L’art

Sometimes I’m into art as decor. And sometimes I’m really into art as decor. I’m definitely going through the extreme phase right now. I want art on every wall from floor to ceiling. I’ve been able to talk myself out of such an aesthetic in my own house (for now), but I’m only able to do that because I know that I can share all of my obsessions with you. My tastes lean mostly toward the abstract and the linear. But I could be convinced to to try something different if it were the right something different. For now, let me just show you some things I know I love.

The Best Coffee Table Books

I’m a major photography enthusiast. Wait–that sounds like I know the names of very talented and influential photographers. I don’t. What I mean is I love to look at beautiful and interesting photos (and sometimes try to create my own!). Thus my love for the coffee table book. There is no easier way to turn a bland surface into a sophisticated display or an empty corner into a riveting accent.
