I've blogged about that before. Briefly for my new followers, I look up art work that I like, google it, try to find it without the water mark and print it on good quality photo paper and then I find a great matte and frame and presto! I have incredible art work.
I had Rob hang some of my latest purchases and he said "Lisa, we have no walls left for any more art!"
I just nodded and walked away.
Here is one of the ones I printed out and made myself. I love it and have it hung in my foyer.
I can never get the light right with my new camera. (Maybe I should read the book) Anywho, on the two sides of the walls are two new prints I purchased. The one of the right looks like my little Wally.
Here is a larger view of the room. I used Mary Carol Garrity's paint called "TWILIGHT!" (Joni, did you think I would pass on a paint named Twilight?"
Love it. It's so dark and navy and matches my couches exactly.
I love the corner where the round end table is. I have some of my favorite things on the table so I can look at them and enjoy them every day. Mary Carol constantly says in all her books that we should have our favorite things out to see and use and display rather than placed in some hutch or behind a glass case. She's right. Life is so short. I want to enjoy my things. Lay on my couches and use my pretty plates as much as I can.
Today I painted my trim in white. I loved how it came out. Again, the colors didn't come out right. I used the night time switch but I think with the lighting already in the room it appears to have a yellowish hue. Above my molding I have 5 of Nell Hiill's prints (from Mary Carol's store) Believe me, if I could fill every space with a tiny frame I would.
I even put framed art in my bathroom.
The company that I purchased the small framed art has a lovely website and I copied these photos from it to post. I love the placement of the art in the room. Absolutely lovely.
See for yourself.
The photos below are not my house (I wish) They are from the website of Hal Kramer. My friend Susan Taylor told me about it and I aboslutely loved looking through it. I ordered my art work from them. It was very reasonable and lovely and was shipped in 5 days. Hope you enjoy it. Here is the website if your interested: www.halkramer.com
