Mother Nature…Modernist

January 19, 2013

 A  fallen tree,  a single river rock worn  smooth by the passage of time and rushing water, both modern minimalist inspiration found in nature.  A quick walk through the yard or a relaxed meander through the woods or shore can ignite a creative spark that can’t be found sitting at the desk. Muted tones to bright colorations that only she can produce…materials, form and texture that seem impossible get those creative juices flowing. Is it your garden or your interior you need to rework? A room in your garden or a room in your home can both benefit from a leisurely stroll with both eyes wide open. Leave your iPhone behind, open the door, take a deep breath and head out. This exercise is not only simplequietmodern…it’s free. You might be surpised where it takes you.Copy of wntrAM3fCopy of yrnknll3FCopy (2) of log3FCopy of knitcapFJaehyo_lee

Well…it ain’t beige

Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year…Tangerine Tango. If a dose of this injected into your neutral interior doesn’t shake things up, well…it’s time to start checking pulses. Don’t know where to start?  Should the tangy Womb chair and ottoman ( Eero Saarinen 1948)at make too much of a statement then maybe a Tangerine Tango Journal is just the ticket. Me, I’ll take one of each please.
