So in the spirit of Twitter and Instagram we are shortening our blog. Less talk, more action. Because we have been in the home furnishing business for almost 30 years we have a pretty good idea of what works and what doesn't. Let's start with A.
A is for artwork.
Every house needs some. If your budget precludes Picasso don't despair. Art is everywhere, but not always where you think. Large black and white photos, when matted and placed in simple black frames count as artwork and will look fabulous on your walls. Meanwhile take the 8 x 10 glossy the school photographer took that you have been displaying front and center and send it to your mother-in-law. The same goes for your wedding pics--rarely are they a great look for over the mantel. Put some 5x 7's in silver frames and find a shelf.

Remember to keep your frames simple. One of the premier photography galleries in the world uses only white, black, mahogany, silver or chrome frames with white mats.
