Decorating Day of the Dead

Colorful Ethnic Home Decor
by Miriam Schulman


Decorating Idea using ethnic Mexican Decor

Designer Kathryn M. Ireland used her own color-saturated fabrics, which pack a punch in this guest bedroom. Featured in the March 2008 issue of House Beautiful. Room is re-imagined with my artwork.

“Forte Forest” original watercolor for sale

The watercolor painting depicts an abstract landscape with trees in a forest lit up by the changing orange and yellow maple leaves of autumn. The painting is a color field painting with jade green, phlox purple, and yellow orange.

The modern tree art is also representational. The collage elements are torn pieces of painted pieces of sheet music.The painted piano sheet music represents the bark of maple trees. This stunning large wall art will look great with many decorating schemes but is shown here with the colorful ethnic bedroom.
