It all started when I found this fabulously fun piece of art that will be part of the Prints and Multiples Auction at Christies at the end of the month. It is a 46 x 30 (unframed) lithograph entitled Jules, by Robert Longo. I showed it to a client and she fell in love with it. It is SOoooo “her”. She likes it so much that she is thinking it could be the piece that sets off a redo of her study- she is ready for a change, ready to step it up a bit in boldness, color, energy level. So here is what I came up with Continue reading
Working on a project with a master bedroom that promises to be heavenly and peaceful. It will be a symphony of blues, whites, textures and patterns. Here is a sneak peek of color and pattern:

High gloss is the most reflective and “blingy” paint finish there is. Because it is the most durable and cleanable, it is a great choice for molding and trim. It is also mildew resistant, making it a good finish for kitchens and bathrooms. I am a big fan of using high gloss in dining rooms because the high sheen creates an elegant sense of depth and drama, reflecting light all around the room.

Here is the artist in front of some of the must-have works from his latest series:
“I love photography intimate details of nature that show the intricate colors, texture and shapes in the natural world that is so often unnoticed in our daily lives” -Joe Horner
These images are available as 8″x10″ photographic prints with a wrapped edge on a wooden block. They are ready to hang and include a wood wall cleat hanger.
The wrapped edge on these images is very clean and sharp. The colors are so incredibly vibrant that I had to share details of some of my favorite Joe Horner flower photos:
Prints are metallic photographic prints protected with a laminate.
These prints provide for vibrant saturated colors, and the beautiful clean edge finishing makes for a stunning presentation.
I would recommend buying more than one so you can create a grouping for maximum visual effect, blending color and texture into an impressive pop of color for home or office. What a wonderful way to always have fresh flowers in your room!

Then send me photos of these works on your walls after you get them!
Never underestimate the power of pink. Whether its use is subtle or bold, it has the power to transform fashion and decor.
