I love artwork with a personal touch and illustrations that depict interiors and snippets of life at home are no exception. You can often tell more about a person by the things they surround themselves with than you can based on just their appearance which make these akin to lovely little portraits of their inhabitants, be they real or imagined.
We are at a point in the Cure where all of the changes are finally starting to add up and I am starting to see things come together, which is a big improvement from where I was just a few days ago... in the depths of, "What did I take on? I want to quit but I can't exactly leave it like this."
Painting is not an option for us (as I suspect is the same for many renters), so I decided to focus on creating a gallery wall that I really love in order to bring some color to the walls. One of my goals with this cure is to lighten and soften things up a bit with our existing decor, so I created a palette and selected my artwork with that in mind.
Art is, and probably will forever be, an integral part of decorating and making a home. What's not vital? Making the same art displaying mistakes that many of us have probably made at least once in our home-decorating histories. These are some of the most common art displaying mistakes that can be avoided.
Luckily there are plenty of outlets for affordable art these days and one of them may be in your own closet. That wrapping paper you drag out 10 minutes before your friend's birthday party—take a second look—perhaps it's beautiful enough to frame.
