art and decorative accents

now that the bulk of the work in the house is done it is time to decorate and place the art. The fun part! I am considering placing a mirrored plinth on the staircase landing to host this Tracy Sarroff scuplture I am also thinking of purchasing. A lot of “thinking” going on, I don’t actually know if it will translate to “buying” at this stage, but let’s see.

The other idea I have right now is to have an acrylic box made to display my beautiful Alaia wedding shoes in my dressing room. I doubt I will ever wear them again yet they are so beautiful they deserve to be seen and loved. I got the idea from Kit Kemp’s gorgeous book ‘A Living Space’ (bad iPhone photo version below), and the talented Ryan from United Measures is the go-to guy to actually get the acrylic case made.
