new ideas for designers and architects
When a dear, long time client and friend expressed interest in decorating his master bedroom with custom designed and painted curtains, a wonderful new artistic challenge was set and accepted.
After sketches and brainstorming, what was going to be an abstract and painterly brushwork design became movable renditions and perspectives of an open Renaissance main square, based on etchings by Dutch perspective master Jan Vredeman de Vries (1527-1607).
The two walls to be covered with curtains presented an opportunity to create an image that would be simultaneously referential to painting, architecture, theater and decoration.
To that effect a custom double curtain rod was created to play with the overlapping of the hand painted panels, visually connected throughout the room by the constant presence of a horizon line.
This allowed for different ways to recreate the perspectives each time the curtains were open or closed, regardless of where they stopped.
During the day, the existing windows create a nuanced light box effect shining through the painted design.
In the evening, the light and warm linen fabric background becomes a larger-than-life study in perspective, with its myriad hand painted lines calmly expanding the perception of space in this very chic room.
