Back of the Closet 2: The Painted Home

I selected these images earlier this summer, when North America was lushly green and pinkly floral. I thought about composing a post then, but felt that there was enough natural color in my world at the moment; I’d save these for a rainy day.

It isn’t raining, but today there’s a real nip in the air and the skies are turning somber. Consequently, I’m craving a riot of color.

Hence the caravans. I’ve always loved painted furniture, a la Swedish Gustavian style.

or Vanessa Bell-sian screens and fireplaces.

Susannah Hunter also does a gorgeous screen in leather appliqué (though I haven't had luck with her bags).

But to have a delightfully painted home, that’s a different story. What would you wear?!

I'd like multiple rooms full of that furniture.

I realize that doesn't answer your "what would you wear" question. I think the furniture would trump anything I could wear.

That screen is divine. I'd wear black so as not to distract from it.
