Preparing For The Year Ahead

By Artscotland
Happy New Year!

New Year is the time when we take the Christmas decorations down, begin our spring-cleaning and make a fresh start, preparing for the year ahead.

Christmas is a wonderful however stressful time for most of us, and the best way to de-stress is to have a clear out. I heard once that a cluttered house makes a cluttered mind, so why not sell your unwanted items at a car boot sale, or on the Internet and then use the money you made to buy some cheerful art to lift your spirits and add color to your home.

After selling some bits and bobs online I have just treated myself this painting by Monica Paton and I cant wait to find a place for it.

Preparing For The Year Ahead

Monica Paton’s lovely mixed media paintings are very affordable and they are perfect for adding warmth and personality to your walls.

Garry Jones’s comical ceramics are a great way to bring some humor to even the dullest of days. His clever play on words with his sheep and cow sculptures cant help but make you laugh.

Preparing For The Year Ahead

These glass hearts by Sue Parry are ideal for scattering around the house to add a pop of color and light. Sue also creates tea light holders in the same style so why not mix and match?

Preparing For The Year Ahead

Your home is your own little sanctuary where you wind down and relax at the end of a long day, so why not make it a beautiful, enjoyable place to be?
