All About

If measuring, re-measuring and measuring a third time are not your idea of a fun Sunday afternoon, there's another solution to showing off your favorite pictures.

In the den of her Tribeca apartment, designer Sherri Donghia has displayed her favorite pictures behind the glass doors of a painted Indonesian cabinet. While some of the frames, such as the art deco piece in the lower right corner, have been paired with the same photographs since the pictures were taken, Donghia also likes to use old frames from antiques stores and flea markets.

Because the cabinet is also home to her favorite Venetian drinking glasses, Donghia opens the doors frequently and gets a glimpse of her father who passed away many years ago.

"It's such an important thing to have pictures around," says the author of Donghia: The Artistry of Luxury & Style. "People really want things that are personal and individual, and creating these little vignettes allows you to add something that is special just to you."
