The Late Work

If you live in the Atlanta area or plan on visiting soon you should take the time to visit the High Museum and check out the Salvador Dali exhibit. We think you will find his work delightfully unexpected, much like the artist himself.  The High is the sole venue for the first exhibition to focus on Dalí's art after 1940. The exhibition, featuring more than 100 works including 40 paintings and a related group of drawings, prints and other Dalí ephemera, explores the artist's enduring fascination with science, optical effects and illusionism, and his surprising connections to artists of the 1960s and 1970s such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Willem de Kooning. The exhibition continues until January, 9 2011 and here is a small sampling of what you will see....

Are you heading to the northeast for business or pleasure?  Be sure to spend some time in one of our favorite places and explore exceptional elegance and inspiration in architecture, art and interior design.  Upon arriving on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, RI, be sure and head straight for The Breakers. A spectacular 70-room Italian Renaissance-style palazzo that the Vanderbilt family called their "summer cottage."  The symmetry of design, opulence and lavish use of alabaster, marble, mosaics, and antique woods rival the magnificent northern Italian Renaissance palaces after which it was modeled.

Then it's down the road to Rosecliff  which was built strictly as a summer residence for Tessie and Herman Oelrich. The most notable feature is the impressive heart shaped limestone staircase, also know as the sweetheart's staircase.  As you enter the 40 x 80 ballroom you may recognize it as where Arnold Schwarzenegger tangoed with Tia Carrere in "True Lies"

The Ballroom

The Dining Room

Be sure and visit Chateau-sur-Mer which is considered one of America's finest examples of lavish Victorian architecture and design   Victorian society looked to a future built on industrial wealth and science, while its art looked to the past, inspired by a romantic fascination for history, nature, and adventures in exotic lands. Chateau-sur-Mer is a landmark to all of these Victorian interests. Truly a must see!!

Visit for information about all 11 properties, located on 80 acres of gardens and parks!  Safe travels!!

At iNvision Design Group, our tag line is Form, Function, Experience. We strive to utilize the elements and principles of design as a guide in choosing product for our work. The following imagesshow the importance of FORM, the shape of an object, and how straight lines (masculine) and curved lines (feminine) establish ...the form of a piece. Remember that FORM can be geometric (man-made) or natural (organic). By using this element carefully to pull together the design of a room, we create beautiful and inspired spaces. We'd like to share our great FORM with you.....
