Like Love Want
A new contemporary online art gallery, Like Love Want, launches this week. The horizontally scrolling website has been designed to recreate the experience of visiting an art gallery and was inspired by the clean lines of the Guggenheim Museum in New York. It showcases a variety of art styles, including oil paintings, abstract and macro photography, screen prints, works on paper, original art and limited edition prints. The user experience of the site is really fluid and allows you to glide back and forth between the different collections really easily.

What's really great about this site though is a clever little tool that allows you to view any pieces you like in your own home by simply uploading a photo.
Want to see how it works? I decided to try it out using a picture of our living room. Here's a 'Before' shot of the room. The paintings we currently have above the sofa are by Dorian Bowen.
And here's an 'After' shot showing an original handmade screenprint by Emma Lawrenson entitled 'Yellow Form II' that I chose from the Like Love Want website.
It's a great easy-to-use little tool and lots of fun. Give it a try.
