Matisse Inspired

Leafing through some of my "saved" Architectural Digest Magazines - I came across these Rooms that were directly inspired by a Collection of 20 Matisse Silk-screened Prints. (The Original Collages were designed by Matisse for the Book "Jazz" in 1947.)
How Fresh and Vibrant they still look today-!
In this room - Interior Designer Thomas Britt made a great use of the primary colors - Red- Yellow - and Blue.
He chose a bold Blue & Yellow Chintz and a Blue & Ivory stripe - Both of which pick up many of the same colors in the Matisses -
the whole design swung from that - He says.
The Louis XVI chairs establish order in the room - the chintz upholstered pieces - relax it - in a way - mess it up a little-!
but still so amazingly it all works so delightfully-!
