I’m a pretty lucky girl. I’ve got a wonderful boyfriend who has a great eye for design, and for flea market finds. Check out this gorgeous oil painting – which he scored for only $15 at the same New Jersey flea market where I found the pretty painting that hangs in my studio/dressing room.
This weekend I finally hung it, transforming the corner of my living room from this blah “before”:
To this much more cohesive “after”:
Doesn’t it look fabulous there? I think it’s a better size for the space, and the neutral wall provides the perfect backdrop.
The vignette on the end table got a little facelift too. I coupled my antique cameras with a simple green plant, growing in a glass vase with water. Now each end table has greenery, as does the console under the window. It adds a little cohesion around the room.
One funny thing – the signature on the painting reads ‘Puccini.’ But I have a feeling the painting was not created by the same man who composed Madame Butterfly and other operas in the late 1800’s!
*Want to see more of the living room? Hop on over here, to part 1 of my “new abode tour.”
