Meet Reagan Geschardt

In my mind, when I spot an artist's work and can immediately envision where I'd hang it in a room, it's the sign of a good artist.  This is exactly the revelation I had when I discovered Reagan Geschardt.  Reagan's style features that of an abstract expressionist who incorporates the tranquil settings in her environment into her work.  Until recently, Reagan was an artist in the Naples, Florida area where her work was showcased in many prominent homes in that area.  Now living just outside of NYC with her two girls and husband (also an artist*), she looks to landscapes and serene settings for her inspiration. 

You know Vivid Hue Home loves color and there's no question that Reagan Geschardt is filled with fun, brilliant use of patterns and colors. 

I decided to have some fun and partner her art in rooms that I feel really showcase her versatile style.  The cool thing is that Reagan's style blends with a vast array of interiors.  Everything from Lilly Pulitzer to Serena Lily to Kelly Wearstler to Lonny... Reagan Geschardt's got versatility to go just about anywhere you need a dash of fun! 

Lilly Pulitzer Showroom with Reagan Geschardt's "Spring has Arrived"
I love the subtle shades of lavender, mauves and split pea green in "Spring Has Arrived."  Shown here in a Lilly Pulitzer room, it adds a kick to the preppy decor.  I envision Palm Beach, Florida in the sixties type of vibe and yet, this could also go perfectly in a bathroom or kid's room. 
Lonny Mag, 2012 Interior with Reagan Geschardt's "Out East Somewhere"
I love that Reagan's work can take on a Hollywood Regency feel in a different room setting.  Loving the use of magenta, gold and teals in "Out East Somewhere"

Adore Mag with Reagan Geschardt's "Summer Day"

I adore  Reagan's "Summer Day" in this Adore magazine interior setting.  The art adds a touch of fun into the elegantly modern room. 

Serena and Lily Ronan Room with Reagan Geschardt's Ship Wreck

Reagan's Ship Wreck brings a vibrant, child-like feel to the Serena and Lily Ronan room.  Perfect environment to display such energetic colors!

Kelly Wearstler's Foyer with Reagan Geschardt's "Untitled"
And, this pairing seems like a no brainer.  Kelly Wearstler, known for her 80's chic style is practically a design-twin for Reagan Geschardt. 

Reagan is available for commissioned murals and you can contact her here.  Below are a few of her murals that are featured in designer Susan Haynes' own home.  Brilliant colors.

{*Psst, remember how I mentioned that her husband is also an artist?  Well apparently the talent runs in the family.  See below for some of Danny Geschardt's work.}



Thanks for the introduction! I am loving her work.
