Maria Brito and artwork

As I mentioned in my previous post, interior designer Maria Brito is an art aficionado who loves to decorate spaces with bold often photographic statement pieces. Which is why I am now her new biggest fan. 🙂

Art, and how to display it

Posted on Thu, 12 Feb 2015 by KiM

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.

I still have a thing for a gallery wall. You too? Loving this one by Angie Hranowsky. Just enough retrolicious goodness.

Like salted caramel. Luscious and rich. Morish. An adult space layered with texture, carefully strewn with objet d’art, the luxe and somewhat foppish countered by the industrial and abstract nature of the artworks. An elegant, masculine home. Vivienda Santiago Castillo by Madrid-based designer Lorenzo Castillo.

Hold on to your hats folks. Welcome to the wacky and totally eclectic world of Joannes Van Laer and Lucas Schelkens, where colour and glam are always on the menu. Classic antiques mix with faux furs, sparkly chandeliers and wild patterns. These men are VERY brave.
