I don’t have too many pictures or art hung up in my house. I feel like it’s going to take me a bit to dive into the art world because the few pieces I have seen are out of my budget right now… Michael Adamson or I just haven’t decided which direction I want to head in. For now I have many pictures up as I do love photography. I have been lucky to travel to a few special places that have given me some great shots to put up.
While looking through House & Home I saw a picture of a gallery in a dining room of 9 frames with the same picture but at different angles, so this gave me an idea of what to hang on one of my walls. I tried taking pictures of silos on my way up to cottages but it just didn’t seem to be what I was looking for. So when I traveled to New York City a few years ago it was my goal to find a picture that I could use. I took a boat tour with NY Waterway and took a picture of a sugar factory that I noticed when we were going along the east side of Manhattan because there was something about the factory that appealed to me.
and had it printed 6 times to make this gallery which is in my dining room! I bought the frames from Blacks . It was really easy and I love looking at this sugar factory which reminds me of my favourite US city!
In my living room I have 3 pictures that I took in Australia. They are developed in Sepia and I used Ribba Frames from Ikea
Another idea I got from House & Home Magazine was to try out painting. I found a picture in the magazine (wish I had saved the picture to show you!), went to Curry’s Art Store to buy a canvas and some paint and just went for it. If you could see the picture I copied, it was surprisingly similar but I guess you can’t go wrong painting this! I know it may not be the painting of my dreams but I enjoy looking at it in our bedroom hall and it adds some colour to our home!
