Now, for the colors. Although I certainly enjoy the colors of nature, sometimes I think I enjoy what these colors inspire in design and creation even more than the nature itself. Montreal is tons of fun in that its citizens all seem to enjoy color, and so the city is a myriad of bright facades. I love colorful homes, bikes, painting, and design jobs. Has anyone ever heard of Kate Lewis? I was visiting a really fun Australian designer's blog called Absolutely Beautiful Things, and came across a woman who paints colorful interiors. I just bought a new (huge) canvas and I've decided to paint something similar. Here is a photo of one of her paintings, and of the interior I am going to tackle, hopefully starting this weekend. There are also a few photos of mine of the wonderful color in Montreal.
Happy long weekend to those of you in Canada, and don't forget to check out the vintage clothing I have for sale this week in my last post!
