Have you ever gone to a friend or family member’s home and seen the same image on their walls that you saw at your local decor store, and about 10,000 other places? Maybe it’s the hipster in me, but it drive me a little mad. I love being unique and encouraging others to be their fabulous selves as well. The great news is that having walls decked out with original art is not only for the bourgeois, celebrity, or designer elite- you too can have a gorgeous interior.
Check out why decorating with original art is the business...
1. Create a unique space that has character. Original art offers your interior space an opportunity to stand apart. Sure you can decorate with reproduced-machine made works, but where’s the creativity in that? (Image of one of the art pieces from the gallery)
2. Tell a story with your original art - If you happen to meet the artist that created your art, there is always some meaning or purpose behind the work. You will be able to share this with your guests. Some artists are even donating proceeds towards important causes. It is all great for conversation-trust me.

3. Collect something original-yes I said collect. You are a collector of art when you buy original art and limited prints- no matter to cost. They may even become valuable in the future. In the meantime enjoy the beauty of your newly collected art.
4. Make a difference, promote human interaction, and encourage creativity. When you buy art that was created by a person, you are encouraging the seemingly lost art of live human interaction. This is how it works- a human uses their time, energy, and resources to create the art, and you use your time, energy, and resources to purchase the art-it has human written all over it. You are also helping someone live their dream, which is also going to make your space, and our world a more beautiful place to live. I had to get sentimental...what can I say I’m a romantic.
