I have an abstract nude that I have hung near a bathroom. I thought that was a good spot. The fact that it's abstract helps one's comfort level too. You really have to look to figure it out.

I was more distracted by that fabulous chest of drawers in the Perch photo. Want to ship it to me?

I know you are busy, but I have a favor to ask. A few months ago, you posted a blog and discussed slipcovers. I scoured and searched [glad i did that, saw some things i had missed! fun getting lost] and can't find it. could you please direct me....thanks, kathi

I have no qualms about it whatsoever, as long as it isn't of me.

In a very personal space - ok. In a public room - tacky and very contrived....trying too hard for a "wow" factor.

I agree in a bedroom or bathroom the right piece would be wonderful!

nudes are cool. i mean im not sure i want some spread eagle beaver porn on my wall but tasteful boobies are good. butts are nice male and female. erect penises? no thanks. flacid penises?...meh...not so much. probably all around no to penises in general. i'll just stick with the girly nudes. i kinda like those black sexploitation ones from the 70's. but as usual i would prefer my nudes in unpredictable places. NOT the bathroom or bedroom. yawn. predictable. boring. snore.

Kathi -
The Slip Cover place is Before N' After Slip Covers. Just Google them, and tell them I sent you.

Yeah...In a skinny...or hell, even hippy, minute. A body is a body is a body. All beautiful. All art.

But I'm with the poster above on erect and flacid penises. Naw.

Definitely. Nude art work can look stunning!

OK...funny story. I was invited to my team leader's house for dinner. I walked into the living room and on the wall, over the couch was a huge, lifesized nude of his wife, obviously painted some decades ago.

He explained that his mother commissioned the piece while he was stationed in the Army. He joked, "Some itinerant artist got to see my wife nude more than I had!"

She was a fairly good sport about it, but some months later, I noted that the painting had been moved to the bedroom.

My husband has a print of a rather large spoon in his office. You have to be practically on top of it to see the reflection in the bowl of a nude woman bending over.

Nudes don't bother me at all. I guess that comes from being an art student and drawing them ad nauseum.

We have a 3' Michaelangelo's "David" in our house and we love it :]
