“In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it.” ~ Michelangelo Buonarroti

the art of editing…

chefs, composers, architects, poets, filmmakers, designers, painters…

all who create, edit…it is an integral part of the artistic process…

sometimes it is the silent pause or the blank space that creates a masterpiece

Today’s post features fifteen of my favorite interiors…they are memorable for many reasons but today, they have one common thread…their artful use of photography…in each space, the designer thoughtfully incorporates photography into the environment…some with a bold gesture, (as with the Kara Mann designed dining room above) others with a small gem, that bring you closer for a more intimate look…whether a virtuosic solo or a large symphonic grouping, these interiors lovingly highlight the beauty of photography…

w boston

A one bedroom condominium at the ultra chic W Boston, located at 100 Stuart Street, received a dramatic makeover thanks to interior designer Meichi Peng. By re-imagining the floor plan, she improved the flow of the space while optimizing the gorgeous city views. Her vision for a harmonious environment is so beautifully realized…enjoy!

“Meichi Peng was able to transform a one-bedroom condominium at the W Boston and give it some of her signature style. Some key design elements included reconfiguring a long hallway to make room for a study with floor to ceiling bookcases on one side to create an unobstructed dramatic city view. Other strategic design decisions included moving the dining area next to the unit’s sleek kitchen and painting the backsplash and area surrounding the cabinetry in dark tones, to bring in some richness. The kitchen visually recedes therefore, allowing the focal point to be on the dining area.” ~ Meichi Peng

modern elegance

Yesterday I posted about Boston based interior designer Meichi Peng. Her work is so moving I just had to post more of her breathtaking interiors. Please enjoy this intimate journey…

“As a designer, I am moved by the patina of an ancient artifact and the facade of a contemporary structure because I believe in the fundamental relationship between space, line, materials, color, shape and texture. When balance is achieved between these elements, spaces and objects are created that exude harmony.” ~ Meichi Peng

“The pursuit of harmony is my inspiration.” ~ Meichi Peng

meichi peng

A few days ago, I purchased the current issue of Boston Magazine featuring the “Best of Boston Home 2011.” I love this issue because it highlights the tried and true but also the up and coming who are just making a name for themselves. My favorite from this issue is Boston based interior designer Meichi Peng. Young, talented and expressive, her interiors are a thoughtful study in modern elegance. The images in today’s post are of a model unit she designed for a historic Back Bay building. Quality fabrics and finishes mingle with global treasures creating a warm, calming environment. Notice her attention to detail with the objects on the coffee table below. The light neutral fabrics and dark wood finishes throughout the space are carefully echoed in this artful tablescape ~ a trio of Ted Muehling candlesticks blissfully coexist next to a stunning museum mounted sculpture…simple yet provocative. I also love her use of artwork throughout the space. Hung with an artists eye, it balances the interior with effortless grace. A historic Boston landmark thoughtfully re-imagined for today’s modern lifestyle.

“This project is housed in a converted landmark building on Boston’s Back Bay and South End border. This 1,600 square foot model unit created for the developer was designed with a certain lifestyle in mind for optimal residential marketability. High-end, sophisticated furnishings from Flexform, B&B Italia and Ralph Pucci, among others, combined with custom millwork, draperies, artwork and accessories made for a very well received result.” ~ Meichi Peng
