I like the thoughtfulness in your decisions about incorporating art into a home. Ideally when people choose art there's more than one reason they select a piece. And even though artists like myself work hard to create art that elicits deep connections and meaning, at the end of the day it needs to live in someone's house and get along with the other elements in the room. You had a lot of great examples and I enjoyed learning about the thinking behind the choices.
