Spotted in Today and Tomorrow magazine, the work of Christopher Derek Bruno is something you don’t bump into everyday. His paintings show a different representation of miscellaneous shapes and depending on the angle you are watching them from, come up together as unitary works of art and complex compositions. Basically, it’s all about perspectives and angles. In case you are looking to add some (interesting and distinguished) artistic elements to your contemporary home, Christopher Derek Bruno’s work might be an interesting choice.
The paint is fixed on carefully arranged wood tiles. The artist played with basic shapes, such as rectangles and circles and added strong tones of colour. The artwork collection is simply called “Lenticular Compositions”, tending to manipulate the forms and educate the viewer in the spirit of three dimensional art. His work is really remarkable, giving you the feeling that you are experiencing the world with 3D glasses on your eyes, only without…the glasses. Exploring the boundaries of perspective and giving a different value to it, Christopher Derek Bruno creates sophisticated bold art. Do you like the output?
And who says recessed living areas need to be indoors? Your outdoor space can benefit just as much from sunken seating, as evidenced by this elegant, stone-lined patio by Dean Herald-Rolling Stone Landscapes. And for one final dose of sunken living room eye candy, feast your eyes on this over-the-top living area by Chris Barrett Designs. The former estate of Johnny Carson features giant windows overlooking a cliff in Malibu, so it’s no wonder a safe and plush sunken sofa was added to ground the space.
Let’s get started with some styling inspiration from Urban Outfitters, a brand that offers an interesting array of wall-mounted shelving options. Many of them celebrate the best of geo style. Below we see a trio of shelving solutions, including the Bryn Mountain Display Shelf, pictured at the top right of the photo. Note how each of these shelves holds “like items,“ such as rocks, jewelry and other natural wonders. The styling of this Geo Triangle Shelf proves there’s power in empty space. You may be tempted to fill every square inch of your decorative shelving, but remember that sometimes less is more.
