Color Play

Here's a tiny peek inside a book we'll be exploring soon: Oberto Gili's Home Sweet Home: Sumptuous and Bohemian Interiors. Up top, you're looking at the photographer's 1996 shot of paint-stained brushes arranged by color in Ellsworth Kelly's Spencertown, New York studio. (If you're in Atlanta, check out this Kelly at the High.)

[Photos my own unless noted otherwise.]

This afternoon I was out in the field to see for myself if Nomad had arrived at a local Anthro. Along the way, I stumbled upon the biggest bouquet of functional colored pencils I've ever seen -- big meaning the pencils themselves were huge.   

Stacked below a small display of Sibella Court's hardware in the Lenox store, I spied a copy of her third edition so I nabbed a copy for myself. More on that to come.

Love all of the paint brushes... the bristle texture or color palatte just makes the inner experimenter want to come out and play even though I know it'll turn into a hodgepodge mess!

J. Covington,

Great point about the texture. I think it's almost as much a part of the allure as the color.

We have always loved they interplay of colors and textures of simple things, like paint brushes, pencils, stones and leaves. Great photos and observations. Bob
