Catherine Heraghty of The Stables share, Once you have your main pieces of furniture locked in, you should then choose your framed artwork. This will set the style of accessories that you buy for your living space as well as the colour. Choose artwork that you connect with…Don’t go for something just because you saw it on Instagram, try and find meaning in it and you will always have a relationship with it!
