Monday Match: Collectors' Edition

{Every week I post an image of an interior that reminds me of a work of art either in its palette, composition or mood.}

* The Thanksgiving holiday is over and my neighbors are hanging up their Christmas lights. Every year I make grand plans for decluttering before I start flinging my tinsel. Then I see spaces like the Hovey home, or paintings like the one above and decide that there is something comforting about living amid piles of interesting things.

  1. This is my exact dilemma when it comes to my space too. Do I crave minimal, clean, organized, or English and layered and as you said, piles of stuff? I cannot decide.

    This Monday Match is interesting to me because besides the piles of stuff, there is something else that makes one image recall the other, but I can't put my finger on what. I can only see it when I squint my eyes.
