Here is a glimpse into the main floor art collection of Lisa Diamond, Art Interiors co-founder. Lisa shares her philosophies on collecting, the challenges of moving your art collection to a new home, and what she is currently collecting.
In honour of our 21st annual Festival of Smalls, we present here a collection of small work in the context of our own homes, and those of our clients and friends. Join us this Saturday at 10am for the opening reception!
We are always telling clients that moving around artwork in their homes is a great way to breath new life into their collection. This holiday season, I decided to practice what I preach. As a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations made their way into our main space, my roommate and I decided to do some rearranging to make it all work together.
Since working at Art Interiors, I have marked almost every significant occasion in my life through the acquisition of a new work of art. My most prized pieces I make sure to hang where I can see and enjoy them most often. Here is a glimpse at the works I wake up to every morning.
I love to collect many things. I love colour and lots of quirky figurines, dolls, boxes, etc.. wherever I can get it. Grouping little vignettes is something I've done all of my life. Even when I was a little girl in my room, I'd set up little scenes involving various objects and my dolls. I'd enjoy the little stories I'd create, and then change them at my whim.
