Podcast chat with Jasmine Edwards

The value of art, Jasmine’s first ever art purchase and meeting Tony Hart…

In this episode of the Art First Interiors podcast, I chat to creative homemaker and online gallery owner, Jasmine Edwards about her art filled home. We talk about her favourite places to source art, making a considered purchase versus an impulsive one and the dreaded, what if my tastes change and I don’t like it in a few years time? doubts.

We delve into the practical considerations in bringing art into your home such as framing and hanging heights, where to place pieces in relation to light and layout of the room and how it can change the way you feel in a space.

Jasmine talks about how art communicates the most intimates part of life and how the art we choose captures and preserves memories and becomes a record of our personal history presenting a strong emotional connection in the home.

So why it is that art and creativity seems to be valued less after the early years of childhood – that academic subjects seem to hold more importance at school and beyond?  Art will always polarize opinion and we hear just what Jasmine’s house guests really think about some of the art in her home – Brace! Brace!

    Can you believe this is the first pod cast I’ve ever listened too ?
    I loved it and I’ve been carrying my iPad from room to room absorbing the wealth of knowledge you two ladies have shared.
    I laughed at times picturing myself wanting to be carrying that wonderful piece of art home or politely asking someone what they have brought and why ( as I’m inquisitive like that)
    I’ve always brought things that I love and I’m drawn to .I appreciate that my choices aren’t always to other people’s liking ( including my husband) but for me that’s absolutely fine.
    Follow your heart and you will always be happy and I too feel that is what art is about
