Questroyal Fine Art is pleased to announce that six of its paintings have been chosen for inclusion in the 2011 Architectural Digest greenroom at the Oscars! Celebrated designer Michael S. Smith, whose credits include the 2002 and 2004 “AD 100” award, and 2003 “Designer of the Year” award by Elle Décor, composed the room using classic furnishings from his personal line with Baker Furniture. Smith handpicked six paintings from the Questroyal collection to compliment his winning design, one of which is featured in a special rendering of the finished room below.

Smith said of his involvement: “Having lived in California my whole life, I have always been thrilled by the movies, and the design and architecture that surround them. I am always inspired by film. It is an honor to participate in the most prestigious of all Hollywood events.” Questroyal owner, Louis M. Salerno, echoed Smith’s sentiments stating: “I am delighted that Architectural Digest invited Questroyal to be a part of this year’s Oscars greenroom. My staff and I are excited to loan our best Impressionist and Modern masterpieces to this classic event and honored to work with such an esteemed and talented designer.”

Paintings will be on view at Questroyal Fine Art starting March 10, 2011.

    Congratulations to Questroyal, Mr. Salerno and Staff. It is easy to see why the “Quest” is moving along with prestigious companions as the art is just too outstanding not to be awarded the attention of all true lovers of beauty. Way to go!!!
