An eye for color. This looks like an interesting book on colour, how to develop your sense of colour, showing how to build your own color index by "dissecting" a gorgeous selection of works used by master painters, graphic designers, fashion and furniture designers and craftsmen-all selected for their exceptional use of color.

As I was about to post about this book, I saw something quite remarkable on a blog I have been following, world market portraits blog. A spectacular yet economical decorative solution with colour pencils!
In the meantime, I received a newsletter which linked me somehow to Vogue Italia spring summer trends 2011 and I noticed not just honeysuckle but also green and yellow as leading colours. The trends are many, various and I am not a trends expert but I really enjoyed seeing a sparkling paillette trend ...reminiscent of glittery mosaic tiles.
The last marni and westwood garments remind me of this mosaic by artist Paolo Racagni.
