Eye-catching, for sure! Wonderful complex eod, great color (as always:), light and comp - love the zig-zag edges of the staircase railings - that's so cool! - and the very slight shadows on the walls picking up the form and design...course, the half-moon of the blue, is the stunning topper...whew, just the perfect pov! WTG, Phyllis.... :)
