Today- an eclectic mix of art and interiors to inspire you.



Lush Lilac: Relaxed, rustic textures (a natural-fiber rug, distressed wood), gorgeous gilding (an antique mirror), and classic patterns (ticking-stripe wallpaper), a purple patterned chair becomes an integral part of a stylish whole.

"When you put art on the wall and it becomes definitive, you stop looking at it. 

I like things to move around and let them yell at me."
