We have some AMAZING sponsors contributing their goods and services to Room Fu’s Guest Room Giveaway! When we thought about all that we would need to trick out someone’s guest bedroom decor, one of the first things that came to mind was art. When a client asks for recommendations on local artists–especially those clients who are relocating to Austin and want to get connected to local art, Judy Paul is always at the top of my list. Her distinctive work appeals to many different tastes and she’s so prolific, you’re bound to come across many pieces you’d go crazy for, no matter what type of art or subject matter you’re drawn to.
