Color Story: Signifying the time of day when everything starts to wind down, Dusk Blue offers a calming sense of serenity making it a fantastic color to use in decorating. In this East Hampton home decorated by Meg Braff, soft blues are combined with whites and neutrals. The original photo, taken by James Merrel, has been digitally altered to show you what this home would look like with my original artwork, Moonlight Sonata.

Dusk Blue: Pantone 2013 Color
Decorating Details: To give the open-flow living and dining rooms of an East Hampton, New York, house a light, relaxed air, designer Meg Braff used soft blues and whites, linens, cottons, and a seagrass rug (by Stark carpet?). The sofa is upholstered in Dunemere Texture in Pale Blue by Hinson; the chair cushion fabric is Linea from Pollack. Walls and trim are painted Benjamin Moore's White Dove. The bold shapes in the painting are echoed in the circular backs of the Elkins Loop armchairs from C. Bell. Club chairs are upholstered in Bali II in Denim on White, by China Seas. Curtains are Jane Churchill's Nursery Stripe in Blue.

Piano Music adds visual interest

The collage elements are torn pieces of painted pieces of piano sheet music as well as torn patterned tissue papers. 

The painted piano sheet music represents the bark of trees which shimmer with subtle silver light. This stunning large wall art will look great with many decorating schemes.
