i’ve always wanted to live in castlesThe mural in your bedroom is another Mise-en-scène! Who made it and what was the inspiration behind it?
with paintings on the walls.
The idea was that there would be animals and nature, and since it’s a bedroom it had to be something serene, that could feel embracing and soothing. I referenced Hilma af Klint’s colour universe and all that is anthroposophical. After that she just did her thing and found flowers and animals from old cave paintings, the monkey is a common cave drawing dating a thousand years back, so none of the elements are random, but the colours were all her choosing.
Must be wonderful to have such creative trust in someone!
