“There is a certain urgency to have it all done at once, but the best places come together over time.” —Lauren Soloff
Domino Magazine’s Spring Issue has been open to page 77 on my desk for a few weeks now—serving as inspiration for a new client project I’m working on in this beautiful Ottawa house. This airy art-filled house owned by Leanne Citrone and her husband, is a testament to the science of decorating a house around an art collection, and not the other way around. The couple started collecting art slowly—starting with a beach scene by Massimo Vitali—and seeked the help of designer Lauren Soloff to bring their collection together in a coherent manner.
The rooms were kept neutral: with lost of natural colors and textures: ivory linen, jute, tan leather, sheepskin, organic wood… This allowed the art to truly stand out. Each piece in the house was chosen carefully and as such, the design evolved organically over a period of two years. There is no better way to decorate a home. Read the story on Domino.
