There is a confession I have to make to you, my friends. I have a really hard time to pick art for my walls. I find it a lot more easier to suggest art pieces and photography to my clients, to curate inspiring boards for the blog even to pick some pieces that would look swell in my apartment but that's about all. I never take that leap of actually buying an art piece. And, that makes my walls empty and my eyes sad. You know, it is so hard when you are continuously surrounded by pretty things to commit yourself into one or two that will stay with you for a long time and keep you company on your lonely days from the walls of your abode. That said, take with me a small trip to the emotions of beautifully curated art on home walls.
I feel a tad jealous of the amazing results a single statement piece or a collection of perfectly matching ones can do. Plain decoration, simple furnishings and neutral shades can get a whole new life when a painting is involved.
And then, it's not all about famous artists and unaffordable price tags. Collections of favorite things, magazine cutouts, young independent artists and vintage finds can create a totally fabulous result.
