A ROOM OF HER OWN
Artist Maia Bunge brings the enchantment of a 19th-century Belgian salon into vivid detail on this silk scarf created for Veranda.
FIND A CORNER, AND I START DRAWING.” In divine understatement, Argentinian illustrator Maia Bunge reveals the origins of this Empire-style salon captured in pen and ink (a commission by its owners, the Duquesne Watelet de la Vinelle family). A Parisian transplant, Bunge spent a week in Belgium, drawing among the rich furnishings of the 1702 townhouse. With added photography and historic research, her vision emerges as both documentary and idiosyncratic. It’s a delightful invitation to linger. regardelemonde.com
