristin Sjaarda Photo

In this final week of gift guides, I have something beautiful to giveaway courtesy of photographer Kristin Sjaarda. If you aren't a follower of Kristin's instagram feed (@ksjaar) you will be after you see her moody images based loosely on Old Master paintings. 

Kristin is giving away the print below of roses and oranges:

It measures 20" x 30" and is printed on archival hot press, bright paper in a matte finish. The matte finish gives the blacks a lovely rich, velvety feel which lends itself well to the dark tones of the photographs. To enter head to Kristin's instagram feed and follow her, then tag two friends. The contest is open to anyone in North America. The winner will be announced on December 23rd. Here are a few more of her dramatic photos.

If you think you've used up all your luck for 2015 there are two ways you can purchase Kristin's prints. The first is through Kristin directly. She has a few options available on her website in three sizes (Large - 22" x 33", Medium -  16" x 22.5", Small -  8.5" x 11"). Please contact her through her site for more information.

The second way is in person at Home Smith's, a new interior store on Roncesvalles Avenue.

Owner Jennifer Jackson and Creative Director Annie McDonald have layered Home Smith with beautiful things for every price point - from decorative porcelain to lighting, antique Moroccan rugs and custom-furniture. They also carry a selection of Kristin's prints.

So head over to Kritisn's instagram feed and enter to win a print today. It will be the perfect present for yourself or someone else.
