I can’t believe the big 4-0 is only a couple of weeks away! Holy moly, don’t I feel old all of a sudden! When we signed up to build, I had high hopes of celebrating the milestone birthday in our dream home. Obviously that is now but a wishful thinking unless Metricon let us have a party at the block! Plan B is to have a combined belated birthday and house warming celebrations later in the year.
I’m also surprised by how much I’ve changed since we started the building journey. A year ago I would have been delighted to receive a nice bling (aka jewellery) for my birthday. Now I prefer a bling of a different kind, something like the Tom Dixon ‘Etch Web Brass’ that I’m coveting for my walk-in!
Hubby is yet to be convinced about the pendant and he reckons such a momentous occasion deserves a more personal and special gift like a beautiful piece of art. Who am I to argue? And with a new house to decorate, I think a statement piece is the ultimate present.
Well, I’ve earmarked our entrance for the ‘wow factor’, something beautiful and contemporary and RED! I lurve Aboriginal art and I think their bright vibrant colourful hues are the perfect something to go on the entry wall!
So the search is well underway and lucky for me, the interweb is a goldmine of Australian Indigenous art gallery. I think I’ve narrowed down the front runners. As I browsed through the vast array of artworks, I was instantly drawn to the works of the talented sister artists Tarisse and Sarrita King. It was love at first sight! I just find their works mesmerising and I’d be over the moon to have any one of these beautiful modern pieces in our home.
