Autumn’s Romance with Purple.

Plum Pretty!

Decorating Idea with Teal and Purple

Casual style can be yours with a coat of Benjamin Moore paint, romantic dried flower arrangements, a white garden stool, purple throw and original artwork. In this relaxed and refined living room, designer Jim Howard chose to paint the walls an azure blue and used two coats of clear high-gloss varnish. White trim and rope-backed chair keep the room relaxed. Walls are Benjamin Moore‘s Shenendoah. The rope-backed Orkney Island chair from Phoebe Howard who has a personal shopper interior design blog. Touches of phlox purple are in the flowers, artwork. and cashmere throw. The photo originally appeared in House Beautiful

Original Artwork 

Fall Purple
Size: 22×29.5″ watercolor on Arches paper

Nature appears nearly abstract when simplified as a color field painting. Original mixed media collage tree art depicts an abstract landscape with bare trees in a forest. In the distance the sky is a light orchid, with a golden band of sunshine beneath. The mountains and the deep forest beyond make the next band that ranges from deep teal to phlox purple.The collage elements are torn pieces of painted pieces of sheet music. The painted piano sheet music represents the bark of trees. This stunning large wall art will look great with many decorating schemes. Dominant colors in this artwork are lavender, phlox purple, lilac, teal and a band of golden yellow. The idea of creating color fields with trees in front were inspired by the oil paintings of Wolf Kahn. This painting is done entirely in watercolor including the collage pieces which are tinted with watercolor. Buy this artwork online from etsy.
