Cathy’s Tuesday Tip-Make A Bold Statement With Art

I have a confession to make. When my husband and I purchased our first property together, the very first purchase we made was a piece of artwork. That’s right, we didn’t buy a bed or a sofa or a even a coffee table. We chose to invest in a piece of artwork. While both my husband I love art, we certainly can not afford ultra pricey art by any means. Instead, we have purchased throughout the year art we liked from graduating BFA and MFA students from some of the prominent art schools in our area of New York THIS is a tip that anyone can do!

Three pieces of art in a series, also known as a Triptych (hint– they are identical pieces of art! — TIP — purchase three identical pieces of art and presto!)



I LOVE this piece and get sooo many compliments. The equestrian theme is definitely still on trend! Centerpiece1


When you have a long wall, making a bold statement with artwork is a must!
