Pitch: My love for art and lack of open wall space was the challenge here. I decided to let my window treatments double as artwork. I replicated the Rothko on a home-made roman shade and the Monsieur Z illustration onto japanese sliding screen. I also wanted to have a bar and was able to make use of a small unused corner in dining area. I got to design and/or re-upholster/re-surface most of my own furniture.
Your favorite element:
I'd have to say the Monsieur Z mural I'm painting on the window treatment, it's been almost a year since I conceptualized and it's a great conversation piece. I wanted a piece that would cover the large window with a fantasy like image that when opened up, still functions as 2 seperate images, the sunset on left and the model on the right.
