Friday Odds and Ends

I'll bet my interior design savvy followers can help me identify this blue and white elephant toile. Any ideas? It reminds me of John Robshaw, but I can't locate it.

You know how much I love combining abstract modern art and Chinoiserie. Small pieces are wonderful in gallery walls, but they also work beautifully in a bookcase or on a piece of furniture. Here is my new work by Kerry Steele in my living room bookcase. I framed it in an acrylic frame from Michael's for about $5.

Below are other examples of combining small abstracts and Chinoiserie as well as some pieces currently available by Kerry Steele starting at $15 - $25. A budget friendly way to start a collection of modern art. Modern art is my very favorite way of freshening a room.

  2. Beth, did anyone identify that fabric with the elephant toile on it?
    I saw the fabric on the Paris trade show site Maison Objet.
    It doesn't identify the fabric, but may give you a lead if you can read enough French to negotiate through the site.
    Best, Ellen
