Shown above, left to right:
1. A set of nautical flags very simply hung in the living room adds a graphic punch of color to South Aftrican home featured in K & R's Seaside Style.
2. A series of simple greyscale drawings turns into a design statement through the power of repetition in David's Blogger Brownstone. To make a large group of frames like this wallet friendly, these were purchased at IKEA.
3. This 3d wall piece is a simple DIY — decorative branches (from West Elm) were painted and then artfully arranged over the bed in James' Treehouse Bedroom for an unusual yet naturalistic touch.
4. A trip to the art supply store plus a little artistic chutzpah and Arthur got a large painting for the dining room of his loft, featured in this Close Up of Arthur's Long Distance Home . He made the drip style painting himself on a large unframed canvas with a simple color palette.
5. A nice "floating" framing job in Michaels Design District home turns a simple everyday object, in this case, a map, into something special.
