No great home is truly complete without art.
Whether it’s a dramatic Pop Art print, mixed media on canvas, or a framed photograph, art in a home reveals much about its inhabitants and their style. While there is no shortage of good sources for purchasing original artworks, it takes a seasoned design team to help select the right pieces for your space.
Sesshu Design Associates worked hand in hand with Costello Childs Gallery and Horizon Art to select pieces for four spaces in the Paradise Valley Designer Showhouse.
Luxurious linens from The Linen Tree in cream, ivory, and soft taupe bring together the trio of hues that harmonize beautifully throughout the rest of this spacious bedroom in the Paradise Valley Showhouse. The bed from Town Studio is upholstered in cream-colored fabric with sleek, high-gloss night stands. Framed paintings above the bed and its foot, lends interest and emphasizes the soft blues throughout the space adding a touch of playfulness.
The same levity found itself in the adjoining office infused with shades of purple in the art as well as in the textural silk rug anchoring the aproned contemporary desk from Alexander Sinclair.
The private areas of the home centered around a central gallery wherein the design team elected to best showcase the space as a private art gallery with deliciously thick wool rug underfoot.
My passion for design began early in life. I built houses in Legos, Lincoln logs and forts outside from scrap wood. I loved to rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and the living room or anywhere else my mom would let me. Space planning and what works and what doesn’t became second nature to me through simple trial and error.
When I turned 12, my Christmas gift was redecorating my bedroom with new bedding, window treatments, fresh wall colors and new flooring. I was in heaven! As soon as I took the interior design class my high school offered, I knew exactly what I was going to do.” ~ Tanya Shively, ASID, LEED AP
