I am happy to be back to my blog (August totally disappearing due to

laptop collapse) with a new HDD up and running!  Here is a great

example for hanging multiple prints/paintings. which is always a

challenge.  This can very inspirational if  you are a collector of special

pieces of framed art, but are in a quandary as to how to display them

tastefully.   Your collection will not look exactly like this, but it will

definitely show your own personality! I, myself, am faced with this

problem, being one of those with an art ‘stash’ which I have recently

perused!

Happy Hanging!

…and maybe these shoes just casually lying around!

I saw this painting (even though small) and I immediately visualized it as a take-off point in a room, whether it be a white room, a neutral toned room…etc.

It would be fun to keep all furniture neutral except for the pillows and accessories, pulling out colors from this fun piece.  The sky is the limit…sheets, place mats,  dishes, flowers…  WOW!

Texture along with color make a room interesting. The weave of a fabric can be art in itself. I have always loved the titles given to certain fabrics and the color names; it lures you into using them in your own apartment…if only a touch of it. Maybe just a pillow or two will satisfy! Perhaps just a little accent color from a favorite painting…

Sigh!

Not only do I love the white drawing-like painting in the room, but I especially like the splash of orange.  It is a ‘feel good’ color.  I relate it to the Sacral Chakra, SVADISTHANA, ones own abode (if you are into that). But if that is not  your thing,  it just adds a great punch to a room.  I use it in my space and it definitely has a pleasant effect.
