536ge

Hola! Hope you all had a great weekend! Let's dive right in shall we? I get A LOT of questions about this. How to hang art. How to arrange it. How to style it. I'm sure I'm going to do something that's officially or technically wrong here... but I always get asked the same questions: Should I do one big piece? Two small ones? Three? A gallery wall?

These are in my opinion, the easiest ways to hang your art … [Read more...]

Looks like heaven. And I'm all about those Roly Poly chairs up top. Need them in my life. Photographed by Heidi Lerkendeldt. Hope you have a great weekend! Heaven. … [Read more...]

DESIGN | Layers upon Layers.

Interior Images of an apartment

I'm a little bit in love with the home of William Mclure, a southern designer and painter. First of all, its very traditional, which now seems fresh compared to all the Scandinavian simplicity we've been seeing, second, its really well appointed, and third it looks like a really great place to live.

A lot of the big abstracts are Williams own paintings... … [Read more...]

Versailles was built ten miles out of Paris by Louis the XIII as a hunting lodge. Louis the XIV, The Sun King, changed it into a glorious Chateau, making it the head of the government and his primary residence. It's literally one of the most glorious things I've ever seen.

It's a phenomenal place to visit, … [Read more...]
