LARGE SCALE ABSTRACT ART DIY

Large Scale Art DIY #CaesarstoneUS

Nothing makes my heart sing quite like art. I love finding originals, discovering talented artists, and filling my home with unique pieces.

Plus, sometimes being in an urban environment during the holidays takes its toll on a person’s energy level. Whatever the reason, there are years when I don’t feel much like decorating for the season.

But when it’s one of those times and I’m not going to put in the time on my own décor at home for the holidays, there’s still a simple and elegant way to bring in some spirit—in a completely urban holiday way: hanging a strand or two of lights.
