It probably seems counter-intuitive to be sharing about our latest acquisition when I am often extolling the virtues of decluttering and minimalism. However, I do not subscribe to the bare, sterile aesthetic that is sometimes associated with minimalism.
Carefully curated and intentional purchases form the basis of our home decor and today we were able to collect this newly-framed piece.
We have been looking for an appropriate piece of artwork for the corner of the dining area for some time. As GMan would say, “We will know it when we see it”. Well, we found this right under our noses. It is an enlargement of a photograph I took when we were on holidays in the south-west of Western Australia in 2005. This and a couple of other enlargements were lurking in a bag in the cupboard and I found them when I began sorting out our collection of photos.
The next step was to have it suitably framed. As with any professional framing job, it was a challenge to decide on a frame and surround which would complement the piece. We made our choice and left the work to be completed.
When we collected the finished framed photo I was very happy with the result. It looks perfect in this corner.
And with the blinds drawn.
