angela adams and sherwood hamill's extraordinary work are seen above.
they share a complimentary aesthtic and beautiful showroom & storefront in downtown portland. angelas bags, rugs, housewares, cards, textiles - (and more) and sherwoods furniture are combined and shown together. the store always has fun, unexpected window displays.
angela has always had an adventurous, amazing sense of color and i was immediately drawn to her painted wood pieces on the walls. ( see above)
i am reminded that in the dead of winter that adding some color to ones life is a good thing and goes a long way.
either in the home with flowers ( i have several bouquets of daffodils arranged around the house now) or painted walls or with your fashion. i, sadly, can't get away from black & white & cream in this dept but hugely admire designers like trina turk, jcrew cynthia rowleys colorblocked wetsuit - (gorgeous) and so many others that use color color color.
the dutch are great at incorporating color into everything. see my post kleur
up next i think - YELLOW.
