Transitioning into a new state, across the country to start a new life, can be drastic and un-tethering to say the least. If you love art, you may seek to soften this transition by surrounding yourself with art that uplifts you and reflects the life you are wanting to build.
I met such a collector in my Lafayette gallery in 2022. They were certain which artworks made them feel good and they arranged to have it all installed before they moved. The amount of art in the home, the scale and colors, is breathtaking. It has the power to transform a moment and it also says, “stop and pause here”.
The art in my home is a big part of what makes my home a Home. When visitors come over – if they don’t remark on the art, I am surprised. After all, there is a lot of it! And it reflects us as a family. It’s more than mere decoration. (if you ever visit, you’ve been warned)
And so it is for this collector’s home shown here. The art is unavoidable. It infuses the space with color and emotion and demands attention.
What does the art in your home do? Is it part of the interior design of the home? There is nothing wrong with answering yes. Starting with what you love in a painting or sculpture, can be a great way to begin the interior design of your home. The process of art collecting helps to understand the colors you love or how you want to use the spaces. It defines YOU. And you can always move the art around. And switch the mood of your rooms by curating seasonally. Not comfortable doing your own curation? Hire an art consultant to help.
