A fine work of art – music, dance, painting, story – has the power to silence the chatter in the mind and lift us to another place.Robert McKee
It’s been a long time since I bought any art. Our little farmhouse was so small. Our city home was so established. We had no need for more that what was already hanging on the walls.
But, suddenly, I am itching for new art.
Here we are in our treehouse. When I first moved in it was, quite honestly, intimidating. The previous owners had virtually no art. Everything was minimalist, all clean lines and space. We moved some of our stuff in, and sat with that space. It seemed find to have these big windows and empty walls.
Now we’ve been here long enough that it feels like our own home, rather than us camping in someone else’s space.
Some of the art we own will fit in this new style of house. We’re talking about how that can look, and thinking about painting some of these white and stone coloured walls with bolder colours.
Some of our art we will let go, because it no longer works with who we’ve become, or the new spaces we are creating.
We have empty walls begging for colour and new canvases. We have spaces for new sculptures and ceramics and wonderful objects made by people expressing themselves.
A whole new journey.
I’ll update you as we find new treasures. The hunt for new art is on!
Hugs, colour charts and curiosity, Nicole xx

Sculpture art can be stunning, unless it is fragile and you have cats. Which is why we have little or things that are unbreakable. It will be fun to see your finds and colors!
