Color Therapy

"Moroccan Tea Break" 9" x 12" Watercolor - Mary Maki Rae -2011(c)
******************************************
 If you're familar with some of my Serigraph Prints - you'll know why I really enjoy the following Decor Images of this Paris Apartement.
A Directoire treasure - authentic - and intact but sober when Designer Roberto Bergero discovered it.
I find it so cheery and uplifting during this time of Winter.  When on the Sunny days the grass looks so extroidinaryly Bright Green - even though there are no Green leaves in sight - You just know Spring will be coming soon-!

The "Bergero Style" emphatically does not recommend it's self to the faint-hearted who prefer the peaceful beige and off-white.  This decor by Bergero is an explosive cocktail of Canary Yellow - Shocking Pink - Apple Green and Scarlet-!  A feast for the eyes on a Winter's Gray day-!

The dining room - Louis Quinze-style arm chair - painted White by Bergero.


Living room - The carpet was Hand-painted by Bergero.

The Directore Chair is upholstered in a Moire-and-Velvet Stripe Fabric.
Other side of Dining Room - On the Mantlepiece is a Plaster Bust of
"The Doryphoros" (one of the best known Greek Classical Sculptures)

Bedroom - Bergero made the Pair of Hurricane Lamps on the Mantlepiece -
by combining "Ikea" Candle-stick lamps painted Black -
 and 19th Century Russian Bases.

Twig with Nest Lamp -  Designed By Bergero
