A Year Of “Color Crush” With “House Appeal”

JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH & APRIL
MAY, JUNE, JULY & AUGUST
SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER & DECEMBER

The year 2012 in color. A compilation of those colors that inspired me, month by month. A “Color Crush” shared…

Color (or Colour) is described as “the visual perceptual property corresponding to the categories called red, blue, yellow, green and others”. Color is said to be derived from the spectrum of light that interacts in the eye’s light receptors. In addition, “The categories of color and the physical specifications of color are associated with objects, materials and light sources based on their physical properties, such as light absorption, reflection, or emission spectra”. Interesting, indeed.

That said, a crush is a relationship that is similar to love, except that the person with the crush usually keeps it silent. Alas, I have shared my color crush, month by month, over the last year. Although a crush is considered short term, the color crushes that I have gathered and the inspirations I have taken from them will remain (to me) foundational colors of lasting appeal in objects, furniture, accessories and elements for years to come. Yet, there is always change and new color crushes are always arising. It is an ongoing evolution, indeed.

Cheers to being inspired by color in the New Year!
