“A sumptuous tour of houses, apartments and lofts throughout the U.S. and Europe, showing the myriad methods of arranging and displaying art in residential settings. Well-illustrated by 175 color photographs Striking and imaginative ideas for novice and expert alike.”—Home Style. “A multiple of color photographs... shows how various interior designers have arranged space so that art collectors can give their collections ‘pride of place.’ Successfully depicting how to showcase art in the home, this book will be especially appreciated.”—Library Journal.

Whether you want to make artwork an integral part of your design, effectively showcase a beloved collection, or turn the walls themselves into canvases, you'll never find a more exquisite guide than this. Every awe-inspiring interior showcases a different magnificent approach and style for you to consider, including tables and floors stacked with sculpture, larger-than-life paintings, and antique furniture and fabrics. A beautiful fifteenth-century Milanese palazzo blends real foliage with an imaginary trompe l'oeil overgrowth; in the dining room restored frescoes flank a massive Louis XV fireplace. In a more playful mode, architect Steve Ehlich transforms a whimsical assortment of 1950s lunch boxes into a veritable work of art. Each image is eye opening and inspirational.
