Curated Spaces

First Published 18 December 2015

Expanding on the traditional ‘decorator interiors’ Christie’s and Sotheby’s hosted influential bloggers and top designers in there exhibition spaces this fall, asking them to compose interiors using objects in their design sales mixed with Modern and Contemporary artwork.

The results are truly inspiring!
It made us think back to the powerful and provocative exhibition curated by Murray Moss at Phillips de Pury entitled “Dialogues between Art & Design”  a few years ago and the video series accompanying it in which he talks about  experiencing objects, the myth of  ‘good taste’ and other inspiring perspectives on design.

Interiors are always personal and they reflect our values and aspirations as much as our aesthetic.

They also influence our behavior and outlook.

That is why it is important to make informed choices about the objects in our lives.

We hope you enjoy these various interiors and feel inspired to create an interior in 2016 that reflects your best self!

Here are some of the inspiring results:

In a series of video interviews, Moss shares his unique perspectives on decor, “good” taste, and how one lives with art and design.

He speaks divinely!! Enjoy!
