Art-Inspired Interiors

Serious collectors know that a scaled back, cleanly furnished room enhances their art collection.

Conversely a minimalist neutral-paletted interior relies on exciting artwork to give it character.

Linking the artworks and the furnishings are the decorative accessories. Pillows are particularly suitable to the purpose. When the inspiration for the pillow design is taken from the art, it transfers the excitement into external pieces to scatter through the space. Eyes love to connect line with line, motif with motif, and colour with colour. Accessories, pillows and art that work together make very gratifying design components.Screen Shot 2019-10-29 at 12.44.38 PM.pngTextiles are all pure linen, inserts are all feather and down.
