Located in the heart of the Chelsea district in New York City, this 5,000-square-foot duplex loft houses an amazing collection of art. The living room features a 25-foot-high ceiling, props from Broadway shows (the homeowner is a Broadway producer) and choice pieces of the homeowners' art collection. The drawing over the chairs is 12-feet high.
The living room seen here shifts the focus to a large glass coffee table, providing plenty of seating around it. Large-scale artwork adds visual interest and ties the color scheme together in its framing.
Against the wall, a large canvas brings swirls of blue, green and yellow to the dining area. Notice, too, how its different colors complement the kitchen's barstools and so tie the two spaces together.
The eye-catching art over the fireplace adds a pop of vivid purple color to the space. A unique contemporary metal sculpture creates a fireplace cover for an artistic take to the space. Mounted sconces and boxed wood stools create a mirror effect surrounding the fireplace.
This den is as sophisticated as they come, with four contemporary chairs and a round coffee table positioned right in front of the fireplace. A large piece of artwork brings a touch of personality to the space and inspired the color of the rug.
A large piece of artwork upstairs can be appreciated from either the hallway spanning the second floor of this modern home or from the first floor below. Up close, the piece appears to be a collage of books and magazines while at a distance a lady in a cafe appears.
Large scale artwork makes a bold statement from the wall of the formal living room and sets the tone for the graphic patterns seen throughout the space. The white frame helps the design pop off the wall.
Keep your decor in proportion. In this designer model home, everything in the bathroom is grand, from the oversized spa shower and clawfoot tub to the picture window and adjacent wall. When you have a sizeable wall in a prominent spot, fill it with a massive canvas painting or framed artwork. Whether it’s your own original art, an affordable painting from an undiscovered artist at a local arts festival or a piece found at a thrift shop, flea market or home decor store, you can find large artwork for all budgets.
You can still live large in a tiny apartment! A stunning, natural wood coffee table features prominently in this small studio remodel by designer Jarret Yoshida. Soft grays and muted lavenders help carry the relaxed feel through the space, while a large charcoal artwork by artist Josh Bricker evokes organic, floral imagery. Curling up on the sofa with a good book would be a joy in this cozy space.
