All the color is in the paintings

Quietly Sophisticated

Fine Art Botanical Prints
In ordinary Cuban houses, the furniture is plain, the floors are tile, the walls are white. All the color is in the paintings. ~Diaz-Azcuy

Silk fabrics, sisal, and ivory tones give a San Francisco living room a soft, serene look. Designer Orlando Diaz-Azcuy wanted it to be casual and modern, with a quiet air of sophistication. Lancaster sofa and club chairs, Lyonnaise chair, and Rateau coffee table are by DessinFournir. The framed botanical artwork is available from my etsy store either as large fine art prints or as unframed original pastel drawings. McGuire's Cocoon lamp by Robert Kuo sits on a Gregorius Pineo side table. The original photograph by David Duncan Livingston of this interior appeared in House Beautiful

A handcrafterd subsitute for the color blocked pillows on the sofa can also be found on etsy through The Urban Cottage.
