I have a weird streak.
Im not the type of person who wants to be weird. At least not from a home decor standpoint. Some people go out of their way to put in a quirky touch of personality that goes against the grain. I always admire those homes and think "how cool" but its just not my way to do it in my own house. Im too busy trying to just get it to look the way I imagine it. While I don't stop myself from adding my personal treasures, I don't feel it necessary for every room to scream that I live there. I know I live there. But I have recently discovered that there is one area where I diverge from my tendenancy to be mainstream. I like spooky paintings!
At first I thought it was just a one off. My father had this painting hanging in his house and I always liked it. He picked it up at some sort of junk market. I always found it hard to look away from it because it captivated me. When he passed away, I knew I wanted this painting and kept it for the day when I would be able to use it.
I think its safe to say most people would not like this painting but I think its striking. I can't wait to hang it! Its going to go into the middle room, aka the music room which is across from the built-in unit.
I figured that was the extent of my freaky collection. But then earlier this week I discovered this on ebay. Naturally I got outbid a long while before it hit its max price but Mr. Limestone knew I wanted it and bid on it at the last second.
Im not sure where I will hang this. I'll have to see it in person to determine which lucky room is getting her. Any suggestions?
