'Interior experts reveal the home items they always splurge on' 
Lauren Powell

'Dusty Pink' in situ, interior by Greg Natale.



”I’ve always been a big advocate of allocating some of your interior design money for art — and if you can push the budget that little bit further, I encourage my clients to collect at least one good oil painting for their collection — they contain so much depth. Art in the home can take on any number of roles. It can contrast, complement, draw a scheme together or make its own statement. My own home brings together sculpture, paintings, prints and mixed-media works. They each contribute character and a point of interest that I never get bored of.” Greg Natale, designer.

Thank you Greg Natale for your on going support of the arts.

In her artwork, Terri Brooks moves concrete observations to another domain in which they adopt a new nature and quality. Because of this transposition, we as a viewer are challenged to experience reality from a new perspective and an unusual framework. In this way we arrive at the essence of visual art that wants nothing more than to expand our world of experience and broaden our horizons ... Curator, Wim van der Beek 2018.
