Did you know that nearly every major museum now allows you to browse their collections online? One of my personal favorites is the Met in New York. You type in any category and are likely to run into some amazing finds, many that have never been publically displayed. It’s sort of like a build-your-own Antiques Roadshow.
Of course what really piques our interest are all things interior, so we’ve decided to explore the art of interior drawing with some fun examples from the 1800’s. Some are by famouses (like Louis Comfort Tiffany) and some weren’t even signed, but each represents the interior styles at the time – from the ornate wood trim in the British drawings to the detailed wallpaper and textiles in the Dutch ones. In the age of Instagram, Pinterest and 3D renderings, it’s nice to have such rich examples of interior design history.
