Inspiration Tableau

Acrylic Paintings By Mary Maki Rae - 2011 (c)
*****************************************
A Tableau of some Favorite Things - most of mine happen to be Paintings and Flowers.  What story do they tell that could be inspiration for Decor-?
First of all - the colors make me extremely Happy and put me in mind of a Summer Cottage with a resplendent - plentiful Flower Garden.
Dove Painting - 14" x18" Acrylic - Mary Maki Rae 2011(c)

 A surprise gift of an armful of soft Pink and Lavender Dahlias (It felt like a Birthday Party-!) They corresponded beautifully (along with the small vase of my Geraniums and Cosmos) - with my recent paintings.
This could be a corner of a Kitchen/ cum Dining Room with walls of soft "textured" Blue/Lavender - or Ivory. Trimmed with semi-gloss White.
Also love the Idea of a Hand-Painted Mural of Flowered Topiary - Antique White Wicker or Iron Chairs - Cushioned with deep mauve silk.
A Table cloth of Brilliant Blue Stripes would set off the Blue & White China - Elegantly.

In the Bedroom - a Table set for Two before a white marble Fireplace.
Love those mauve striped silk curtains at an open window - that are softly blown by the evening breeze.
