The Red Velvet Tablecloth

The one detail in this super-cozy room that stood out in my imagination enough to name the painting after it is the red velvet tablecloth. The way it has been placed so regally on the small round table makes you think it must be a priceless antique carried through many a generation, treasured by its protective owners, and admired - not without a degree of envy - by guests and passersby. You can almost hear the wealthy owner exclaiming, "But of course, it is made of my great-great-grandmother's finest velvet. Isn't it amazing how it seems to hold the room together?"
