Welcome to my blog discussion about decorating with art. I hope you find these tips helpful! Please feel free to join in with questions. So, here is my disclaimer, I’m an Artist and not a writer, so forgive my typos and any grammatical errors. I grew up in Puerto Rico, our verbs are backwards so sometimes my sentences don’t sound correct. So, lets’ give this a try!
I thought I would start with my own experience in decorating a room. We have a family that is shared by a sofa bed for guests, my treadmill (whenever I get to it!) and my computer. My dream is to go to Tuscany and paint my heart out. Since, that will probably be a while, I thought I would bring Tuscany to my home. I painted the walls with warm yellows and then I applied a muted orange with a sponge-roller. This created a warm overall feeling. I then painted scenes from Tuscany on two very inexpensive serving plates with oil paints and placed them above a wall coat rack. The sofa bed has muted reds, greens and gold. The curtains are a moss green with gold threads. The overall feeling is very warm, although it could be very cold here in upstate NY.
