THE JEALOUS CURATOR: ART GOES HERE.
hello again! so, let’s get right to it, shall we? i found this dining room on pinterest the other day (via styled by karl), and although it’s lovely and tranquil, i really want to hang some art in there:
like i said, it really is peaceful, so i don’t want to cover everything in art – maybe just one wall – but i just have to add one other thing on the smaller wall before we get started:
ahh, yes – a lovely white framed floor mirror (and stick!) from west elm for that lonely white wall. ok. now, for the art! this is not a traditional dining room by any means, so i’ve decided not to show any traditional art. nope – not one brush stroke or pencil line in the bunch. ready? of course you are!
gasp! thread – literally thousands of strands of thread stretched across the end of the room to create a stunning piece of art that almost glows from within (by american artist anne lindberg). would that not be amazing in there?! oh, and speaking of amazing:
i would love to look at these strange and beautiful gardens while having my dinner! paper cut & pressed flowers, pinned & framed by utrecht based artist anne ten donkelaar. they really are magical, and those vibrant colors would be amazing in this simple space – but, if you really want to keep the white theme going, then by all means, please do!
white. paper. feathers – yes! seattle based artist sharon arnold creates large scale installations using only hand-cut strathmore paper, and pins. this piece, titled “muff” is 5 feet across and would be an amazing addition this lovely, tranquil space. om.
see? i told you – not one bit of traditional art. of course, you could hang anything you want in this room – it’s a like a beautiful blank canvas! ok, i’ll be back in two weeks with more art hung in lovely rooms. see you then ~ the jealous curator xo
