Choosing the Right Art for a Colorado Cabin Remodel
We live in Colorado, so when we say mountain cabin, we think of a cozy place sheltered by rugged rock outcroppings, blue spruce, pine trees, and surrounded by meadow grasses and wildflowers. It's rugged terrain with far reaching vistas.
Wild horses, buffalo, and Native American Indians really did roam here. And you can still find Indian arrowheads, if you know what to look for.
When we remodeled this small Colorado Cabin, it was only right that the art reflect the history and the setting.
A Native American theme in the rugs and colors was the perfect way to blend indoors with outdoors and stay true to the spirit of the land.
Horse photography provided the accent that added interest without competing with the natural "art" visible from every window. It all came together to create a mood that complements the setting and provides a great escape for the visitor.

Guidelines for Selecting Art
Size, shape, and where you hang art makes all the difference. Think of the wall you're trying to fill and everything near it as one surface. You want to create a sense of flow and continuity.
This applies to any room, like a painting above a bed in a bedroom, or over a desk in an office, or near a buffet in a dining room, or over a sofa in a living room.
Horse Photography and Western Prints
Art for staging a home has a different purpose than art that's collected for personal reasons. When someone collects art, it's because there's something about the piece that speaks to them. Art for staging purposes is designed to sell the home.
