Here’s a designer trick for oversized artwork, when you can’t afford an original painting for the entire wall. Buy two of the same pieces of abstract art (these floral pieces were discounted at a home goods store), and then hang one upside down, says Jennifer Foster with Eanes Foster Design. It looks like a diptych and takes up a large amount of wall space for maximum effect, she says.
As seen on Home Town, Ben and Erin Napier have completely renovated the Johnikin residence in Laurel, Mississippi. The kitchen looks completely different. A large beam ran through the middle of the space breaking it up into two parts. The dark red color and mismatched cabinets were all removed. After renovations, the bright and clean space now have ample cabinet storage and mood lighting to create a relaxing evening atmosphere. The pink door was also added to match the painting above the range that Erin Napier created for Ebonee.
