Buy what you love...

Love it; buy it.....

In the midst of hanging, subtracting and adding to the current decor of my ranch redo, it occurred to me that you really do covet, hunt and finally own what you are really drawn to and love.
It is then the designers ability to choose, edit and enhance the current inventory of clients and advise them into new and future purchases that will enhance and "mesh" with the current inventory.

Love this vignette of collected artwork. Continuity at it's finest with a color scheme that connects the dots and links the separate pieces into a working gallery. The Charleston Home magazine showcasing designer Muffie Faith. Faith's tips are clear; Buy what you love. A certain painting, etching or sketch draws the viewer in for some unannounced reason, be it color, composition or period. Remember too when hanging your artwork, do not overlook the most simplest places. A great vintage oil can carry a laundry or computer room, and why not? You spend a lot of time doing the mundane, why not jazz it up a bit!

Wise words! I love Muffie's collection & I admire those that can break free of the typical and do what's in their heart. The mundane is for the unimaginative. Happy Sunday Leslie. Glad the ranch redo is coming right along x

It takes bravery & courage to edit one's treasures Leslie. I think the idea of a vintage oil in a laundry is so good it hurts!
