Still life portraiture has a long a rich history and tradition. Among them are vanitas paintings of the 16th and 17th centuries that capture florals, food and other perishable items in varying states of decay to show the fragility and impermanence of life. When we came across these floral stills from Emily Blincoe we were reminded of this genre, though her art-form has taken the idea in a different direction. Instead of showing the deterioration of temporal materials, Blincoe has suspended the process in photography and created beautifully arranged compositions.
So simple and striking, we think they’re just magical! Imagine this as a photo-op backdrop or as a creative centerpiece idea? You could pair with a graphic linen like Brush Squares or Brush Rings and let the florals/foliage really pop.
Not to toot our own horn, but we love the versatility of linens and how they can shine as stand-alone statements or work as part of a cohesive design and really pull a look together. Weather your design revolves around the natural world or other inspiration, La Tavola Fine Linens has the perfect option to take your table from ordinary to extraordinary!
