Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a
local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.
Sadly, I do not possess a piece of original Art, unless you count prints, but if I did, I would make my painting the focal point of a room, as in the image above. I love the way the soft blues and beige's in the painting are picked up in the woodwork and upholstery.
This particular painting is a little modern for my taste, but I think it is wonderfully complemented by the faded patina of the table and the simple chairs, lavishly upholstered.
My own preference would be for a seascape, or landscape or even a still-life. For the kitchen or bedrooms, something quirky or amusing. I really love vintage signs used in Interiors too, like those below.
Of course there are very clever people who can even make a display out of an empty frame.
Or how about hanging your piece of art around your neck, and when you've finished wearing it, you could place it on the mantle?
All in favour of Art in Interiors, say aye! Wishing you all an art-filled week, with love, Linda x.
