Boring Is as Boring Does — Are You Showing Yourself Up?
(Photo’s at the end of blog)
Have you ever walked into someone else’s home only to feel that something is amiss? They have a nice house, perhaps even nice furniture, but something is definitely lacking — you look around you and all you see is dull.
Perhaps this is your house? Put your finger on the problem yet?
It’s the lack of colour, verve, spacial compensation and imagination — you need art and you need it now! Do you know that your décor shouts a loud message about who you are?
Scary for some but true!
You Just Might Need Professional Help!
There is a fine art to balancing correct sizing in an allocated space.
Please don’t fall for the atrocity that has one popping a tiny print on a spacious wall. Or, God forbid, having a print that is sitting skew in a frame, then there’s that old mount-board that has started to develop mold — these are all examples of BIG no-no’s.
Better to go Zen and have nothing on your wall than have sporadic paintings dotting the horizon in a haphazard formation, drowning in a sea of space. If you have a large wall space you need an equally large picture to balance that space out.
Expert Help at No Cost
Yes, I am talking as an artist but I’m also a qualified interior designer and worked for years in the art and framing industry.
You don’t even have to sink your money into expensive original art unless that’s what tickles your fancy.
This is not actually even about impressing neighbours and friends. It’s about your lifestyle and making your house a luxury retreat and not a place of dreaded tedium.
Homes Are Relaxation Zones
It’s a case of beautifying your domicile for a comfortable and invigorating living space. Your opportunity to present your unique sense of taste and style. You too can express yourself through art, it’s not only artists who can achieve this.
Art displayed can give anyone the channel with which to convey what they resonate most with.
If you can’t afford originals right now then go for the alternative — inexpensive prints. This option can be just as good as the real deal these days with high quality canvas and photographic prints.
But enough talk, let me show you — pictures can paint 1 000 word.
This week I’m going to look at a bedroom scene. First you’ll see the bedroom with no art and then 4 variations of art examples and how they enhance the space immediately.

Hi lady! Very nice! I like #1 and #4! #1 because I love the beach, ocean etc. It is very calming to the space. #4 because they are vibrant and fill the space well.
Hey Tammy! Thanks for sharing your favourites 🙂 I suppose nothing ever really beats looking at the ocean. xxx
