I just absolutely adore art as a way of decorating a home. It sings and speaks to me in a way wallpaper simply can’t. It is an investment, an appreciation and an absolute pleasure to have original art in your home.
I have an original drawing by Quentin Blake and an etching by Eileen Soper (she illustrated the Famous Five books). There were both bought for my children and are without doubt my most favourite pieces of interior decor. They make our home unique and reflect the personalities of my children.
I have long hankered after a Pop Arr piece for myself. I love the vibrancy, the simplicity and familiarity of images and the contemporary look and utter charm of Pop Art. It makes me smile.
Two pieces I would absolutely love to own and display in our home can be found at The Belgravia Gallery in London
This signed limited edition silkscreen print by Peter Blake I would put in our hall way. What a fabulously colourful welcome it would bring.
The Robert Indiana lithograph would be for our bedroom, it is cool and elegant and rather serene.
Over at London’s Belgravia Gallery there is a fine selection of not only Pop Art but a host of diverse art to appeal across the board. The Belgravia Gallery is set in Mayfair and has the most wonderful exhibitions and collections of art, they have even hosted Nelson Mandela’s art.
The gallery is run by mother and daughter Anna Hunter and Laura Walford and is an interestiong, ever changing place to visit. Their current exhibition is in honour of the Queens 90th birthday and has some fascinating Royal Art on display.
Art is truly a lovely way to decorate your home and it is well worth taking in a gallery or two when planning your interiors.
