It would be the perfect home for Sarah were it not for the fact they can’t have cats. “I have offered bribes and contracts and everything I can think of to our landlord but we just can’t have a cat.” Luckily, Cat Town Cafe, America’s first permanent cat cafe, is within walking distance. It also happens to be one of several non-profit groups where Sarah has volunteered her design work. Other than the lamentable absence of a cat, I can imagine that an ideal evening would be spent in Sarah and Matthew’s gorgeous home, listening to their records, sipping Matthew’s flawlessly mixed cocktails, all while coveting that unbelievable crown molding. And, of course, toasting Sarah on her courageous and inspired decision to reimagine her life.
“Always interested in the arts, we had early careers in the restaurant and plumbing businesses,” Vivian shares. “We married and settled in Oxford, MS in 1999 where we began our art careers and business in earnest. We are developing a sort of arts compound where we live, work and promote regional artists. We have taken our time reclaiming the acreage we acquired and look forward to the coming additions/evolution, including a sculpture garden in the field outside our home.” The arts compound she’s referring to is the rural art gallery she and Walter opened three years ago, sitting off the ground in a treehouse-like setting, aptly named The Oxford Treehouse Gallery, just 200 yards from their home. The gallery, as well as their home, houses a lot of their own art, too. Walter is an artist/blacksmith and Vivian is a painter and block printer.
Maybe it’s the way they drape or the texture they add to a space, but hanging elements seem to be having a major moment in design right now. Whether it’s the revived 70s-chic look of macrame and woven wall hangings, dramatic hanging plants or artfully conceived backdrops (see below), hanging décor has made its way into almost every home tour we’ve run for the past year. For me, hanging décor provides multiple design solutions at once: it offers texture and color, it can add depth and sound proofing, and it can fill awkward spaces (especially in corners) by being suspended in the air. So today I’m taking a look at 20 incredible examples of hanging décor that have inspired me to rethink my “living with empty walls” mantra for this year. Hopefully these rooms can provide some clever DIY solutions for spring and summer decorating. xo, grace
