Is a gallery wall the best way to display an art collection? Art lovers and collectors find gallery walls perfect for displaying their favorite pieces. […]

It’s time for another Stylish Traveler interview – and I’m excited. To celebrate #FollowFriday, I’ll be posting occasional Friday Q&A’s with bloggers, artists, interior designers or other creative types. This time, I’m interviewing gallery owner Gillian Bryce of Gillian Bryce Fine Art. My friend Kellie and I met Gillian a few years back in Atlanta. Immediately, we knew she was […]
Oversized art makes a statement! I like big art and I cannot lie! Que Sir Mix-A-Lot. Nothing personalizes a space quite like beautiful, original works of art – especially if the scale is large. Take a look at these oversized pieces that really pack a punch. Bigger is better right?
Do you start to notice themes when you look over your travel photos? I have a huge collection of “portraits” of statues. Even through the lens, I realize that I love to shoot sculpture in the same way that I like to take photos of models. Sometimes I even feel myself having an internal discussion with […]

You can’t always read a smile. In this picture, I’m smiling – but why? Well, the truth is, in this photo, I’ve been caught in the act… I was lucky enough to be a guest, a few years ago, at a reception in the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy. (If you know your […]
For some reason, I woke up this morning thinking about The Shoe Room – a unique hotel room I once booked in Valence, France. The room was in a boutique hotel called Maison de la Pra, a small bed and breakfast in a fairly small town, and frankly, we were not expecting a lot of […]
