We love the statement art above the sofa! Tell us the significance of that piece.

Thank you! Wall art can be expensive, so I decided to channel my inner artiste to create my own. I bought a huge canvas and spent two days painting it in the kitchen while listening to music to get me in the creative mood. I've always loved painting growing up, but I'm still no pro, so I figured the only style I could really get away with is abstract. Great thing about abstract art is that anyone can do it. There's no right or wrong way, it can look like anything! I purchased five colors of acrylic paint and mixed the rest. I wanted the piece to reflect and match the current living space, so naturally I incorporated the same color scheme I used throughout decorating the apartment. But I definitely recommend making your own statement art. It's cost effective but more importantly, it's therapeutic, gratifying, and a fantastic way to spend quality time with yourself!
