  1. Ah, la belle inspiration! C'est trop fort!
    La designer était très influencée!
    Je connais pas ce tableau mais je comprends!
    Merci pour ce partage très instructif!
    Have a good day!

  2. My mind went to "Mondrian"! that is all I can say! Brilliant people all around....however, "Mondrian" popped into my head!

    wonderful post, as always....provocative......good grief! what a gift we have in the blogosphere! I am old.....you young people ; stop and think what an enormous gift this is!

    I have to force myself away from reading the amazing brilliant blogs.!

    And walk! and work! (actually the working part is easy! but there are brilliant blogs........so many!)

    YYIKES!!! Is there a silent treadmill I could be walking on while reading all the brilliant blogs? (I cannot abide noise) !


    Bravo! So great!

  3. christopher farr's work melts my soft mind everytime. fantastic!

  4. There are references to a number of things no doubt. Christopher Farr's rugs are a part of his Omega inspired collections, thus the reference to both Omega and Bloomsbury in this posting. I saw the dress and fell in love with it, and No I did not even think of buying it, but I immediately thought of the last image of Bloomsbury-that rug seemed to me to be the old and faded impression of that very dress pattern.I followed his lead on this one.
