Recognizing Genius


These images are from Elle Decor (but I'm not sure if it was US or the European version) in September of some unknown year. These are in my giant-flowers-on-walls folder as well and I thought you might enjoy them. The artist is Wouter Dolk, who is Dutch, but I believe currently living in Germany. Dolk uses an egg tempera on thickly textured paper. Take a minute to visit his web site - the images there are amazing as well. There is one installation in particular featuring red birds in trees inspired by the 18th c. artist Jacques Barraband that is hauntingly beautiful.

I agree - the floor is amazing as well - I almost can't imagine furniture in there.

I think the design for your powder room is "genius". Please let us see pics of it when it is finished.
I love peonies, the smell always takes me back to my childhood in my Grandmother's garden. I can't get enough of them when they are in season. The wallpaper is brilliant because it is all year round.
PS...love the nickel sink!!
