This combination took my breath away. I think the painting is gorgeous, but the color on the walls and the placement of the orchid in front makes it so much more.
Can you see what I mean? Imagine a tray of violets on the table instead of the orchid-it wouldn't look right, would it?
Or imagine that the walls were painted pale gray like the marble table top - bland right?
Sometimes you have to see something in place before you know if it is right. The design term for this process is "auditioning." You are "auditioning" pieces in a setting to see if they should be given the part. Neat, eh?
I thought you might like to throw this into your next home makeover conversation..."I need to audition some new pillows for the family room." Ha!
