RECOMMENDED BY THE EDITORS OF HOUSE DESIGN:
Photographs are a gold mine of inspiration, so you should be strategic about the kind of art you choose and where you display it.
You can practically hear the sound of the typewriter that John Lennon is diligently working at in this portrait. The texture of the stucco walls, which are common in Beverly Hills homes like this one, and the wood floors and table invite us in. The small mess of a coffee mug, notebooks, and loose papers create a realistic vignette for us that we can all relate to.
The creative type, like writers, musicians, and artists, might find this portrait motivating to their own craft, making their studio, office, or workspace the perfect place for it.
