If you are like me one of the last things to go in a room is art and accessories.  I like to see the direction a finished room is going and then figure out where I need a big ole "smack in the face" kind of piece!

One of my go to places for art here in Atlanta is Gregg Irby Gallery.  

Gregg has been a fixture on the art scene in Atlanta for years and all it takes is one visit to her new studio and you can see why!

I was over on the Westside and popped in to check it out.  First of all it's about 10 times bigger which is a good thing!

So many beautiful pieces to choose from.

If you think you can't afford original art then you are wrong.  There are price points for everyone and all kinds of sizes.

Design today is kind of a "anything goes"....with most rules tossed out the window.  I agree a "too perfect" room can be predictable and boring on the other hand....easy there can become a hot mess pretty quick:)

What I am trying to say is that your art does not have to match you decor perfectly.  It can be that one thing in the room that draws the eye in.  Whether it's a large canvas over the mantel or sofa it can also be a few smaller pieces in a great gallery wall.

This is a canvas I bought years ago.....can you imagine this room without all that glorious color above the mantel?  Boring.

And look how easy it is to move around...

Because it is an abstract....I turned it sideways to fit this spot in my living room.....for a change. 
[Shocking huh]

More art from the gallery....

If you don't know where to begin with this art gig.....they will help you pick a great piece out for your's that easy!

This Friday Gregg Irby Gallery is having a little soiree to celebrate the opening of their new gallery!

So go see what's new in the art world!

I want an Erin Gregory original so badly!

My husband and I had our first date on a gallery hop in Decatur, GA. I still regret not buying something that night-- but who would have guessed?

We are so lucky to have the Gregg Irby gallery in Atlanta. I haven't been to the new location yet but I look forward to seeing how they have expanded. The art you featured is stunning. Erin Greggory's flowers are my favorite.

Great colors and I like that you leaned it over the white chest!

Sherry I love so much art in this gallery!! You are so right, anyone can afford original art! I would buy art before curtain panels for example, It makes the largest and most dramatic statement in any room!

Nothing finishes off a room quite like a good piece of art!
