Design Basics Series – Art
This is the final installment of our Design Basics Series, and it’s one of our favorite topics – ART! We love art and have collected some vintage art over the years that we absolutely love. Chandler says it in the episode, but art really is one of the easiest ways to express who you are and who your family is in your home. And in conjunction with this episode, we have some exciting news – we are launching an online store! We hope to add products over time, but we are starting with, you guessed it, art! Specifically, digital art prints. We are offering six beautiful vintage digital art prints to begin with that we are so excited about. Be sure to check them out at The Peach and Pine Collection.
