Living with art

September 28, 2003|Barbara Thornburg | Barbara Thornburg is senior home design editor for the magazine.

It doesn't matter if you're a serious collector like Eli Broad or Peter Norton or a casual fan of Bauer redware vases and Japanese woodblock prints when it comes to cohabiting with art. Everyone faces the same issues: Where should these cherished objects be displayed? How does one light them appropriately? What steps can be taken to safeguard them against the ravages of time and nature? The answers, like the art itself, will differ from person to person and from collection to collection. But there are solutions

to fit every pocketbook. On the following pages, 11 Southern California collectors share their personal home galleries and offer ideas and solutions for the design challenges of living with art.
