Without the vibrancy of this hanging, this garden's white wall would be serviceable, but boring. I love the colors - especially the way the chartreuse-yellow is picked up in the accent pillow - and hte way the slight curves echo the plants in the surrounding garden.
This piece is so cool because it's nearly hidden - it's tucked low amidst plants and lighting in the garden. Plus, to me, the shadowy designs on the fabric are reminiscent of sailboats - one of my favorite images.
This blue and gray feature is perfectly at home next to an outdoor water feature, but wouldn't it also be interesting hanging in a powder room? I love its verticality - it draws the eye upward and could really spice up a tiny room with high ceilings.
Not all of Sommers' work is abstract - this modern depiction of the traditional pitchfork is so much fun. No staid American Gothic here - it's completely fresh, especially with the accompanying chairs. Plus, what a great way to use vertical space.
This combination of abstract and representational panels adds interest to the yard - and color. I love the bright reds next to the cool greens and grays.
These narrow, tall panels (that remind me a lot of stained glass) give this Parisian courtyard a sense of formality and pulled together style. I love how the panel colors pull in the shades of the furniture and the lit interior rooms.
This panel's subtle, clean pattern almost looks like simple shadows - until you look closer. Plus, it's not just for show. This panel hides unsightly electrical outlets and a run-down wall - double duty.
This is probably my favorite of all of Sommers' work. The Pucci-like design is fun and cool and I love the greens and blues - perfect to punch up a simple garden. I really like how the whole panel works with the yard architecture and the simple white furniture, too. It's a spot that's perfect for late afternoon cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
