All About

Dotting the walls with three small plates that seemingly float in space looking for somewhere to land was the wrong way to add something attractive to anchor this area. One large canvas painted in stripes of burgundy and cream shades would have been a better way to fill a large visual void without necessitating a lot of money or artistic skills. The one high note seems to be the addition of drapery that softens the space and adds color and visual appeal to the room. At the end of the day, the room looks about the same as it did before—or possibly worse.
