Flowers are romantic, so why not put a still life in the bedroom? The green glass objects in this room complement the shades of green in the painting. And the roses on the bed stand make it even more romantic.

Not only when it comes to wall decoration can the Golden Age be an inspiration. Brass candlesticks and blue and white crockery are also a stylish wink at the era. Those really enamoured by the idea can add their own fruit still life.

The dark backgrounds are part of what’s so special about the floral still lifes of the Golden Age. It makes the flowers really stand out. Put a print on a wall with a similar shade and the effect is doubly beautiful.


Is it a photograph or a painting? Dutch photographer Bas Meeuws creates still lifes that call to mind the paintings by the Dutch Masters of the 17th century. He photographs the flowers one by one and then digitally arranges them into a lush bouquet.
