Counter Whether you want to make artwork an integral part of your design, effectively showcase a beloved collection, or turn the walls themselves into canvases, you'll never find a more exquisite guide than this. Every awe-inspiring interior showcases a different magnificent approach and style for you to consider: they range from tables and floors stacked with sculpture to larger than life paintings to antique furniture and fabrics. A beautiful fifteenth century Milanese palazzo blends real foliage with an imaginary trompe l'oeil overgrowth in the dining room restored frescoes flank a massive Louis XV fireplace. In a more playful mode, architect Steve Ehlich transforms a whimsical assortment of 1950's lunchboxes into a veritable work of art. Each image is eye opening and inspirational.
