Artwork Can Help Give a Room Some Life

I have been sorely absent from my blog and I apologize.  Life takes over sometimes - and time just slips away. Today I just wanted to give you some ideas on how to give your home more zip and punch when it's on the market. 

A fresh, neutral paint job always helps a room...but after that you need to add some color back into the room to give it a lift.  Adding a colorful throw and pillows or perhaps a colorful rug can add some zing to the room. 

Above, this home in Seaford NY (that you've seen on this blog) has just sold. Without the colorful accents and artwork, this room would have looked very dull. The color gives it a lift - for very little money. 

The powder room above, in a $3.5 million home that sold in 3 weeks, gets a little facelift with a beautiful metallic plaster in a sage green on the walls, an inexpensive gold a beautiful piece of artwork framed in black.  Left plain white, as the builder had it, it looked uninspiring.  Small changes will give you more bang for your buck.

Here are some prints being offered right now (the offer expires in 2 days - so you'll have to act fast) from One King's Lane.  If you don't know about this online site, you should sign up HERE because they offer some great furniture, bedding, candles, mirrors, artwork and other home decor items at discount prices - especially wonderful at this gift-giving time of year.

This framed fish print, for only $79, would look great in a bathroom

Here's another - but slightly more expensive at $159 because of the beautiful frame

For $159, this would look beautiful in a Master Bath or Powder Room
This is a little pricier, at $269, but these antique bird prints would look wonderful
in a den, library or great room

This one I want for myself!  It would look great in a bath or a ladies' dressing room

Not as colorful - but so elegant for $139!  Shells are a great accent for any home.

Another shell print for $139

Add this pair of fish prints in a man's office, den or library - at $139 each.
