After purchasing a three-story modern home, Brian Albach knew he needed to create a comfortable yet upscale space for himself, family and friends to enjoy. The former homeowners suggested he call Litsa Spanos of ADC Fine Art to help him find the perfect artwork. "After touring his home and getting to know Brian and the way he lives, dresses and entertains, I knew the art had to be an extension of that," states Litsa. We started off with a tour of the gallery to see what resonated with him, colors he was drawn to and styles he liked.

After pulling a variety of pieces together, we took them to his home to see what looked best and find a place for each piece. His home is large with expansive walls, Litsa kept in mind the expansive walls of the space and made sure that the artwork was up to scale. The home resulted in a cohesive and unified style with interesting pieces in each room.

“I love how all of the artwork fits perfectly in my home and reflects my personality - especially the painting of Marilyn Monroe. I’m a huge fan,” Brian exclaims. Litsa found the perfect wall and excitedly placed Mary Maguire’s “Diamonds 2” directly next to the bed . It added a romantic, soft and sultry feature to his bedroom. “Who wouldn’t want to look at Marilyn first thing in the morning?” she questioned. She then paired it with a series of mirrored hand-blown glass stones on the other side and a splashy dimensional abstract by Pamela Nielson next to the windows.

Once the bedroom was complete, other unique works were placed throughout the home. Color and texture was added throughout the house to give it more depth and dimension.

"Curating Brian’s collection was one of my favorite projects," states Litsa. "Brian comes to most of our art openings, his daughter Lizzie works with us and he also selected art for his office. I’m pretty sure he’s hooked!"
