From lighting and space to placement and proportion, museums take every nuance into account to maximize the presentation value for each work of art. Incorporating the same principles and techniques into one’s home elevates living to an art form in itself.

The Sotheby’s brand has a long heritage representing the finest in art, and now the best of luxury real estate. These homes show how art enhances any space – and how good home design is like a fine work of art.
