One task which I am truly hopeless at is hanging artwork. I’m too embarrassed to say how many paintings and picture frames I have leaning up against the wall waiting to be hung ……. (I can see 4 from where I’m sitting). Sadly, it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever have the patience and precision to hang 16 album covers in perfectly neat rows of 4, ever.
That is just one of the many reasons I love the way one large piece of artwork can dress up a room.
One statement piece can bring a big hit of color and create a focal point in a room, for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have the ultimate focal point – a fireplace. This photo below reminds me of the Bondi Icebergs here in Sydney, so I’m thinking of taking my own photo of the Icebergs and creating a similar look in my home. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own work hung on the wall? Far more personal and major bragging points. Now, just have to master the simple art of photography…
