What Houzz contributors are saying:
Whether the art features a celebrity — such as this image of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis — or not, if you want to make this move, it’s often best employed in a spare, modern interior. In a clean-lined room such as this one, the image has life and power. If it were in a room that featured more art or accessories, the look could be overpowering.
There aren’t that many places where one can create a home like this. Totally open, with only the most minimalist structure, this room takes full advantage of the landscape and climate where it’s set.The room, sandwiched as it is between the floor and ceiling planes, expands outward and to the mountains in the distance. The only thing holding it back is a portrait that’s larger than life (of a woman who was larger than life). Staring back at us, she prevents the room from being untethered and chaotic.
