Things We Love: Contemporary Art

pinterest
We think one of the most fun things about design is how tastes and styles can evolve over time.
Mikhail Dantes Design
While only a few years ago we would have considered ourselves staunch traditionalists, our tastes have morphed to be much more eclectic.
Ashley Goforth Design
And thank goodness!

These days, we find ourselves more and more drawn to contemporary art. 
Veere Grennery Design
While, previously, we would have put it in the box with strictly modern design, which we appreciated and thought we might want to implement “someday,” now we think contemporary art fits in with pretty much any design scheme.

An antique table and bamboo chairs…

Or a dainty, tailored pleated skirt both pair well with an unexpected pop of art less ordinary.
Lynn Morgan Design
Instead of trying to pick art that “goes” in a room now, we’re trying to be a hair more adventurous and follow that time-tested rule that is so, so important.

Find a piece you love and worry about a place for it later!

Because, after all, when it comes to the spaces where we live, work and play, isn’t being surrounded by things we love what it’s all about?

Things We Love: Paneled Ceilings

Anne Decker Architect
A few days ago, Mom and I were pondering a plain cathedral ceiling. The height was great, and we knew a statement light fixture would spruce the space. But that would only get us so far.

House of Turquoise
After a few minutes of deliberation, we decided that paneling was a must! 
Catalano Architects
We adore the charm of paneling and how instantly it transforms a wall, especially that pesky, overlooked fifth one.
Jane Churchill Design
This kitchen is undeniably adorable. The splash of pink is so sweet, but it’s the ceiling that really caps it off for us.

Especially in a room that is paneled from floor to ceiling, we like the warmth of keeping the ceiling dark.
Roughan Interior Design
We are having a little kitchen envy. The copper vent hood, those gorgeous tiled wall. We think we might cook more in this room… Or at least make more tea.

Whenever we get in the mood that a totally white room will be boring, a picture like this brings us back to our senses.
Erin Martin Design
We generally think of painted paneling for beach homes, cottages and other casual spaces. This is a great reminder that it works in a more sophisticated spot as well.
Life of Polarn Per
We adore these floors! So gorgeous!

Could this room have any more character? A place for sleeping, eating, chatting and storing all our books… We think we could live right here. Who needs a kitchen anyway?

Everything Fabulous
A perfect way to end the post! Painted paneling, a chandelier, a white hide… these are a few of our favorite things 🙂
