This trend is not simply about taking an old fashioned portrait and hanging it in your home, it’s about adding a touch of the unexpected to your home. You need something that is beautiful on its own but is also unexpected either in its placement or in its environment. A touch of the rustic in an elegant home. A modern light fixture in a traditional room. A dark, traditional oil painting in a pale, simple environment.
Tasteful and classic are nice, but a small dose of the unexpected is fantastic.
