I just spent a happy day observing dinosaurs, science experiments and kids. Aside from the fantastic architecture of Graham and Gund, art and design weren't really the focus.
But snapping these pictures, I decided I'm content with the latest arrangement: one wall plain except for a large mirror that reflects the very densely covered wall opposite it. (I sort of have no choice but to be content as the other wall is now peppered with holes.)
Amelia Handegan used a beautiful mirror to reflect her wonderful art collection. Roo Way photographed this view for Charleston Magazine, March 2008 (sorry my image is grainy). As mentioned earlier, some of Handegan's collection is from Ann Long Fine Art and it includes Mario Robinson's work.
I think everyone remembers this one. Ruthie Sommers' design photographed by Stewart Shining for domino, April 2008.
Here's another loosely related example from Displaying Pictures, seen in a past post. Whatever the style of interior, art, or even frames, the timeless trick of using a mirror to reflect a rather complex grouping of pictures -- particularly in a small space -- works for me.
Now, back to kids, check out the second installment of Ellen's summer reading crafts. Great links are included.
