It’s fun to peek into the homes of those who do clever things with their décor. I particularly like seeing the way art and vintage treasures are displayed. Interiors are difficult to photograph well. I'm glad these artists persevered. Even with today's technology, it's not easy to capture in a camera the view that we see with our eyes. From when I was very young, at particular times, I've pretended that my eyes were a camera. I've taken the shots and stored them. It's not difficult to access them myself. But it's tough to convey the vision to others. Maybe I need to practise painting word pictures...

Are there still people who actually
do clever things with their spaces ??!

The concept seems a distant dream ...
perhaps your beautiful post will inspire me.

Oh these are amazing. I LOVE seeing how other people decorate and what art they choose. It's always so inspiring and makes me want to strive more in creative ways.
Great choices of interiors and I agree, it can be hard to capture through a lense, but these turned out great, I can actually picture being there.

That journal has my name on it - or at least it should. What a hoot. And I love the coloured silhouettes.

very inspiring! believe it or not amidst the chaos that is my life we are in the process of redoing two rooms in our house including dedicating one room as a jewelry/art studio. thank you my sweet friend for sharing and lending your kind support - I feel the love!

Hey Harriet said...

These are all such inspiring creative spaces. As much as I enjoyed looking at them, I was also a little disheartened when comparing them to my much less exciting space... Time for a major spruce-up I think!

Vicki said...

those interiors are gorgeous Chrissy. Love the piano, it just inspires you to make beautiful music. I am so touched that you have featured my Journal. Your Blog is one of my favourites. I even nominated you in a top 20 blogs comp (hope you win). Heading off to Blog/Brag this post now. x Vicki

Hi Chrisy! Thanks for sharing all these magical art spaces! I would love to have an inspiring stairway like that too. Hope you are enjoying your print! Have a beautiful weekend! :)

Jessica Cangiano said...

Ooohhh, how very fun! I'm the first to admit that I love peering into the inner sanctuaries of deeply creative souls, they always leave with new ideas about how I wish my own home decor looked.


Wishing you a magically marvelous Sunday, dear heart!
