Kristy's choice 1: Large abstract art
K: I adore the clean, uncluttered lines of modern art and the way it can look just a little different at every glance. My favorite thing to do with a piece like this is to put it in a more traditional room. The contrast is amazing.
K: In a room like this, a traditional oil would just feel wrong. One of my favorite things about this piece is that it adds movement to a wall and looks a little bit different at every glance. I would love to see it over a mantle.
Beth's choice 2: Natural specimens
B: I'm a big fan of art that brings the outdoors in. Coral is beautiful in any room, especially in a coastal home. Kristy and I both love shadow boxes with interesting things inside.
Beth and Kristy: We both agree that this hanging system is incredible. We are huge fans of groupings that take up almost an entire wall.
For a similar effect with a personal touch, we love walls of black and white family photos. They're artistic, inexpensive and serve as a reminder of your happiest times whenever you walk by!
