BRETT MICKAN

Brett Mickan Interior Design, Sydney

Felicia’s bold combination of colour and texture bursts off the canvas. This work doesn’t require any more vibrancy in the room to show to its best advantage. I would hang it in a room with bottle-green walls and charcoal-stained wood floors; a plush rug in a colour blend of taupe and acid yellow; a warm grey velvet sofa; and arm chairs in a dark green chenille. To contrast the femininity of the subject, I would include steel coffee and side tables in a matt grey powder coat. In order to keep the colour focus at eye level I would add a vintage Picasso-esque white plaster chandelier.

SUZANNE GORMAN

Studio Gorman Interior Design, Sydney

A joyous and uplifting painting, with fresh crisp colours and movement created through the arching stems. Pink Song is asking to be hung in a sunny reading conservatory where it can be enjoyed while savouring a cup of tea with friends. I imagine the room to be comfortable and bright, with an array of artfully mismatched textiles, layered on a cosy sofa with views to the garden.

KATHRYN ROBSON

Robson Rak Architecture & Interiors, Melbourne

Felicia’s study of flowers against a white-washed wall reminds me of a recent trip to Greece. I can imagine this work being translated into a large-scale mural on the outside of a building. It would be equally beautiful hung in a simple, feminine dressing room with soft linens and velvets to pick up on the pink tones in this painting.
