ARTSY FARTSY: GRAEME MONTGOMERY

Every morning I wake up and start the work day with coffee, emails and blogs. I have a few blogs that I read religiously, one of them being, Elements of Style. I'm sure, if you're into blogs, it's one of your daily reads, as well. Erin is an interior designer, but she writes about anything and everything. It's always entertaining and never disappoints. She just published her first book, too. Which is so, so good - it made the New York Times Best Sellers list.

Today's post was about a crazy fabulous bedroom makeover, by Design Daredevil’s  Jessie Miller. The before and after pictures are insane. You have to go check it out.

Anyways, Erin showed pictures of the completed bedroom and then suggested some furnishings that would achieve a similar look. She included this print by Graeme Montgomery.

I love it....and I don't even like cats. I'm always looking for unique artwork, so I looked into more of Montgomery's work. He's one of the world’s leading photographers of luxury fashion items. His photographs are mainly editorial, but some can be purchased on Art.com. These are a few of my favorites.

These would look so cute as a grouping and hung in a kitchen or dining area!
