My client sent a picture of a room (designed by the very talented Elizabeth Bauer and featured in the June/July issue of Lonny magazine) as a guide to the colour palette she'd like in her painting. Which then gave me the idea to 'virtually' hang the artwork in that same room. So here it is, albeit hung horizontally this time....
...and the original room, via Lonny magazine. I love Elizabeth's use of bright colour, and after all - who wouldn't enjoy living in such a happy space?

And here's the actual painting, in detail...

And then there was no stopping me! Here's a room I love, from Canadian House and Home, tweaked to feature a piece from my 'Into the Blue' series.
...and the original
who needs windows anyway?
And one last one - I added my 'Sea Coral III in Denim' to this room which was featured in the now-defunct Metropolitan Home magazine (although I do love the original abstract)
So, what do you think of my virtual designs? Of course, this was just a bit of fun and in no way am I suggesting that the original rooms aren't fantastic - I love all of them, which is why they've been saved in my inspiration files. But it's a great way to picture artwork in situ, particularly large pieces, and I think it can be a valuable tool when you're decorating a room.
Right, I've done enough 'virtual' work for one day - better do some of the real stuff!
