Consider these two scenarios: 1 – You’ve been lucky enough to sell your old house and move into your new dream home. 2 – You can’t afford, or be bothered with all that in the present climate and have decided to spruce up the old place instead. If you’re in either of these two situations, you’ll very likely be decorating, moving the furniture around, throwing out a few old dust collectors and splashing out on some trendy must have accessories… candles, driftwood and scatter cushions anyone? You might even invest in carpets, curtains and blinds and lighting to complete the makeover. Looks fab! What’s the betting however, after all that time, effort and investment, the old pictures go straight back up on the walls?
Choosing art is no more daunting than choosing paint or furniture. Neither does it have to be expensive or created by a ‘famous’ artist. There is no shortage of less established artists creating unique and individual work which could become sound investments for the future. Of course, you may have no interest in art as investment, but good art can transform the look and feel of a room completely. It is making a statement about your personality and aspirations.
