People love to hate on gallery walls. Sometimes rightly so. If they are put together with artwork that has been collected from different periods with beautiful gilt frames and French mating, the result can be quite elegant. Such is the case with the apartment that Richard Rabel renovated and decorated for Alan Wintermute, a specialist in Old Masters paintings at Christie’s, and Colin Bailey, the director of The Morgan Library & Museum that was just featured on ArchitecturalDigest.com. Of course, if a gallery wall includes pieces from Jean-Antoine Watteau, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Lucian Freud, and David Hockney, that helps. I also think this is one of loveliest masculine apartments I’ve seen in a while. How do you feel about gallery walls now?
