Julie and Andrew's home is a fascinating study in curating. It is especially intriguing how they display either discarded objects, or every day objects as art. Things that are beautiful, but might normally be overlooked. Julie and Andrew invite you to take a second look at ordinary objects and to rethink what is aesthetically pleasing.
And speaking of repitition, OMG just look at this image from Ted Allen and Barry Rice's home featured in Elle Decor.
Here is proof of the impact of multiple simple objects. A display of moon lamps, be still my heart! Allen and Rice create a wonderful display, still achieving a simple, uncluttered look by sticking to a theme. I love the way they have displayed these lamps McElheney fashion and make a wall of light. I'm sure this must be stunning lit up, and may steal is idea.
This image is from the October 2007 Metropolitan Home. The home is designed by Betty Wasserman and is done beautifully and with soft restraint. I could live in this home. The objects that are displayed throughout the house are sculptural glass and ceramic vases and bowls, lending a minimal feel to the decor. I absolutely adore the recessed wall display in this image. The vases in those recesses make a stunning, but unobtrusive presence in the room.
Do you have an interesting way of displaying the objects that you love? Send me an email, I'd be happy to hear about it, and maybe I'll post your display here.
