House Beautiful Art: Decorating with Art at Home
Sterling Publishing Company Incorporated, Mar 1, 2004 - Design - 176 pages
A sumptuous tour of houses, apartments and lofts [with] striking and imaginative ideas for novice and expert alike.”—Home Style
Whether you want to make artwork an integral part of your design, effectively showcase collections, or turn the walls themselves into canvases, you’ll never find a more exquisite guide than this. Every awe-inspiring interior showcases a different magnificent approach and style: they range from tables and floors stacked with sculpture to larger than life paintings to antique furniture and fabrics. A beautiful fifteenth century Milanese palazzo blends real foliage with an imaginary trompe l’oeil overgrowth. In a more playful mode, architect Steve Ehlich transforms a whimsical assortment of 1950s lunchboxes into a veritable work of art. Each image is eye-opening and inspirational.
