Art Class

While Browsing Meade Design Group Blog, which I do often, I decided to explore the work of this exceptionally talented designer, Brad Ford. There were a number of wonderful properties to explore in his portfolio, but this one really resonated with me. The artwork and interior compliment each other in a very easy and relaxed environment. A beautiful Scandinavian influence, that is modern and sophisticated, and completely functional.
.

How beautifully this red artwork and bowl compliment each other, it's as if they are part of the same body of art.
The sofa above, appears to have begun as a bitter dispute between husband and wife. "White Slipcovers!!" "Smoking chair Leather!!". If only all disputes could be resolved with such harmony. I wish I had more information about the artwork to share with you- what a magnificent green textured piece hanging behind sofa.

Industrial kitchens make me feel like a chef. Great pendant lighting, large work surface (not sure if that is slate or concrete) professional oven, and white subway tile make an inviting space for family and guests to gather.

Inspirational Mirrored message board in the office. When you get tired of sitting at a desk and staring at your monitor, a fabulous lounge invites you to sit back and read notes, magazines and books.

Brad Ford also writes a blog called Design Therapy.
