Be Bold--5 Unexpected Places to Display Art
Most people incorporate art into their homes in the usual places: a painting or print on the fireplace mantel or perhaps above the couch. I've done that too. What takes these interior spaces to a new, interesting level is incorporating art into places you wouldn't necessarily expect to find.
Let's make art the first thing and last thing you see when you enter a home. If a hotel foyer can have great art, why can't your entry? Love this bold striated painting (above) in friendly pinks and lavendars that really enhance the views of the greenery inside and out (home of singer John Legend).
In this example above, actress Jessica Chastain enjoys her bubble baths in this spectacular copper tub, while gazing at original art by mid-century French artist Jacques Nestle above. Love this old world + modern mix.
The walls in a cool loft-style residence like this beg for large-scale art. In this more Danish Modern pad, a frameless canvas provides a kind of "window" of a view (besides those bikes in their happy colors).
Why limit art to just walls? The wardrobe in this home is covered with the homeowner's collection of Japanese prints.
Finally art doesn't have to be limited to any kind of traditional frame and boundary dictated by the dimensions of a canvas. This is a fantastic bedroom space that I imagine even the lengendary artist Matisse would've approved of!
