My Top Paint Selecting Tips

Paint is one of my favorite ways to update a space on a budget and within a relatively quick turnaround. Whether you plan to hire it out or paint on your, it's definitely an update that can stop you in your tracks because the results can be that good!

Paint is also really easy to screw up - no pressure or anything! No but seriously, paint is a super easy cosmetic update but it's important to follow some basic guidelines while you're in the decision making phase. Often times people don't take into account the different factors that can ultimately make your fresh, new paint job come out not so great or even worse, not how you imagined.

Tips For Selecting Art + My Current Favorites

Art is one of those things that can either make or break a space. A poor choice in art can make a space look cheesy, while an awesome choice in art can take a space to the next level (in a good way!). With that said, art is extremely personal which can make it difficult to select if you're not entirely sure what you like or even what will work with your space. There are SO many different types of art - painting, mixed media, drawing, photography, etc. So when you're trying to select art for your space but are feeling a little stumped, my first rule would be to determine what you like or even what you don't like to rule out the obvious. For me, I gravitate towards paintings but also like very selective photography-type art.
