Thank you ever-so-graciously, Things that Inspire, for including our home's hallway in your post today featuring the latest from Quatrefoil Design.
Inspiration is a great thing, which is why I love reading blogs. And when resources are provided, that is the icing on the cake. When I see a photo of a fabric or chair I admire, my next reaction is "where can I get it?"
With Things that Inspire sharing her passions that include offering classic designs as wall art via Quatrefoil Design is a great thing. The variations of frames, sizes and intaglios are what I found so appealing about their site.
If you are an admirer of intaglios, here are some of my favorite displays for inspiration:
From Virginia-based designer, Barry Dixon, his portfolio from a residence in Bethesda, Maryland includes a quaint display of intaglios. A vignette I've long admired. The combination of cream-colored intaglios with a brown background and gold frames give it such a warm feel.
Let me add that his design book, Barry Dixon Interiors is filled with incredible photos showcasing his projects over the years. I refer to it over and over again, simply for the inspiration and enjoyment I receive taking-in all of Mr. Dixon's great work.
With intaglios, I like to see different types of groupings of artwork displayed, which I find so pleasing to my eyes. This is a great example by Suzanne Kasler. It looks as though the intaglios are outlined in a dark color. This vignette is one of my favorites in her book, Inspired Interiors.
It's hard to see closely in the photo but it appears that the frames have a design element I am drawn to, and that is the 'x' embossed around the perimeter of the frame. It is one of my very favorites.
I am very excited to have discovered Quatrefoil Design and very much look forward to building onto my collection of Joni's.
And so the quest for the ideal nest continues!
