SIA: Portrait of Comtesse d’Haussonville

Welcome to another week of SIA! Our inspiration this week is “Portrait of Comtess d’Haussonville” by French Neoclassical artist Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, and we have a lot of good stuff, so let’s get started!

First up, Jodie from Jodie’s Touch of Style sends in a photo of her mother, Charlotte, in a lovely blue dress and a bracelet to provide a pop of red:

Next is my co-host Kim, who took inspiration from the countess’s dress and her ivory skin:

My other co-host, Daenel, also found inspiration from the muted blue and gray tones of the painting, as she doesn’t wear those colors often:

Up next is Mike, who went with the texture of the countess’s dress rather than the color, and the buttons on his shirt also match the intricate details of the jewelry and the mirror:

Long time SIA participant, Kezzie, is back with a lovely blue top, red skirt, and a red flower brooch:

Leslie also chose a blue dress, but she accessorized with neutral rather than going for a pop of color:

And finally, here’s me:

It’s been such a fun SIA challenge! Big thanks to everyone who participated, and remember to check back next week for the next challenge, courtesy of Daenel!

    A little late getting over here to check out all the interpretations but group hug!! We all blew this challenge out of the water! So fun to see how we almost all picked up on the blue, and added a bit of red. My red wasn’t visible in the photo I shared with you but I had a burgundy purse draped over one shoulder and out of view. A round of applause to all.

  4. […] challenge of the entire year, not just because I love the inspiration piece (Ingres’s “Portrait of Comtesse d’Haussonville“) but also because everybody did such a good […]
