A little mixing does a lot of good!

I love it when art makes a room. That bold green painting against that pink stripe chaise nearly took my breath away. I love the first image too. Mix away!

This is my kind of decorating. I've never had the money to do one of those great rooms I love that you show. I think one of the challenges of decorating is working with what you've got and can't get rid of. Overcoming it. I live in a Dutch house and my husband has many old fashioned ideas.

Oh Viera,
I also love mixing a classic style as a base with contemporary art!
Our friend Brooke of Velvet and Linen did a nice job hanging Steve's paintings on that wall! Isn't it?

Love the offbeat art in these rooms! I am crazy about art, I think a few pieces that are really unique and well-placed just make a room! Your blog is stunning, fabulous posts and I will be following! Cheers!

Wow - I am such a fan of modern art with more traditional decor (rather than, I'm afraid, the reverse). These are marvelous examples. So fresh.

You certainly highlighted the amazing art in itself, which is placement, when it works - it really works! of course all the images are wonderful, how could you pick a favourite!!
