What a Perfect Spot

So often the best location for artwork is overlooked. I found these images to remind us to place art in places where it is not always expected, but is sure to be pleasing to the eye.

Coastal Living

Better Homes and Gardens

Hi there....just popped in from Savvy Southern Style and LOVE your post. I'm especially drawn to the pics from the Coastal magazine. I LOVE pops of colors. Come by and see me at my blog sometime! Happy Spring Ya'll From Houston,TX!

Beautiful pics! I love seeing art in unexpected places. It always makes me think that they must have been put there for the owner's enjoyment vs just displayed. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful photos, filled with inspiration. A couple of the photos have given me an idea for my own home.

Fabulous ideas. I lean pieces of art all over the place...even the floor!

I like the small paintings tucked in among the shelves... with dishes and such. Unexpected but as you say, pleasing to the eye.

Love the pics and how they were displayed in such non-typical areas. I love to do that. Thanx for sharing. Tiff

Thanks for the fabulous inspiration. And wow, that staircase before photo was amazing. What a difference at little paint and some paintings can do!
