Relevant Art

I love having art in my home, but I find I have a hard time finding art that is relevant to home life.  I'm a fan of images that calm and that idealize domesticity.... seems appropriate for a domestic setting to me.  More appropriate than war heroes or even still lives.  While my ideal is always to have an original, here are a  few I wouldn't mind a high quality print or reproduction of.  (I think I must have been hungry when choosing these.... most of these people are eating.)
