I am a little on the fence about this armoire because in the wrong interior, it could be a disaster. In a very minimal interior, I could see this working brilliantly. Perhaps in a hallway or in an all white master bedroom.
The graffiti on the cabinet is actually digital images of love notes visitors have left on the walls of Juliet’s (as in Romeo and Juliet) house in Verona, Italy.
Verona and Romeo and Juliet have been inspired by Anna’s visits to Juliet’s house in Verona, Italy. She is totally captivated by the graffiti covering the walls at the archway entrance, all of it being declarations of love by visiting lovers, of all ages, from all over the world. The colours, and the messages create completely unique images.
Anna devised a process to replicate the walls on furniture, by taking a series of digital images, which she then transposed onto her carefully prepared period pieces. Because messages are constantly being added to the walls, Anna’s design for her Verona furniture is unique to a particular moment in time, and gives each piece its own individual artwork and identity.
