The Art I Heart

Ever since I visited Tory Burch a few weeks ago, I can't stop thinking about something I saw.  No, it wasn't the Reva flats or that beautiful snakeskin clutch.  It was 2 matted black and white photos on the wall, framed in the most beautiful gold I think I have ever seen.  Since seeing those photos, I've been craving some similar frames for my own walls. 



Designing your wall art and purchasing art in general is a very personal process.   Everyone responds differently to paintings and pictures, and it is important to purchase only the art you truly, truly love.  After all, you're the one that will look at it every day!  Ever since my love-at-first-sight experience inside Tory, I have been especially loving gold frames. 



I really love the idea of printing off your favorite photos and arranging them systematically.



 To give it a more eclectic taste, though, I think I would mix in other colors, art mediums, and sizes.




{Image unknown- can someone help?}

Do you have a favorite piece of artwork?  Why does it speak to you so much?  Any tips on becoming a better art-buyer?
