Office Do Over: Photography Art

by Sarah on February 20, 2013, 2 comments

Two+ years ago I was looking at maybe Vogue Living Australia or House & Home and I saw this framed image leaning against a window sill,

twiggy

I tore the image out and have had it in my inspiration binder. And then recently I stumbled upon the image on Pinterest and now I know that its Twiggy.

I liked the expression on the woman’s face, the sort of emptiness/boredom and lack of expression combined with the pop of the glasses and orange color. This image of Twiggy inspired me to purchase Valerie Chiang’s print which now hangs in my office. I’ve mentioned/posted about this print before but I finally put the two images together.

I’m thinking side by side photographs is just the right thing for over my bed.

Now I’m a bit embarrassed to show you this because I need a new everything here…but this is the spot. You’re thinking yeah that room needs something and its not just art–that’s what I’d be mumbling to my computer screen right now if I was you.

This is what got me on the right track,

I was reminded of the pair over the Ruffalo’s bed in Domino,

and then my mind quickly shifted to these prints,

Some recent observations when cruising around the internet looking at art-

So Nathan Turner has these great large scale photographic prints of flowers both in his condo and in his shop.

And I’m thinking this magenta Peony photograph from Jennifer Squires has a similar effect and will get the job done. How about this hung on a dark navy or gray wall or mixed with aqua and turquoise blue? Could be pretty great.

And for yo’ information Jennifer offers these sizes too-

$150 | 11×14 inches (28 cm x 36 cm)
$340 | 16×20 inches (40 cm x 50 cm)
$450 | 20×24 inches (50 cm x 60 cm)
$630 | 24×30 inches (60 cm x 75 cm)

Steven Gambrel always seems to feature a great landscape somewhere and this commanding image of clouds over the sea looks pretty damn amazing over that bed.

Aria by artist Halverson Frazier will get you one step closer to getting the look Gambrel created in the bedroom above.

Markham Roberts is another designer who uses great landscapes in his interiors like the photograph of the ocean above the sofa,

This mystic seascape will work some magic over your sofa,

Lontano- As from a distance

Perhaps you like a little less water in your abstract landscapes– for example,

or one of my favorites the abstract landscape in the dining room at Alexandra Pavoncelli’s Long Island home,

if you like those then you’ll like this,

and she has several more that you will love equally.
