Collaborations in Art and Design

By Lisa Peck, ASID
Living Room complete? Almost, but we needed just the right art for above the fireplace. Lauren Setum, the client and I all agreed that commissioning a piece of art from local artist Kimberlee Joy Roth was not only the perfect thing but would be a reasonable solution and had a nice tie to the clients neighborhood. Commissioning art can sound scary but having a piece of art you love is worth taking a leap.
