The Artful Home
Using Art & Craft to Create Living Spaces You'll LoveBook - 2007
A spectacular ceramic vase, an elegant blown glass light fixture, a hand-forged metal chair: well-chosen art and craftwork turn a house into a home, reflecting the owner's personality. Create a warm and expressive environment by thinking like an artist and envisioning your home as a canvas for displaying beautiful things. Written by Toni Sikes, Founder and CEO of The Guild, Inc.--a leading name in fine art and crafts--this image-packed guide offers practical information on finding, showcasing, and caring for original art. Sikes gives a room by room tour, revealing the potential in every space and showing how to transform hallways into galleries; build a room around a special piece; use color, composition, and texture like a painter; and design vignettes that enhance collections.
