As a designer there are two things that get me excited– big budgets and art. I’ll also add full creative control but I’m always willing to defer to what my client wants– after all it’s their home not mine. I absolutely love when my clients have nice art for me to work with. It makes my job a lot easier because an abundant art collection serves as design inspiration for the space. I had the pleasure of meeting a new client the other day. While touring their home I snapped photos of their art to get my creative juices flowing. Their collection ranged from framed prints to canvas paintings and everything in between. Take a look!
These two pieces are by neo-cubism artist James Kann. He wasn’t on my radar but I immediately fell in love with his work. The bold colors and sharp lines create a playful scene in my client’s library.
In the living room, this piece creates a focal point in a small sitting area. Oversize art always makes an impactful statement and great conversation pieces.
This piece is hanging in the dining room. I love the rich texture it brings to the space. We’re planning to go with a rustic modern vibe–reclaimed wood furniture, neutral walls and subtle patterns in the window treatments and rug.
Here are a few more notables.
If you haven’t started building your art collection yet, my design services can help you get started. Don’t let your walls remain bare any longer.
