Something about this vignette grabbed my attention. The homeowner, Teresa Ginori, has on her rustic Italian property an abundance of enormous wild hydrangea bushes. So she has plenty to bring inside. I love the contrast of the fresh greenish-white flowers juxtaposed with the black lacquered Asian chest and the silver candlesticks.
The punch though seems to come from the zebra portrait. When I saw it I was reminded of the famous Scalamandre wallpaper.
