New art on basement landing

I bought this painting specifically for the basement landing. We went with a white portrait frame, even though the image is landscape. I used kraft paper to test out the size of the matte to make sure I got the dimensions right.  I wanted to see the image as you came down the stairs, without hanging it too low.

I love the fresh pastel colours alongside the grey tones! 

ps. I bought the picture on impulse from another blogger, Samantha Sano, here is my original post.

    I was happy to see the reminder about the Steven & Chris show this morning, and was able to catch it this afternoon since I was home with the kids. Your house looked fantastic and you seemed very natural in front of the camera. But it was funny to hear you - for some reason I imagined you with a german accent!

  3. That is hilarious! I wish I had a German accent! Or maybe Dutch, like my grandmother!!!
