2. I have always been a collector of porcelain deer and horse figurines and was delighted to find that my obsession is shared with Shauna & Stephen of Something’s Hiding in Here. I paired the little animals with modern Polaroid artwork to create a woodland corner in the kitchen.
3. This robin’s egg blue sewing machine was my first foray into fiber arts as a preteen. My current business is centered around Do-It-Yourself crafts as modern art, and I proudly display my first piece of crafting equipment in my living room, as a homage to my chosen profession, and the journey I took to get there. The blue pops within the white background, and creates a magnificent conversation piece.
4. Like most interior designers, I would avoid displaying a stuffed animal in an adult’s room, but this cluster of bedroom art pieces includes a framed photograph of my childhood best friend, Snoopy the little beige dog. The contrast between a brocade black and white frame, combined with a grouping of other eclectic art pieces brings a childhood nostalgia into every day life, without having to drag out boxes of toys or displaying the actual item.
5. Although I did not photograph this room, it illustrates perfectly the elegant design of a childhood favorite. By placing children’s book illustrations in streamlined frames, graphically framed, a kid’s story becomes an example of modern, expressionist art.
