Welcome. My name is Linda, I am a Decorative Artist and Florist, working from home. I am married and have a ten year old daughter.Interior decoration and design has been a passion of mine since I was little, I particularly love French and Scandinavian Country style. I love to cook,garden (in fair weather), bake and sew.I hope that this blog will appeal to like-minded souls. My aim is to add more beauty,hopefully with humility and joy.Thankyou for taking the time to read this.
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.
