Going through a couple of February design magazines, I found myself ripping out several pages with loveliness. I can tell you that if I had oodles of extra cash I would, without any hesitation, invest in lovely art pieces, way before I would even consider building a nice shoe collection! Yes, really.
This butterfly painting by Hunt Slonem is absolutely stunning. And butterflies are so friendly! I love the entire design of this area. The composition and the scale of all the things are simply perfect. Just a few pieces but the fewer items the harder to get it right.
The well respected fabric designe/multimedia artist, Kazumi Yoshida, made this white composition above the fireplace for his Tribeca loft. I have a very similar white monochromatic art piece above one of my fireplaces. It is my favorite art object in the entire house. If you are interested I will show it in another post.
I find this large photograph of literature so lovely and interesting. I don’t know who the artist is behind it. I might need to contact the talented interior designers — Jim Gauthier & Susan Stacey. They did such an amazing job with the entire loft (a showhouse in conjunction with the Boston Design Center).
The same design duo is also behind this stunning room filled with wonderful artifacts. But what I really go nuts for is that Greek Key pattern ottoman. Drool.
A decorative porcelain Lladro vase (“Canvas”). I bet this is going to be a tomorrow’s antique. It is not exactly cheap at $1800 but it is already a classic. The small decorative blossom cup found at Global Table is also very pretty. Put some makeup brushes/or black or white pencils in it and give as a gift to a friend.
I will be out of commission for a couple of days but will check in with all of my wonderful blog friends shortly.
Warm hugs to all of my readers.
