This floral bouquet is the type of somptuous ones that we find in the french historical castles and houses. For me, this kind of bouquet symbolize an aesthetic quality of the french elegance. It comes from old historical nobility in Europe. It shows history still visible, for instance, in all these numerous castles existing in the Loire valley, in my country : France.
Muted colors are the exact opposite of vibrant tones : matte aspect, discretion, depth. They give a special harmony and elegant simplicity to the soothing mood of this floral painting. Desaturated colors and pastel tones perfectly fit to a discreet, soft and elegant ambiance : the "french chic". Touch of romantism are given by dark and desaturated pastels tones. Matte, depth, discreet, neutral colors give soft contemporary feeeling of the past : timeless style.
