"Art is Like a Love Affair"


Art in homes and offices provides a certain energy. Walls assume the
value of windows and doors - paintings and photographs can become
portals through which the viewer can engage, travel, gaze.

Acquire what you love, what speaks to you personally. You and your
partner do not need to love the same work - a space is so much more
interesting when each partner collects work based on their own passion.
This varied approach to collecting creates rich interest in a space and
it ensures that art has not been selected by committee. Art is like a
love affair. Once you have it in your life you are unwilling to do
without.


Living room 1


Lighting not only creates ambiance in a room, it enables your art to be viewed
regardless of the time of day. This ceiling is 20 feet tall. A track
light was suspended from the ceiling to showcase the work.


Living room 2


A picture rail (similar to a chair rail, simply wider) is a wonderful way
to show art in any room in a home or office. Modern metal picture rails
are available in many interior design stores or wooden trim can be
customized to achieve the result illustrated in this dining room.

Living room 3


Work by a variety of artists adds interest to a room. Mixing photography and
painting, with sensitivity, can also have wonderful results. Notice how
the work is presented, two different frames and canvas on a gallery
stretcher - unframed with edges finished.
