As I was decorating my new apartment, I decided I needed my first piece of real art. Yep, I did. And so, my Hugo Guinness collection has begun. I have been having a love affair with Hugo (yes, of those Guinness’s – cousin of Daphne) prints for awhile now, and knew one needed to be mine. Maybe it was first seeing them scattered all over the walls in the Tenenbaum’s house in The Royal Tenenbaums, or in Kate and Andy Spade’s home in just about every cool interior magazine or blog, or in a Real Simple magazine spread a couple of years ago- the London born, Brooklyn dwelling artist’s lino prints of quirky drawings captured my heart. I love the look of a collection of the prints all haphazardly hung up on gallery wall- or even mixed in with other art. Of course I can’t wait to collect more.
What did I choose for my first Hugo? ‘Stylish‘ of course…
Hugo and wife Elliott Puckette’s Brooklyn living room from Vogue Living, a Hugo Guinness entryway gallery, Linda Rodin’s dreamy bedroom with Hugos over her bed from Matchbook Magazine (you have to check out the rest of her place – magical), and my own ‘Stylish’ print in my Philadelphia bedroom
