His clean lines and monochromatic palettes are so desirable. The design looks fresh and tailored. Wolf sometimes throws in variations of subtle textures-- like a zebra rug, mildly ornate furniture trim, and an artwork with patterns. It's such a tiny way of making the look less boring and expected-- used in the way a patterned scarf or some jewelry makes an outfit.
Talk to Dee Marksberry at Gage-Martin Interiors about how to achieve a look like this: firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Don't base your art decisions on the color of your couch. While you don't want your art to clash with your furniture, don't dismiss an artwork you admire solely because the palette doesn't work. Eventually, it will all come together.
2. Presentation is important. Framing an artwork can be tricky, if done improperly it can cheapen an otherwise beautiful piece. Contemporary pieces usually don't need anything bulky. A simple black, white, medium wood, silver, or gold frame will work based on the temperature of the piece. A mat works well for photos.
3. Consult someone. If you're interested in collecting some beautiful work that you'll cherish for as long as possible, you can always consult us email@example.com

Recipe: Pulled Pork Shoulder
“Barbecue's not a spontaneous thing,” says Ed Mitchell, who cooks his cue at The Pit in Raleigh. “It takes time and planning. But with barbecue, something good is about to happen.”
What you'll need
8–10 lb Boston butt
2 Tbsp salt
2 Tbsp black pepper
1 Tbsp cayenne pepper
4 cups hickory or oak chips
10–15 lb charcoal briquettes
How to make it
1. In a deep dish, place the shoulder with enough vinegar and water to cover (2 parts vinegar to 1 part water), along with the salt, black pepper, and cayenne. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 2 to 3 hours).
2. Follow this smoking technique, and cook covered for 31/2 to 4 hours, until very tender. Allow the meat to rest for about 30 minutes and pull pieces off by hand.

1. Mix together cider vinegar, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and cayenne to taste. Use it to accent the pork's natural flavors.
