Three Bedroom Essentials

24 Apr

One trinket from mom with an inspirational message to get you through life.

A vanity for pampering.

And a beautiful painting that takes you where only far off dreams can take you.

The one in our room is by the great Russian French Artist Marc Chagall, and it is part of the 12 suite collection from “The Arabian Nights” called “Mounting the ebony horse.” I can’t tell you enough how often I gaze at this painting and it never fails to take me to the heavens above which is one of the characteristics Chagall is known for. I love everything about it, how he basically used one color (turquois) in different shades, included the sky, the sun, the moon, and a couple mounting on a horse traveling to some fantasy land, (mounting on a horse to the heavens with my husband is my deepest desire). Chagall’s work was known for figurative, narrative art and dream-like quality, it is no wonder why I chose to have one of his paintings in our bedroom.

And I leave you here with a quote from Chagall:

My hands were too soft.. I had to find some special occupation, some kind of work that would not force me to turn away from the sky and the stars, that would allow me to discover the meaning of life.
Marc Chagall
