|"The Fifer" by Manet|
Ready for a match that takes a bit more right-brain muscling? The color palette of crimson, gold, ocher, putty and slate (with pops of crisp black and white) is an obvious starting point. Now check out the way the pointed overhead light fixture mirrors the fifer's cap, or the way that the lamp next to the bed is raised at almost the exact same angle as his fife! Both the interior and the painting combine playful mood with refined textiles for a not-too-serious elegance.
