Can't argue with that, but I didn't make it through the whole article... Somewhere a year or two ago I ran across a graphic display showing the cultural connotations attached with various colours in the different countries. It was pretty interesting!

Shelley - I wear a lot of black so the quote resonated with me. I happen to really enjoy the furnishings as well. It is interesting how perceptions of colour vary throughout the world.

Love the article and I read her first book in the late 80's. Her loft is the perfect mix of beautiful furniture, objects, textiles and books. You will always have something new to discover and admire. Heavenly!

Forgot to add that I'm wondering what it means to me that I avoid wearing black?

Love her flat as well SilkP, so beautiful. I think those who manage to avoid wearing a lot of black usually are very thoughtful about their clothing choices. Black is all too easy to select and it takes more planning and thought to embrace colour.
