Page through local interior designer Suzanne Lovell’s new coffee-table book Artistic Interiors (Stewart, Tabori & Chang) and you will see a Roy Lichtenstein painting, a hanging brass monkey by Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante, and Steve McCurry’s haunting photograph Afghan Girl. Notice how Lovell incorporates these works and dozens of others into design schemes that feel both elegant and livable, rather than gallery-like. It’s an instant education in how art and furniture can live in harmony.
