Art, and how to display it

My favourite art medium is photography. One of my biggest pet peeves is how photography framed behind glass only seems to show really awful glares if there is a window in the room. The worst is trying to photograph this. Plus, framing costs a fortune. The photograph above is fantastic, and the simple way in which it is hung, without a frame and possibly laminated, is a great solution. I have a photo of my Himalayan fluffball Milo that I want to blow up and laminate (on a thin backing) like this, and I'm even more sure now that this is the way to go.

The perfect corner

This is the perfect corner. Rustic and chic. From the Brookyln home of Aya Yamanouchi-Lloyd - as seen here via Homelife.

Vignettes

Elle Interiör

I am obsessed with vignettes. I could spend my days making vignettes all over my house. And then the next day, I would take them all apart and start over. I get such a sense of satisfaction when I finish one that just works. Most of you would know what I am talking about. :) I thought I would end the week with a vignette roundup. These, whether minimal or piled with goodies, WORK. Vignettes baby!

Some rearranging and a new rug

When I painted my living room last month I had decided to fill the shelves at the back of the room with plants. I quickly realized what a dumb idea that was given the lack of decent sunlight. So the other day I grabbed all of the knick-knacks (and some others) I had previously displayed on my mantel and swapped them with the plants. I then piled the plants on the bench I had in front of the window. I am much happier with this arrangement and so seem my plants (except one but I don't want to talk about it - it was my favourite). 

Most of these items were picked up on antiquing travels. Air plant holder = na coille Studio. Phrenology bust = Urban Barn. Nun dolls & vintage camera = High Jinx. Ceramic bug = Wunderkammer
