Inside the Sartorial Grandeur of these Terracotta Suites

Have an artistic bent? Rather than agonizing over office decorating, turn a simple room into a work of art by going through the tried-and-true techniques of interior decorating.

Of course, you can add in whatever decorations you wish—Old Masters, Post-it notes, a beaded mantel or one of Amazon’s 1,500 ingenious hanging clips for hanging artwork — but always avoid ones that you wouldn’t find in an art gallery.

Perhaps you don’t have the space for it, or some things simply aren’t right for your home. Before investing too much time in perfecting those features, remember that certain art interiors are best suited for a certain aesthetic. This can make it easy to place very different decor that will complement the artist’s style.

For example, the sartorial aesthetic of Soho-based artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is right in line with homes built during the mid-20th century. The “Yellow Wallace” sofa, designed by Eero Saarinen, will be comfortable on any floor.

“I don’t like minimalism,” Lozano-Hemmer says. “I love light. I love lively and spiffy, so I’m partial to the style of the mid-century modern decorators.”
