Cuban artwork is stretched, framed and up!

So a few weeks back, I posted about a piece of art that my husband and I picked up in Cuba and whether it should be framed or stretched.  You can click here to read that post.

Well, if you have read that post, you know that I decided to have it stretched and then simply framed.  I had a few reasons for this and when Michaels had a framing sale, I went ahead with it.

Here’s the result, just got it hung up this weekend and I love how it pops against the navy walls in my dining room.

CUBAN ARTWORK IN NAVY DINING ROOM

CUBAN ARTWORK IN NAVY DINING ROOM

I’m very happy with my decision.  It’s the kind of piece that I can see moving around the house, which always means you made a good art choice.  But I am loving it here, for now.

I had some exciting news on Monday morning, I was included in Point 2 Homes’ list of Ottawa’s top design firms. 🙂 Click here to read the article.

    Looks fantastic Lisa. I was in the “frame” camp. The frame gives it the formality it needs for the dining room and the colours provide the casual eclectic vibe that the piece can stand on an room.

  2. Oh my word, Lisa, we must have just missed you in Cuba! We were there from Jan. 14-19. Our son-in-law is from Cuba, and we finally made it for a visit. I am loving what you did with that piece of art. The vibrant hues against that wall color are amazing! And I absolutely love your style of mixing antiques with sleek lines. I think we must have a lot in common 🙂
