I enjoyed reading your article and so true, 'you' have to live with it and 'your' choice is what makes a home a home and not a boutique hotel with 'boutique' art.
I also think that some art suits some rooms and some not. The bedroom springs to mind. Do you know Sir William Russell Flint's work? For me those water colours of Cecelia and friends are most certainly bedroom art while ... oh but who could I choose as an example for other rooms? Breughal maybe for the dining room or kitchen? But the list goes on nearly forever as we all like different things anyway and so on.
I love and have a large mounted poster of Gaughan in my home office - can't remember what it is called but it is a very common one readily seen on any poster site with this beautiful Polynesian lady carrying papayas. In your face is what a friend of mine said once. Tut I answered, no, on the wall in MY office!
Frames, canvas, photos, wallpapers - phew the list is nearly endless really when it comes to decorating with your own definition of what constitutes art for you.
Don't you just love the choices we have in life?
