Chicago-based artist, textile designer and curator Maya-Camille Broussard has a problem: Getting people who are in need of her interior design services to realize that the art they buy doesn’t need to match the furniture. Broussard discovered this unique challenge when a young couple decided not to purchase a painting from her gallery because it didn’t match their sofa.
Recognizing an opportunity to approach interior design in a new and innovative way, Broussard set about creating The MCB Project, a weekly web series where Broussard decorates an interior space to specifically complement a new piece of fine art.
“Clients often pass up a great piece of art simply because it does not match their furniture,” says Broussard. “I want to help viewers understand that they do not have to give up on a piece just because it doesn’t match their current décor.”
