When doing online room consultations, one of my most requested services is finding the perfect window treatments.

Commissioning Custom Artwork

June 2, 2017

It seems as if I have been looking for years for that new piece of perfect artwork to hang over my living room fireplace:

It is not easy finding that perfect piece! Perfect size, perfect colors and perfect price. Impossible! I researched a bit and decided to go to a local artist Sue Dion Art, to have a custom made, just-for-me, perfect piece of artwork commissioned. If you are wondering where to begin having a special piece of art custom made for you, I read an informative article on the Do’s and Don’t when hiring an artist for a commission called The “ Newbie’s” Guide to Commissioning Artwork.  Very helpful and thorough.

The basic questions the artist needed to know to begin, was the finished size I desired, what colors I wanted to be included in the color palette and the style and mood I wanted to convey, soft or bold. The perfect size was measured, (I decided on a canvas print because I needed a large piece and it will also cost much less expensive than a framed piece of art). For the perfect color palette in my living room, it would have to include blue and white:
