Al­bert Avel­lana stresses that art­work re­ally en­hances a house, and that you don’t have to be filthy rich to ac­quire or find art. “Iba ang nagagawa na

may art sa ba­hay, iba ta­laga ang feel, iba ang dat­ing, kasi art is very per­sonal,” he says. here are his tips. 1. Start with chil­dren’s art or fam­ily

pho­tos. “Kung wala ka pang bud­get to buy paint­ings, you can start with your kids’ works or your pho­tos, kasi you’re con­nected with that,” Al­bert says. “Ma­g­a­nda yung kids’ works

dahil yung ex­pres­sions, very honest.” 2. Don’t stick to a move­ment or theme. “get what­ever you like. it doesn’t have to be the­matic, basta in the end, they gel. Kung gusto mo

ang art, ikaw ’yan―it’s a re­flec­tion of you.” 3. Don’t col­lect for the sake of col­lect­ing. “the home­own­ers should not just think kung sino ang col­lectible ngayon, kahit sabi­hin nila for in­vest­ment. in­vest first for your­self, kasi ev­ery day makikita mo ’yan so da­pat sulit ’yan.” 4. Dis­play and frame it prop­erly. “get as­sis­tance kung paano mo

i-en­hance or how to put it up, frame it,” Al­bert ad­vises. “Kahit yung art projects ng bata, i-box-frame mo, parang art in­stal­la­tion.”
