CREATING A COLOURFUL SPACE

IMG_2776.jpg

In my recent project I decided to play with a pop of colours for my client's small entertaining space in the house.  I haven't created some thing this vibrant in a while. Here it is, featuring select collections from Bob Mitchell and William Gold in custom fabrics.  The large painting in the adjoining area is a commission from Hans-Guenter Hoeffken in Berlin, Germany, titled - Colourful Pond! 

LOOK UP ! MOSAIC DESIGN FOR A CEILING - TAMARA BISTRO

Art on the ceiling is often passed by when designing.  However, it can take center stage in a restaurant because the ceiling is like a huge blank canvas available to play with and introduce something dramatic.  Get inspired by this ceiling mosaic created for the Tamara Bistro in South Miami Beach’s Art Deco hotel - The National.  Tamara de Lempicka, the modernist polish born artist very inspired by cubism was a well recognized painter from the roaring 1920s.  If you are in South Miami Beach do not miss dining here for an ambiance of the 1920s.  The mosaic was inspired by “Young Lady in Green” c. 1927. The original Oil painting on plywood created by the artist can be viewed at The National Museum of Modern Art in Paris.  A nostalgic memory of my yesteryears in Miami Beach’s Art Deco district.
