Here are a few homes that celebrate art. One on one. Consider bringing in just one piece of original art into your home. Have you ever thought about it? I know I never really did. I thought it was out of my reach. Now I realize that it isn't.
Long ago it used to be that even the poorest of homes had an original painting. It was thought that the art would inspire and elevate those in the home. It does. There's an energy that a painting brings with it. Look at the images of art in homes below.
What feelings to you feel from the images? Does it inspire you? Do you think it would inspire your family to have art in your home? Tell us.

This isn't a site about art, just celebrating style. But, in showing off the unique dressing choices of the women
you catch a glimpse of their art choices. Oriental hangings, mobiles, handkerchiefs, skeletal prints, and paintings. Interestingly, most of these women had art, fine art, in their surroundings.
Even though this wasn't about photographing their personal artistic galleries it still came through.
