Art Lover's Home Tour

Designer Mary Anne Smiley incorporates saturated shades into bright, sun-filled spaces to highlight this homeowner's collection of fine art.

Neutral, But Far From Boring

Two curvy settees replace the traditional sofa seating in this sunny living room. Bright colors and bold patterns fill the space, complementing the owner's art collection. 

Artistic Touches

Each fixture, from the Calder-inspired stained glass chandelier to the sculptural coffee table, lends a uniquely artistic vibe to the space. 

Saturated Shades

Bold splashes of red and purple pop against the room's otherwise neutral color palette. 

Colorful + Creative

The bold color continues into the fireplace where cobalt blue fire glass takes the place of standard gas logs.

Traditional Meets Modern

The colors are more subdued in the dining room where an abstract floral pattern in the wallpaper is offset by bright yellow forsythia branches. The sculptural dining table carries the home's artistic feel into the space.
