Am I blue?

Yves Klein
Table, 1961

Yves Klein
The Earth is Blue, 1959

Yves Klein
Victoire de Samothrace, 1962

Evidently, according to The New York Times, the next big colour trend for 2008 will be blue. I wish someone had told me before I had ordered those eighteen meters of indigo linen for the dining room curtains (plaster pink walls, you see).

Such a stunning color. Majorelle blue. It is mesmerizing.

HOBC - I can't wait to see it - even saying "eighteen meters of indigo" sounds wonderful.

We love Yves Klein and commissioned Elizabeth Paige Smith to make a console table filled with 'Yves Klein' Blue pigment...part of her Blow series of work which I believe was inspired by the famous Klein table...Before EPS shipped it to us she used it in a feature she worked on titled the house of tomorrow for the November issue of Interior Design!'s can be seen on page 280.

I love dropping by HOBC...I always learn something new or end up looking at something familiar in a new way!
