HOW TO DISPLAY ART

Words by Homes & Gardens

A tryptich has a certain compositional power, says interior designer Sophie Ashby, who commissioned this series of sliding Aboriginal paintings for a modern apartment to hide the television. The paintings, which are as large a scale as she felt the room would accommodate, are mirrored by subtly ethnic textiles and similar undulating lines in the two-tone rug. ‘The scale of a piece of art has a big impact on its overall effect. Be brave and go as big as a room can take, but bear in mind that modern homes tend to have smaller proportions than, say, a Georgian house.
