The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County often asks its visitors to reimagine their definition of “art.” In its latest exhibition, it pairs two mediums—visual art and interior design—to create stunning vignettes that are as inspirational as they are aesthetically pleasing.
On display through May 12, “Art & Décor” matched eight local designers with eight area artists. The task was simple: Design a room around a work of art. The results are varied, compelling, and very sophisticated. Here are a few of our favorite spaces.
