This large bold work would add depth and movement to any interior within which it might hang. I would balance the dark tones by incorporating blocks of dark colour within the space. In a family room, place a large curved sofa in navy velvet and armchairs in a cobalt blue; sandstone coloured walls and throw cushions to add warmth, all placed on a plush Kelly green cut pile rug.

Kate Pittas has depicted flower like forms using a deep colour palette paired with a light one to emphasise contrast. This work evokes intrigue and would be a great piece for a living room that has sheer white curtains that puddle softly against a herringbone oak floor and linen furniture punctuated with soft grass green velvet cushions.

There is a sense of abundance and joy in this painting, whilst having a strength and colouring that is a wonderful riff on more traditional and contemporary floral works. The thickly applied paint and broad brushstrokes create movement and energy. Coupled with the light to dark palette, the work conveys strength and beauty in equal measure. There is a huge range of options for placement with this piece – bedroom, living, hall, dining. This is a painting which would always find a home. I would love to see it hanging on clean white walls with black floorboards for contrast and drama.
