Subway Art

Subway Chic
Living room in Miami, Florida, by Charlotte Dunagan for Atmosphere Creations Design Group. 

....Love this room.  Would move into it immediately - though the family might be a little upset.  {No invitation, yet.  Must have been lost in the mail.  Ha!} While the water view in the distance is beautiful, that subway art ottoman is my absolute favorite thing.  I want one.

Probably because of its little nod to the past, subway inspired art is a fitting choice in even the most up-to-date interiors.   When executed well... it can be clever and creative. 

Since the first rapid transit system, London Underground, opened in 1863, we have needed signage!  Fortunately, some ingenious folks have started using subway inspired art in interior spaces with spectacular results.
High gloss finish... looks fantastic against the matte off-white walls.  Well done!

Garvey chair from ANTHROPOLOGIE uses vintage inspired upholstery fabric. 

"Paris Places Print" from Ballard Designs is a great example of the availability of subway inspired art

And, subway art can be personalized.  "Favorite Roads" was a custom design done for my master bedroom via Etsy.
Search:  'Subway art custom' on the Etsy website to find your favorites.
