After My Own Heart.


French designer and illustrator, Tom Henni, via design work life.

As you are an observant bunch, I don't need to proclaim by love for the combination of turquoise and red (even though I just did). I keep thinking that it's time to update by masthead, but I do think it's quite lovely and it seems that I'm not the only one with an affinity for the aqua and ruby pairing. And yes, if all my friends jumped off a bridge, I would follow.

Oy, just realized I owe you all an update on Chris' Art in Storefronts project. You can check out all the images here. It's been an amazing experience. He's never done a piece that's elicited such a positive response. The residents that frequent that strip of street have embraced it and vowed to protect it. It is not only another installation in the neighborhood, it is their installation.

  4. I am a bit obsessed with that color combo actually such that I spent several hours making a Flickr gallery for it.

    It's also dominating one room of my house. It is nice to know I'm not the only fan out there. :)

    A new reader here, love your blog.
