Peonies and Emerald Spirits


The painted lady’s emerald earring dangles and acts as an upholstered inspiration for my client’s dining room seating, a gathering of the minds– and spirits.  Keyhole shaped, Italian Empire sofa and chairs radiate chartreuse, Kelly, and emerald greens. All similar colors of intoxicating libations, but most importantly the color of growth and balance.

Peonies are seasonally scattered about the property, yet in the dining room they are illustrated, lasting all year round. In order to quiet the mirrored wall, we added a continuation of the peony vines and flowers from the wallpaper across the mirror. The vines appear, slowly disappear and then appear again. Much like a good spirit.
