Great art can transform your home from “nicely decorated” to a mindful space. With Brooklyn as arguably one of the world’s creative epicenters – look no further than our own extended backyard for cutting edge art (and music!) to fill your home. I love collaborating with artists when I stage a property for sale! Showcasing art in a home – in contrast to a gallery – helps visualize how the piece might feel in a more personal space, and even allows the art itself to take on a different life and energy.
My interior styling for our listing at 939 Union Street in Park Slope features works by Brooklyn-based artist Benjamin Heller from his recent photographic exhibition Echo and Convergence at the Robin Rice Gallery in the West Village.
Since meeting through a mutual dancer friend, it has been a joy getting to know Benjamin and glimpsing into his studio and thoughts behind his work. His photographs feel bewitchingly theatrical but not staged, and both intimate and hugely powerful – where each image provokes the imagination into uninhibited story-telling and inward reflection for all ages. So up your art game today and support the arts by seeking out new artists to follow, purchase art and music that expands your mind, and visit open studios and live performances!
