If you didn’t get to High Point this year, don’t worry because I think I have you covered. I took enough pictures to fill up the film storage room at the Cinematheque Francaise in Paris. Unfortunately, I can’t show you all of them, so I came up with a carefully curated list of my favorites. No small feat and time-consuming, but so worth it. One trend that consistently reared it’s beautifully coiffed “design head” was color-it was everywhere. From complex pink and celadon pairings to eruptions of bright & bold hues that seemed to have been plucked off the streets of the Mardi Gras. Either way, it was a welcome change from the monochromatic neutral palettes that have been
haunting us so”du jour” for far too long.
I came back from High Point with a new appreciation for bold color, which has me craving change at Casa B.. A change that is going to take me down to the Decorative Art Center to pick out color packed fabrics for pillows and drapery, and maybe I’ll even recover a chair (or two). I’m looking forward to breathing much needed life back into some of our rooms with bold & bright hues. I’m sure your wondering how a color challenged Mr.B feels about the change? Well, when he walks into our newly refreshed interior, I’ll be sure and let you know.
After all, what’s a world without color?
