Adding some colour
The walls in our lounge have been blank since we decorated about 2 years ago. Just plain old white, with a mirror on one wall. Much as I love these smooth,white walls, I have been longing for some sort of artwork up there. I have some nice photos to put up eventually but with regards to artwork, me and L just don't seem to agree on anything. Plus when money is tight, it seems outrageous to spend money on something like a picture.
But eek...we both saw this Whitstable Oyster picture in a shop in town and HAD to have it. We both loved it! It was cheaper than we expected, but way out of our price range! Luckily I sold a quilt to a friend and some bits in Taking the Plunge - so had some money to put towards it. Although the money should probably have gone on something more worthwhile - you know what, we love it so much that is was money well spent as I LOVE looking at it on the wall. It makes me smile. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, don't you! (it's not original by the way, it is painted by a local artist onto wood - copied from an old postcard!)
