Hi, I’m Ann Myrick, and today I’m going to
show you how to pick out art work for the bedroom, and in my opinion, it’s wide open.
It really has to do with what you like. It has to do with the style of the bedroom. It
has to do with formal, informal, and do you like kind of getting out of the box and using
different things, or do you just like staying with art work and frames. I’m a decorator,
so I really like getting out of the box. I have some great old shutters. These just bring
a whole element to the room just like they are. I love using dark and black pieces because
it grounds the room, and kind of anchors a room. I loved the kind of stripped, bumped
look, shabby chic look. So, like I would take these and you could separate them and put
them side by side, or you could, you could put them on the wall going down, or going
across, but they’re just great pieces to use. Also, love using art work from the children.
One where I love groupings. The best way to do a picture grouping is to use like color
of frame. I will always usually choose a black frame. I just like the way black pops off
a wall. I love black thick frames. These were just small, inexpensive frames, and this is
just kind of a grouping of my son. A picture of my son and then two pieces of art work,
so I kind of put like subjects together. Love in a room where you have one big picture,
then on the next wall, instead of having another big picture, you want maybe a grouping of
three. Switch it up, don’t just have square picture, square picture, square picture. Have
architectual pieces. Have crosses, have a metal star, have something, have old architectual
pieces that kind of mix it up, and have it create interest. Instead of one mirror on
the wall, put two mirrors on the wall. Instead of, what you could do with mirror idea is
you could use it like you would a head board, as far as have two identical mirrors square,
and put one here and one here, like over each pillow. Those are ideas for your bedroom.
This is Ann Myrick, and that’s how to pick out art work.
