Interiors and fine art

Every collector who buys fine art for their collection, whether new or an existing collection, will place the work in an interior setting within the home. Unless you're a museum curator, the setting for a new work of art is usually going to be the home.

I'm constantly fascinated by interior room settings and the way art is displayed. Look out for my postings on Twitter and Instagram as I come across room settings on my travels to fine art fairs, and also as I come across articles online. I love how a room can be transformed by a great work of art. Sometimes a series of small drawings can look fantastic over a sofa and give a timeless effect, adding gravitas and a sense of history. On the other hand, a signature piece by a great artist says enough on its own. Naturally, it depends on the owner's taste, but we can draw inspiration from others.

Frames also bring a work of art to life, and I particularly like either a neutral frame, usually in black, or white, for a contemporary artwork. But for a period piece of art, an antique frame adds another layer of texture to the work.
