Star Of Wonder, Star Of Night, Star With Royal Beauty Bright....
I've been working on a space that is almost done, but requires a large statement piece of art to be complete.
A great piece of art brings mood, personality, flair, and a sense of drama to a space.
I'm leaning towards photography...
During my research I paid a visit to the NASA site for the Hubble Space Telescope.
The Hubble was launched in 1990 and is expected to function until 2014 when its scientific successor, the James Webb Space Telescope, is due to be launched.
Look what I found:
Imagine any of the above three, enlarged to about 4'x4', over an entrance hall console.
I see this beauty in a bedroom, possibly over a mantel.
Either one....over a sofa...about 5'x5'... stunning!
....top of the staircase, or at the end of a hallway.
Now, here's the best news....It's free! Nasa doesn't charge to download their breathtaking pictures.
This site is a true find. You could spend hours on it.
Send your kids there during the holiday break.
And speaking of the holidays, they even have free Christmas cards to download, and they are quite beautiful...
Pay this site a visit and I guarantee that you'll be inspired too. K
