Art for arts sake – An essential when Styling a property

Art in all its’ forms can be comforting, stimulating, intriguing, mesmerising, puzzling and take us through many other emotions, but when it comes to ‘styling’ and making a space feel interesting and homely, and above all, cohesive – it is an absolute MUST! Photographs without eye-popping art often appear dull and incomplete, especially if the […]
