Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Pitchfork may be far behind us, but the country is still in the thick of music festival season with events like Lollapalooza and Riot Fest looming on the horizon. But for all that’s good about a music fest (sunshine, bands, body paint), there are some things that are equally bad (crowds, expensive tickets, body paint). If it’s a boho-chic soiree you crave, why not skip the massive bathroom lines and selfie-snappers and bring the look and feel of a fest indoors—specifically to your dining-room table?
After a painstaking restoration removed decades of yellowed varnish, Gustave Caillebotte’s “Paris Street; Rainy Day” was at last re-hung in the Art Institute of Chicago this past May. Even though the restoration uncovered brighter tones within the painting, the muted color scheme still stands out in a room filled with color-saturated works by Renoir and Monet. The next time it rains, invite friends to cozy up around a table set with pieces inspired by Caillebotte’s masterpiece.
