In lieu of writing about a particular artist for this Monday post, I’ve compiled a montage of rooms that use art to make a statement. Large canvases pull an otherwise boring room together and act as amazing focal points. Monochromatic images might add texture, while wild abstracts are perfect for pops of color. The only drawback – price. The larger the image, the more expensive it is generally. That explains why all the artwork in my house is petite. If only I could trade them in for something grand. If you’re crafty, you could splash color on a canvas on your own, or stretch a gorgeous piece of fabric over a frame and staple. Easy.
