They’ve been in the midst of rebuilding their home for months now.
One of the things that burned in the fire was a sideboard/buffet I had painted with a gold Chinoiserie design.
It was the first of its kind that I had ever attempted. I enjoyed researching and actually painting the design. So I was very happy when she asked me to paint a cabinet door ‘any-way-I-wanted’ for her new home.
The painted door was already beautifully painted with a sailboat and seascape. It was very pretty but, it wasn’t her style, so I decided since she had lost the sideboard in the fire,
I’d paint another Chinoiserie design.
As it turned out, her powder room design uses gold and black, so a Chinoiserie design would be perfect.
And I am so pleased with the way it turned out…..
I love the gold and black.
I’m not certain, but to me it seems that oriental painting motifs tell a story in their design. I like to think my love birds are telling a story as they overlook the scenery.
Perfect little powder room…the Perfect Painted door…
