To me, one of the most important elements of a home -- the thing that really personalizes a place -- is the artwork. Art is so personal and says so much about the people who live with it. I love the idea of surrounding oneself with images that comfort, energize, evoke memories, impart beauty and inspire.
The art collection in this Chicago home, featured on Apartment Therapy, is fantastic. So eclectic, so interesting. It makes me think the homeowners must be pretty spectacular, too.
