The Art

The home we leased (for one week) was a small one story ranch house in West Palm Beach, with a wonderful salt water heated pool in the beautifully landscaped backyard. The owner (who has just started leasing it) was for eighteen years the head fashion director of probably the worlds top fashion magazine. She had the walls of her colorful "Little Ranch", as she refers to it, covered with interesting art.
Yes, that is an interpretation of Henri Matisse's Icarus cutout guarding the pool.
Which was also magical by night.
What ranch is complete without it's own cow. A life sized print of Andy Warhol's Pink Cow greets you as you walk in the door.....sorry about my sloppy photography. There was obviously a large picture window too!
There wasn't a wall that wasn't sporting some interesting art object
 some quite colorful

and some not
But there was certainly something that appealed to everyone
Which was my favorite? Well, come again.(and I will show you) There were three things that would catch any one's eyes!


  1. Must have been a pleasure to be there!

  2. I'm really enjoying your trip Janey!

  3. So you stayed in the house of Anna Wintour?:) it looks wonderful to be there with all the art around.

    1. Oh you are good Marianne. Right magazine. But, this house belonged to the Fashion Director (retired) Not the editor!

  4. The pool view is really magical at night. And, I love those art works. Thanks for sharing :)

  5. Love the pool view at night, it's inspiring me to make my pool view at night a little more exciting :) Fabulous art around on the walls, would have been a fun week Janey :)
