I’M MOSTLY A MINIMALIST when it comes to decorating. I wasn’t always that way. At one time I displayed lots of knick knacks in my home. I got caught up in the craft trend for awhile, too. But now I’m back to the basics. Of art.
Through the years I’ve collected an assortment of original and print art at primarily garage sales, thrift stores and a recycled art sale held annually at the local Paradise Center for the Arts. I buy what I like. And, if it turns out to have value, well, then that’s a bonus.
I change my art out seasonally, sometimes more depending on my mood and pieces I want to showcase.
Right now art with hues of orange, of brown, of rust, of muted yellows grace my home.
It’s as if I’ve gathered in the harvest, the landscape, brought the outdoors inside.
Whether honeycomb tissue pumpkins, an owl crafted from wood, a crewel embroidery mountain scene, all are pieces I value. They appeal to me visually but, more importantly, intrinsically.
TELL ME: What type of art do you display in your home and why? Do you change it out?
