sacred space

This cosy attic space is a riot of contrasting colour and eclectic styles. A row of softly lit Chinese lanterns shed a warm glow onto a pile of bright African print cushions and colourful woven baskets. The Chinese inspired red and gold stencilled wall is an unexpected, but beautiful background to a serene Madonna ‘Modern Mosaic’ painting by Helen’s partner, Chips (Michael Chippendale). Based on regular grids of intricately painted dots, apparently abstract in close up, they form spectacular portraits when viewed from a distance.
