One glance at these prints during a visit to The Nest Egg, I knew I liked them...a lot.
After seeking feedback on our dining room in a recent post, which I thank you ever-so-much, I realized perhaps these prints of butterflies might work.
I returned to The Nest Egg, where Elisabeth so kindly climbed a ladder in her lovely heels and grabbed the artwork high up on a wall in their shop and where got to home with 2 new butterfly prints.
Today, they were hung above our buffet. (Heeding your advice, I definitely need more color here...perhaps a flower arrangement? And how about decorative plates on each side of the artwork?)
I also discovered Suzanne Kasler's collection of artwork exclusive to Soicher-Marin. Some of my favorites include:
Seals with Shells (they remind me of Quatrefoil Design's framed intaglios, but with a twist)
Tuilleries A Paris
Ribbon Designs Circa 1850
I may not have discovered Soicher-Marin and their plethora of artwork if it weren't for The Nest Egg, which is available at their fingertips.
Our dining room, well, that space is a work-in-progress. The idea of incorporating red accents as well as darker furniture appeal to me. If I could, I'd replace our dining room table. It's just not high on our priority list right now. You are right though, I should consider staining it a darker color. The tabletop definitely needs refinishing after 20 years of wear-and-tear.
And what I am learning about artwork is how much of a personal reflection it is to one's home.
