Luxe Fashion Meets Decor: Scarves As Art

In my opinion, artwork is one of the most challenging aspects of home decor.  I often find it difficult to come across unique, original and affordable art.  Ideally, it would be great to have a beautiful collection of original artwork...but until the bank account allows, I need to get creative and mix it up! Lately, I've been noticing beautiful silk scarves, framed and used as art! Brilliant!


Check out some of the amazing pieces of art...I mean scarves out there right now!

A few weeks ago I celebrated my 30th birthday.  Joe, my husband (and a particularly great gift giver), presented me with a beautifully, iconic orange box...Hermes! (Thirty isn't so bad after all!)  I was ecstatic to discover a beautiful silk scarf inside! Along with it came a box of suggestion cards on how to wear/use the scarf.  I never realized how many wonderful uses there are for scarves!  But I got to thinking...even with all the great options, I might not use it or admire it nearly as much as I'd like...Unless, however, I framed it!!! Then I could enjoy my beautiful gift all the time!

I still need to pick out a frame and matting option but stay tuned for the finish product!

In a way, for an art-lover like myself, decorating our home is quite easy. I just please myself mostly, with my poor husband going along with most of my choices. I am always collecting beautiful things, like handicraft decorative pieces, little sculptures and hangings.
And I simply hang lovely paintings in all our rooms. Not all are originals of course, as who can afford many of those.
I order many prints on canvas from Wahooart who have a vast collection of images from Western art, that you can choose to make economically-priced prints like this Interior in Aubergines, by Henri Matisse, from there.
I can choose the frames as well and my orders are delivered quickly to my home.
