Grandfather’s clock

Grandfather’s floor clock – an old object in an updated form and a bright yellow color makes a good statement. More of the old in new design to make us remember what once was. With a few paintings as company, it becomes a cozy team.

Just beautiful…

Art can be & mean so much, not just something you can hang on the wall, although I would consider it to be good enough, of course. I just have to like it, or else no matter the cost, it would be something I would give away to someone that appreciates it more than I. But the great thing about art is that it can be adapted to what we want it to be. It’s about each person’s experience. What you read into the artwork, what it means to you or possibly what its worth, in one way or another.

I would not like to dispute all the different opinions since that adds to the excitement around art. For myself, I prefer the simple & predictable variety. I am after all, an ordinary woman 🙂

There’s a great deal of oversized framed photos & posters on various inspirational sites. In the right place it certainly makes a difference. In other it looks too cramped to my liking. But again taste is so different so I’m not having an opinion around that. If you don’t want to go for a big, bigger design, you can create that feeling with several small – that hangs in more rows such as one of the images below.
Some people prefer plain or empty walls while others want to fill them with all kinds of art. Either way, it works just fine with either or. But today, you get to put up with a lot of bigger options. Let’s see what you think!

Old photos or portraits – are they that common in modern homes nowadays? Perhaps more in homes with elderly or possibly if you are very family oriented. I can safely say that the difference is great between Sweden & Australia. Maybe because it’s greater diversity in terms of culture. People who have moved far away from home tends to wanting to look back to remember near & dear ones. It is close at hand to have pictures readily available – it probably feels more at home & reminds about family, friends & relatives.

I like the connection to the family & the different situations in life that we otherwise easily forget or puts away somewhere in the back of the head. It’s exciting also with the character that photos & portraits create in a home. They tell a lot about the home’s residents & makes the space more interesting.
