People with money

How come people with money put art and not their family on the walls of their family home? It looks very nice, but it creeps me out and feels unwelcoming and unwarm lol. Being broke, I love family photos.

*I have learned this in more than a handful of marketing workshops and it seems to hold true when visiting people. I am sure it is not ALL people with money am NO I am not judging you, I just wonder. 

Please note this is personal opinion. I will have to put too many warnings so no one gets twisted here on CM but its opinion that it looks unwarm and I said ME not creeps everyone out and makes them feel as if it is unwarm. It am not claiming it does this to everyone.

If you are offended or feel snarky about whatever it is you can come up with, breath, I did not mean it that way.

Because art is beautiful on walls. I put the family pictures in frames on surfaces. It's your opinion that art is "unwarm," not fact. You seem to be confusing the two.

I grew up with money... we had art on our walls, but my parents also had lots and lots of family photos (both snapshots and professional portaits) displayed, too.

We aren't what I would consider wealthy, but DH and I do collect art and in most of the rooms of our house we have paintings and framed textiles on the walls.  We move around a lot for DH's work and like to purchase art from the countries we live in.  I really enjoy meeting artists and always try to make a connection with a particular artist and their subject matter before a purchase.  The pieces have meaning to us.

In our hallway, we have family photos and paintings going back many generations.  

Our kitchen and family room are filled with framed pictures of our children's artwork.  These "works of art" are my favorite.

No. I am not confused and I never said FACT: Art is umwarm. I also said I wasn't judging so to mean it was just my opinion and that it looks very nice. I should have spelled it out better so you couldn't add things I did not say. While I guess I did not directly say this is my personal opinion I also did not directly say this is fact. I think you seem to be confusing things.

We know some very wealthy people that do not have any family photos on their walls, everything is really impersonal I agree. Then there is this doctor we know and every room I've seen has pictures of his family blown up huge, every room with a different timeframe and theme like black and white, sepia, color... his house is so warm, friendly, and inviting.

My guess is that some feel the need to be professional and feel that art best accomplishes that.

Lol. Nice try. This is one of the stupidest posts I've seen in a while. It's like me making a post asking why people wear green sweaters.

cause they can? lol idk but i don't think it's just people that have money. i know a lot of people that just don't like having family pictures all over the walls...and i def wouldn't consider them to "have money". i think its just personal preference..to each their own, ya know?
