The Art Of Displaying Art

November 16th, 2010 | City LivingRejuvenating The Button FactoryCollege Street/Little Italy

Not to be present myself as too ornery, but this blog was originally going to be a rant on one of my many housing pet peeves. As a realtor unlocking the doors of dozens of homes each month, I'm constantly seeing the Number One no-no of showcasing art. What is it you… Read Full Entry

Ok, I'm sure you know well by now I'm a product of the 70s, so please forgive the 'Stairway To Heaven' reference on a stair railing blog. It simply can't be helped given 'Stairway To Heaven' is, without doubt, one of the greatest rock anthems ever created!
