Hundertwasser Haus art at home ...

In the previous post, I shared my visit to the Hundertwasser Haus village in Vienna.  Because we were doing a lot of travel, I decided to buy a colourful silk scarf that caught my eye with its vibrant colours & bold, modern design.

 Our diningroom has tartan curtains in winter but lighter ones in summer. I also like to change the paintings around & add more blue China & ornaments.

Bringing in the blue & white patterns on the dining room sideboard. The two ladies are a regular feature because I don’t have another good space for them. The white linen & lace cloth is a vintage one. Bolder faux lilies look good in the blue & white vase

The tartan curtains were changed this week for my lighter ones as it look freshers with the blue orchid pots. However, the large painting needs to be changed for something brighter 

I like to change art around too; this huge traditional oil painting has presence & warmth.  The large traditional floral oil painting always looks right alongside the orchids but it does have breaks in the garage

I often swap it for this framed fabric art - I love the exoticness of it & how it fields like a family crest. However, these both need a break ...  

 I bought a silk scarf on a visit to Hundertwasser Haus in Vienna last year & today I decided it was time to frame it because something different is needed. Don’t you just love this bold design?

First step, iron the scarf creases out with a cool iron & a pressing cloth because it is silk ...

This large Ikea Nyttja frame is the right size. Because I like to frame numerous art & images, I buy these inexpensive black Ikea frames in various sizes so I always have something I can use. My last frame this size - mental note - I need an Ikea visit once they reopen & the rush is over.  This might seem daunting but it is not. I buy black Ikea frames in various sizes so I can frame off things & the frames unite the randomness.

I used very thin double sided tape at regular intervals along all the frame sides to secure the scarf; being silk, it is a bit slippery so a bit of time now makes for a better finished image. I used the paper insert as I didn’t have a large enough sheet of card & it worked just fine once the clear front & backing sheets were put back on.

This did not take long & the colours & bold pattern are a lovely change from the gentle floral painting that has been up  all winter. The orchids will soon be in flower with their bold colour too ...

Lovely colour & a bold modern print are the perfect change ...

I love colour & use coloured glass candlesticks & mismatched candles to bring interest in to this room. I love how well the bold, modern image fits in here ...

An hours work is all it took for this framing
