One task which I am truly hopeless at is hanging artwork. I’m too embarrassed to say how many paintings and picture frames I have leaning up against the wall waiting to be hung ……. (I can see 4 from where I’m sitting). Sadly, it’s highly unlikely I’ll ever have the patience and precision to hang 16 album covers in perfectly neat rows of 4, ever. 
That is just one of the many reasons I love the way one large piece of artwork can dress up a room.
 One statement piece can bring a big hit of color and create a focal point in a room, for those of us who aren’t lucky enough to have the ultimate focal point – a fireplace. This photo below reminds me of the Bondi Icebergs here in Sydney, so I’m thinking of taking my own photo of the Icebergs and creating a similar look in my home. Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own work hung on the wall? Far more personal and major bragging points. Now, just have to master the simple art of photography…

    when we just moved into our house, we had a lot of big blank walls to decorate. we didn't have the money to buy (expensive) art, so i enlarged some family photo's: 5 for $300. they are black and white (and so are our walls), i love to watching them, but a wall cannot be blank. so definitely into the statement pieces

    I got my boyfriend one of those vinyl holders for Christmas! He has a radiohead album in it. It looks great, but not as cool as that picture!

    I actually like the look of artwork propped against a wall.
