Choosing Art can be an Art in it's self!

I am sure you have all heard the Cliche, Art is a Personal choice, Right?
Hmmm... That leads me to believe that maybe home design is too, since I believe design to be an art.
But wait, don't most clients hire a designer so they can help them Choose???
Choose what? Colors? Furniture layouts? Rugs? Accessories?ART???
I encourage investing in art that you LOVE, whether purchased at the latest local auction or brought in by your designer.

I appreciate Fine Art and enjoy assisting clients make a choice on what to purchase
and where it should hang in their spaces.
I am not biased ,by any means, on style type, but I do Push ORIGINAL Art.
And if you know me...I Am NOT pushy. Well at least not as a Designer! :)
Below are some of the Local (Arkansas) Original pieces that I am inspired by today.
Most or similar pieces can be purchased at the link below each pic.
I love this Abstract on canvas by Nicole Sample. It would look great in a frame or hanging as is.

Who doesn't need a Cute Rooster hanging in their Kitchen?
Though, I'm not sure if artist, Matt Coburn, would like me to call it Cute! :)

Sometimes choosing the Art is only half the battle.
Finding it a Home- inside of your home- can be quite a challenge too.
Especially if your house is on the market.
Since Art is Personal, it can be a little distracting to future Buyers.

A few steps to take when Styling to Sell with Art
(and everyday too)
Be thoughtful of Scale~ Don't display the incorrect size for the space.
Don't over crowd a room with too much art.
This is VERY Distracting and makes rooms feel much smaller than they really are.
Try to choose one focal point in each space, then coordinate with smaller or less dominating pieces.
If you need to store your fine Art, It's best to keep it in a temperature controlled storage area.
Never keep it in a damp basement or hot attic.
I would love to help, if you need other tips on where to purchase or how to hang art!
Keep it Real (original)!
