Looking to spruce up a friend’s recovery area? Consider loaning or creating a particular piece of art to be a focal point of the room.

Digital travel or family event photos can be put on a DVD slide show. Posters, sculptures, and other mainstream forms of art would be a nice touch, as would larger canvas pieces with a theme enjoyed by the patient. If the person is into astronomy, the NASA web site is a great source for deep space images which can be put into a digital “slide show” for enjoyment. This idea can be implemented with any type of theme image, such as botanicals, ocean scenes, wildlife, or other nature images. Large weavings are also interesting and add an earthy element to the room as well.
