Vignettes

Art Gallery Inspiration

Finding inspiration for a specific project can take up tons of time, especially as it’s easy to get sucked into the vortex of Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. I recently have been rethinking hanging some existing art in a new random way, and just in case you were too, here are some of the images I’ve bookmarked as favorites. (Most of the images we’ve bookmarked via Tumblr have unlisted sources, which is a shame, but luckily some are linked correctly. If you know more info, please comment and/or email us and we’ll add it in.)

Anita Calero’s Loft

I’ve been seeing some of these shots around on other blogs and it reminded me of the story I initially saw on LoftLife. Often I veer towards a minimal aesthetic, where I’ll pack away all the knicknacks and thingamajigs I’ve acquired over the years, only to run across photos like these which remind me of how nice a home is when it tells a story. I mean that in a ‘collect-stuff-that-you-love’ sort of way, not in an ‘I-hired-a-designer’ sort of way, does that make sense? I think sometimes it’s hard to tell in interiors magazines which way that pendulum swings, but in the case of Anita Calero’s loft, it just seems obvious that it’s all her. Her stuff, her likes, her collections. (Watch someone tell me she hired a designer.)

That’s enough of my rambling. Click ‘Read More’ for more photos (and a little more rambling).

Inspiration: Workspace Vignettes

Often I’m tempted to fill my all walls with art and photos jammed all together, but these two smaller workspace shots that I ran across yesterday remind me that sometimes simple editing and a little breathing room can make much more of an impact.
