art comes in every form, but probably its most tradition form, at least in western culture, is painting.
above are some of my absolute favorite examples of art (a few are photographs, not paintings) being used with purpose and beauty in a space.
so i ask, which of the above images do you love?


  1. tough to decide which i like the most.... i think its a comibination of the art pieces from a few...and furniture from a few...i'd mix it up!

  2. So many gorgeous paintings!
    Loving the dancers in particular!
