Creating Color: Greens & Blues

This bright, green and blue kitchen is really energetic and beautiful. They pair their vibrant greens with equally bright shades of blue – and keep it all evenly composed by using different shades of the same color. The rest of the kitchen is neutral – a light, tan wood floor paired with a blue-toned grey wall. My favorite touch is the suspended collection of various, brightly colored kitchen utensils. Not to mention, those chrome-tipped light bulbs are to die for, if you’re a fan of what I call the ‘romanticized loft aesthetic’.

Don’t fear color!

Art Education: Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans – Oh my!

We’re trekking through time at a quick pace! Last week we covered (MORE) Greek, Etruscan, and Republican Roman art. It’s a toss up between black-figure Greek painted vases and Republican Roman wall paintings as to which I like more.
For example, the Greek black-figure painted vases were really intricate and stunning, like this one of Achilles and Ajax by Exekias:

But the Republican Roman wall paintings were really cool, too. Romans were cool in general, though. They had indoor plumbing and roads and gladiators. And also, four different styles of wall painting. At the Villa of the Mysteries (cool name, too) ‘architectural’ wall painting was used to make the rooms look they connected to other rooms – making the wall an ~illusion~ – see:
