hello again! today i bring you a pink wall, and a stunning gold panel at casa barragán in mexico city – the former home of mexican architect luis barragán:

this space is almost perfect, but i just want to pop in and add one more little golden touch to this gorgeous alcove:

oh. the amazing portraits (mixed media on wood panel) by german artist tilo uischner. i love that the wood compliments the desk & chair, and i really love the idea of mimicking the square of the golden panel. i would hang just one of these pieces perfectly centered on that lower wall – but how on earth would i ever choose?! uh oh. and now i’m going to make things even more difficult for myself:

gah! the latest work from canadian artist ben skinner. 24k gold leaf and black enamel, on glass mounted to mdf. that slinky. those elastic bands. or maybe that tape measurer as an ode to the architect who lived here. i don’t know – i love them alllllll! again, i only want one piece in that space so i’m kinda breaking my own heart. why would i do that to myself? and why on earth would i do it 3 times?! yep, here i go again:

blurry, vintage, saturated portraits by american artist nathan ritterpusch. all of these are from a series titled “old enough to be my mother”, but i would definitely choose the top most painting for this space – or the bottom most painting – or one of those other two. geesh. ~ danielle (aka the jealous curator)

  1. Tilo…
    I think the space warrants a thought, a feeling.
    But….I would have a piece that was exactly the same size as the gold one at the top of the stairs.
    Curious.
