A Place To Hang Art

One cloudy day on vacation last week we decided to meander over to this year's Hampton Designer Showhouse which was presented by Traditional Home to benefit Southampton Hospital.
Bodenchak Design and Build
What comes first, the home or the art? In this case, Bodenchak Design has provided a blank canvas for the interior designers to create a dream decor, choosing art that compliments the furnishings.

For me, the art comes first and then I figure out where it fits into the decorating scheme. I could easily get out of control and have a home with walls looking like Gertrude Stein's apartment in Paris.

What comes first for you? 
The love of a painting or the color of your couch?

This room off the kitchen was lovely and serene.

Lowy has a wall of beautiful antique reproduction frames. 
Framing masterpieces since 1907, they would be the ones to go to if the mover drops your Monet.
