Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
How can one integrate art, whether a few pieces or a large collection, into one's home and life? In House Beautiful Art: Decorating with Art at Home, design historian Judith Gura and the editors of House Beautiful showcase the many ways in which such decorative bliss can be accomplished, using scale and balance to produce harmonious environments. Whether the setting is a 17th-century Dutch castle, a small cottage in Connecticut or a stark modern manse in Arizona, amazing combinations of old and new, classic and modern, sentimental mementos and priceless objects can all contribute to a satisfying environment which surprises and excites. Two hundred superb color photographs show off the ideas and collections and inspire creative new approaches to those beloved treasures relegated to a shelf or packed away. (Nov.)

Library Journal
Using a multitude of color photographs, this book shows how various interior designers have arranged space so that art collectors can give their collections "pride of place and make art an integral part of the design, permeating the very life of the house." The highlighted collections include sculpture, painting, ceramics, furniture, and folk art in various design styles, from classical to modern to whimsical. Successfully depicting how to showcase art in the home, this book will be especially appreciated in large and academic collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
