The artist looks like Tang Mei Wen's work. Cutter and Cutter in St.Augustine, Florida.. ask for Patricia. They handle Tang'swork!!!!! The prices range from $6,000-$50,000.

The contrast looks great ! What type of product was used to create the black background? Texture? Color of paint?

Here's an example of how we've used bookshelves and a fireplace together in one space, with a similar color scheme to what you've described.

If my walls are SW macadamia, can I just paint that on the back? The bookshelves are already the trim color (off white) and I just wanted them to pop but the red brick is an issue. I am hoping the macadamia wall paint harmonizes with the red brick. I considered SW Kilim that is soo popular, but it looked too pink. Thank you for your advice! It is an entire house paint job and I need to be sure I pick best paint colors.

It would really help if you knew the name of the artist of this painting, it's so beautiful that I would love to have one as well. Is there any way that you can find out and get back to me.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beth Woodson and Kristy Woodson Harvey added this to Get More Bang From Your Bookcase
A bookcase nook can be the perfect place to display a special work of art. A portrait, a painting or a favorite photograph can add a personal touch to what can be the focal point of the room. A bookcase is also a wonderful place for what can often be the necessary evil of décor: the TV. Surrounded by molding, arches and books, a TV would blend in nicely.
Jessica McClendon added this to Learn When to Splurge for True Design Happiness
Sure, dark wood might require a daily swipe with the Swiffer, but if looking at those floors makes your happy, you won't mind the extra effort that goes into the upkeep.
