These two prints from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice pushed me over the finishing line. On the left is the print of Rene Magritte's Empire of Light; and on the right Alberto Giacometti's Woman Walking.
I played with different layouts on the floor until I found the most visually-balanced option.
The rest was all math, a lot of measuring and hammering.
While I was sorting out the artworks for the gallery, I also found an old acrylic painting of mine, a reproduction of Monet's Agapanthus. While the colours and style didn't work for the gallery wall, on a whim I had it framed anyways.
Luckily I was able to find a spot in our kitchen dining room for it. I like the touch of colours it adds to the space.
I had shared this picture on my Instagram last week, the black white and gold theme I had on my coffee table in the living room. I had an orchid plant there for the longest time, but it wasn't doing too well because there's not enough sunlight reaching the middle of my living room. Once I relocated the orchid, I was in desperate need of adding variations of heights to my tablescape. Then by chance I saw these vintage brass candlesticks right next to my TV, adorned them with plain white stick candles, and done! I really should try to shop at home more. :)
I will be back to write about our trip to Dubrovnik in the next post.
