Smokey Blue and Amethyst
I have a dim memory that Domino once designed a room inspired by a John Singer Sargent painting, so I won't go down that road. But I will highlight a few timeless elements from the artist's iconic portrait of Lady Agnew, above: smokey blue-green Asian silk, French chair upholstered in a refined floral, and lilac and amethyst tones juxtaposed with blue.
Painted in 1892, the work now belongs to the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh. Even Lady Agnew's jewelry is enduring enough for the Museum to sell similar styles in its gift shop.
Grayish blue with magenta or amethyst hues is also very "now." Case in point: Rashida Jones' petite studio apartment photographed by Paul Costello for Domino, February 2008.
