Why Don’t You…?

… go diagonal?

After spotting this image on Decoratrix, I knew exactly what’s been missing in my art gallery inspiration files. We’ve seen random arrangements, tiled grids, even the floor-to-ceiling approach. But a diagonal, staircase-inspired display of artwork? Perfection.

I love how it frames the low credenza and the patterned flooring plays so well with the geometry above. Tell me – would you try it in your own home? Or do you prefer a more traditional display? I’d love to hear!

Why Don’t You…?

… display your craft supplies, loud and proud?

And no, we're not suggesting you take our advice as a license to keep your office endlessly disorganized. Yet a fun, color-filled display idea (and dare we say it… art installation!) could mean a simple trip to your sewing room.

Don't believe us? Check out Douglas Copeland's colorful display of spooled yarn above. With nothing more than your average peg board and a seriously inspired thread stash, you could sport your very own functional art wall.

Go on; we dare you.
