Color: Inspired and Applied

Whenever I find something beautiful I keep it near me, even when it’s the box from a new candle. I  bought a home candle from Frederic Malle’s Madison Avenue Store and loved the box. I liked the graphics the pale gray, white, black and spot of red; small but present. I kept it on my desk just because I liked the way it made me feel when I looked at it. I started noticing the color combination everywhere. I had already torn out inspirations sheets from a  Neiman Marcus ad. I saw the combination of color on Jean Georges website when looking for dinner options, on the cover of  Jeffrey Bilhuber’s book Defining Luxury,  for many movie promotions including Roman Polanski’s new film The Ghost Writer, and  I noticed Oprah was using it on her set.

So when my conservative clients asked for something still conservative but with a slight edge…the light bulb went off and with lots of discussion here is how it was applied.
