Artwork In Excess Of The Sofa

When we moved into this house last November we surely did our share of ripping out and covering up: the kitchen was gutted, bedroom carpets replaced and hardwood flooring installed in the kitchen.

But, there is 1 factor that the previous house proprietor did that I adore: they put in gorgeous decorative molding in the living area. It gives the walls so significantly character and curiosity. After painting above the previous mauve colour with Benjamin Moore’;s coastal fog, it really is greater but nonetheless a operate in progress. Isn’;t that wall just crying out for some art?
I think the ar2rk has to keep inside of the center square molding which is a big space to fill. Here are 3 tips.

2. 1 massive piece of ar2rk like this one particular in Elle Decor:
For this, I would both beg my ar2rk college pals for a painting or copy and paint a single myself.
3. The last notion was one thing I saw in our hotel lobby in Kennebunkport, Maine this summer time.
(Sorry for the poor iphone image.) It really is a triptych…a series of images or painting in 3 separate frames. I consider this would be effortless to develop by using a giant photo print and cutting it up into 3 extended narrow frames.
Choices choices… At least the bookcases in the living area are virtually accomplished so I will be revealing that up coming week!
