“Not sure where to begin with your next home decorating project? START with ART!”
Look for inspiration pieces at an art fair, online, or at a favorite store and let that color palette be your guide. Go with your gut choosing abstract, whimsical or true-to-life imagery that creates just the right mood.

LUNCHEON OF THE BOATING PARTY
A fascinating story, though fictionalized, springs from this memorable scene of gathered friends along the river Seine near Paris on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) who painted it is one of the narrators in this colorful account of his life, times, and contributions toward the impressionist style. Enjoy!
Just For "Hue"
WHY A GIFT OF ORIGINAL ART IS A TRUE TREASURE...
"When you buy something from an artist, you’re buying more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy. You’re not buying just one the thing, you are buying a piece of a heart, a piece of a soul...a small piece of someone else’s life."
