Black-and-White Courtyard Features Photograph of Sculpture as Centerpiece
Art consultant Alex Ray selected a photograph of Antonio Canova's Neoclassical sculpture of Psyche and Cupid at the Louvre as the centerpiece of "An Ode to Innocence," the private courtyard at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. Ray showcases the photo in a weatherproofed light box that doubles as a lighting source at night. Landscape architect Frank Eddy added floating peonies in the shallow pool to add to the romance of the setting.
This small but lovely dining set lends itself nicely to the white French Country kitchen and the black and white toile wallpaper that adorns the dining room wall. The addition of black accessories also enhance the French Country theme. This dining room/kitchen combination is a warm, inviting space.
Channeling the lines and functionality of a classic hutch, a large glass-front cabinet hangs above distressed cabinetry in this quaint breakfast nook. Toile wallpaper is a chic French country backdrop for the collection of stemware.
A drawing of a butler has been added to one wall in a dining room, along with signatures of friends and family of the homeowners. Off to one side, a glass topped dining table is set for two, including a bottle of white wine.
