Design inspiration comes in many forms. Artist, Alice Shapiro, found her inspiration while visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art and created the following digital masterpieces. She gives us a bit of her insight to each piece and shares the original images that struck her imagination.
Color is Healing, Color is Fun. My red HEARTS design, a primitive-style motif with a modern flavor, was inspired by art from The Metropolitan Museum of Art collections. HEARTS will brighten your décor and make you smile. The color red, according to Christine Tse Interiors who writes about color in design in our January newsletter, is stimulating, energizing and oozes warmth. She recommends red in a playroom, kitchen or any area that has activity. Our HEARTS design is a perfect Valentines Day accent piece and also opens your heart all year round.
