Fear of Commitment
Next week my uncle is coming to do some renovation work on our living room and I can't wait to share the changes with you! It's definitely going to be a slow evolution as we get time and money to work on the room over the next several months, but I need some advice/opinions STAT.
need want to purchase a piece of art to hang prominently in the room as part of the update and I'm in need of advice. Something about buying ART, even if it is a reproduction, intimidates me. I feel like it's a momentous occasion and I'm rendered utterly incapable of pulling the trigger on my own.
There is virtually NO color in our room currently. Gray walls (love them) dark brown coffee table (love it), brown sofas (hopefully getting the slipcover treatment soon)...you get the idea. I want to bring in a piece that I can draw colors out of for the rest of the room. And lately I've been hung up on reds, indigos and golden hues.
What do you think of these??
Van Gogh - The Red Vineyard at Arles
Van Gogh - The Sower
Hokusai - Ocean Waves
Cezanne - Mount Sainte Victoire (1906)
Van Gogh - Wheatfield with Cypresses
I want something bold, but not something that I'm going to tire of looking at ALL the time. I'm thinking of buying from art.com...has anyone had a good experience buying from them or another online art reproduction company? If you're reading this I really need your opinion. So leave a comment okay! Thanks!
