Unexpected places to put art

Here is a selection of pictures to give ideas on where to install your art in places you didn’t think of. You can also play with the definition of art to do this; for instance an object of design that is both a piece of art and a useful piece of furniture. The good thing is that you could go for more personal art when it comes to more personal spaces; such as a very girly painting or fashion photography in a woman’s closet.
