Yves Klein Blue
I've maintained for quite a while that I don't like royal blue. It just always seemed like a gauche, crass kind of color. How can a person have such strong feelings towards a color? Strange I know, but I have a lot of opinions on this subject.
As it happens, I've changed my mind and I am trying to think how I am now a great lover of this aquatic hue. I have a client who had a clear blue sweater and I would always wonder how I liked this sweater on her when it is in a color that irks me. Then the same client has a blue chair that I had to work into a room. Yikes! An all-grey room was going to be ruined by the additiion of a blue chair but instead of hating it, I loved it. It was an unexpected addition for me. Thanks to Kirsten, I am now in the midst of designing a bedroom in royal blue...I mean the entire room is royal blue. I even tried to push a entire living room in this color on her but we wisely reverted back to simple grey which I think was a good move.
Sorry, royal blue, for all the hating. I'm looking forward to lots of experimentation with you.
