Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

My boyfriend Robert is mainly an art historian, but he's also somewhat of an artist. I commissioned him to paint something for my new office that had a mod flair to it. I wanted something inspired by popular shapes and patters of the '60s--specifically sunbursts and diamonds. I've noticed that mod design incorporates a lot of diamond patterns, and his painting turned out to perfectly capture that. I liked it so much that we decided to hang it in our living room, where it fit the theme:

With a relatively cheap canvas and some acrylic paints, we've made the space above our TV more mod than ever! It's the perfect accompaniment to a cocktail and a Mad Men marathon.
