My friend Litsa Spanos (who owns ADC, Art Design Consultants) recently started a new blog. It’s all about interior design trends, inspiring ideas, and features on local artists. I’m helping her insert video in her blog, which is exciting because I’ve been learning so much and meeting so many amazing local artists in the process.

If you find yourself wearing soft neutral tones, and cozy winter sweaters you may like canvas paintings with romantic tones or whimsical brush strokes—looks that bring warmth and comfort to any room. If you like feminine florals and summer dresses you may also like floral art—whether it is traditionally “realistic” or representative. If you like fashion that portrays strength—structured blazers or leather accents, you may like copper or metal art that expresses confidence…. keep reading here….
