The Guide You Can Own: Ionian Painting


IN DESIGN worldwide, almost no crime does more than a “matching match” room. That is why there are decorations, in an attempt to free their clients from this non-consumptive faux pass, a barrister against picking artwork that co-ordinates his surroundings. A tasteless person, who will ever choose this, says that he would choose, for example, a seascape that is friendly and mostly blue for a room that is already full of coastline.

It can not be true that inverse of this rule is true: the results of art can be chosen and room to create around it to achieve successful results, especially if the painting or print is rather complicated. “It's much better when the art comes first,” said Elizabeth Pyne, interior illustrator at McMillen Inc.. in Manhattan. “It provides a launch point for brainstorming and parameters to work within.”

Another advantage of the eggs approach before the chicken? Foresight gift. “When you start with one piece as a reference, it allows you to create a dialogue between everything else in the room,” said Brian Murphy, an interior decorator in New York City. Of course, there is a dose and no. “It's really inspiring inspiration from the colors in painting and sometimes the mood,” said Dallas designer Michelle Nussbaumer. It is likely that an over-faithful interpretation – using, for example, “Untitled (Yellow Red and Blue) Mark Rothko” as a catalyst for uncomfortable yellow, red and blue – will put you on the above. Nussbaumer was warned, “The letter of death is the letter translation.” Here, five examples of reverse engineering were made.

Basquiat weaving

After renovating their Manhattan apartments, Brian Murphy's client tried to consolidate a piece of statements to secure the adjoining food / living space. Enter this 1981 work by the late Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was purchased at auction. The Egyptian revival bronze lamps focus on painting – “the scale, strength and simplicity went with the Basquiat,” said Mr Murphy. In keeping with the eclectic taste of the owners, 18th-century French Regency red velvet dining chairs were painted with a French glass top table in the 1940s. (“We didn't want a big heavy table that would compete.”) An Italian turquoise spiral vase adds, “an unexpected color pop that is not in the painting but plays energy from it.” T

Far East forms – in Texas

For a 25 year old homeowner, the first time, a full white canvas was a house in the 1940s in Dallas. When she fell on this pair of 19th century senior portraits, they set out the course for a bold, lively living room. Her interior designer, Michelle Nussbaumer, went into an Asian theme with a chinoiserie lamp table – transferred from urn-cap throw-tiger-manchurian print and Chiang Mai drawer wall Schumacher in the next room. “The references were exotic and impressive,” said Ms. Nussbaumer. To avoid any one note, the décor was not equal to European sofa and chairs and a custom acrylic coffee table with

Allan Knight.

As a result, there was a riot of colors and patterns. “It's an enjoyable, sophisticated mix that doesn't feel formal,” said Ms. Nussbaumer.

Portrait of Our Lady makes an entrance

He wanted to have the family of an Italian / Prairie residence in the suburb of Lough Forest in Chicago – an early 19th century portrait of the husband's great grandmother – to set the tone for the front entrance. To highlight his rich palette of colors, the interior designer of Athalie Derse of Charleston, SC, gray green, supported the walls, and then set aside the original gilt frame with Continental Gesso from the 1920s as if it were say, “Hey, please note this Because the old-age clients were keen to blend with a new, 1810 French walnut conductor was acquired in geometric“ Fern Tree ”fabric from Schumacher, designed by Kelly Wearstler. “He added a younger edge,” said Ms. Derse. “We are respecting history, but also modernizing.” T

Cartographic Data

Designer Elizabeth Pyne's clients wanted this circa-1855 map of New York City to give the dining area. The challenge: to find the vintage display and the modern aesthetic in the rest of the Avenue Avenue apartment being achieved. The solution: Create a library context with a twist from the 21st century. “We ignored the rust rusty colors of the rust and the men's vegetables and highlighted their colored steel sky by painting the wall and painting a dark shower,” said Mr Pyne. Leather dining chairs add imitation oomphier, and their Klismos shape almost excludes the elliptical view of the map. The Sunburst light fixture with the roots of the 1960s, through Lighting Extensions, old and new bridges. Of the solar joke, Mr Pyne explained, “The city is at the heart of the universe in today and in 1855.
