"Size Matters . . . "
Just sitting here in the office - and mentally placing artwork for several projects - making notes, drawing sketches, filling in some holes . . . but, loving the fact that we're working with several major pieces in each different project. Major - not only in style - but also in size!
I love the drama of a massive piece of artwork anchoring any space. It's the perfect way to add impact to any room. Whether a giant work of modern photography, or vintage french advertisement, or a fine oil painting. Maybe it's just a great poster - but oversized - and beautifully framed. And I truly believe - the smaller the room, the more drama you can create with one giant work of art.
Michael Smith, who can almost do no wrong, reinforces the warm colour story, and highlights the massive room with this beautiful painting.
Jamie Drake goes contemporary and graphic in his own home.
He told the story that he had practically finished the room - and THEN found the artwork - which fits SO perfectly, it seemed as if it were the inspiration for the entire space.
The work of Jamie Drake again. I adore the exuberance of his fearless style! And I love the play of pattern between the linear motifs on the table covering - and the great almost formless curvature of the modern artwork.
One of my favourite sayings - "Go big, or go home."
or maybe "Go big, and stay home and admire your boldness!"
