Choosing Art For Your Home

March 16, 2017
choosing art for your home

When I moved to my new place, I knew one of the first things I wanted to do was hang some great art above my fireplace.

The bare bones are there, but we need happy art, wardrobes, a real dining table and chairs… it’s functional as it is and needs to be prettier. 3 weeks in and the basis of my colour schemes are visible; I’ve decided on the style I want in each room and kind of know how I’m going to get there. The main feature of this house will be…
