Abstract Landscapes

Julia Contacessi is a painter from Connecticut who explores colour and light in her layered paintings. It’s fun to pick out a hue from one of her art works and reflect it in the furniture, like this elegant blue bench.

And now for some more glamour and sunshine! If you’re not very fond of being reminded of grey skies and moody days, go for an image that brings the sunshine in. Like this one, with a touch of gold.


This painting by Madlen Design features a beautiful play of colour, shapes and light. It’s almost like a window looking out onto a snowy landscape. The smaller, quite similar paintings on the floor are a playful touch and break up the moodiness of the image.


This one is a bit different, a bit playful. The many shades of grey could be clouds, but that idea is subverted by the golden dots in a grid. Or do those evoke sunlight? All in all, a very interesting painting by artist Nina Holst.


If you like a bit of drama, go for a large image that evokes thunder clouds. Gorgeous, isn’t it? You don’t need much else for an impressive hallway, just a simple but beautiful chair and equally classy lamp.


A very sophisticated painting by Julia Kotenko that you could watch forever, like clouds passing by. It suits the very chic corner. The glamorous lamp and foot stools turn this hallway from a forgettable space into a little haven of luxury.

This is a fun but chic pairing of an abstract image and a poem in a lovely font. The golden frames make the images look extra classy – as does the candle stick. Pretty cool.

How evocative is this gorgeous image? It could be a bay, with the hills reflecting in the water. The purity and simple colours make it the perfect addition to a minimalist but warm interior. It’s from Nancy Knight art at Esy, by the way.
