(images: Old Wedgwood, 1898, New York Public Library)

It has been a while since I did an "inspiration" post. So, as I find my apartment at long last coming together (the contractor put in the last piece of molding yesterday!), I am searching for color. Having spent my entire adult life living in rentals with plain white walls, it is a joy to finally be able to pull paint-color chips. But overwhelming too! I so admire people who fearlessly use bold color. But my eye is drawn to something more subtle...and when you have only 502 square feet of space, a lot of color can be glaring. Looking through my folders, I came across these images, which I pilfered from the NYPL digital library (you can see more here). Wedgwood, of course. Love those grays and creams...with spots of soft blue, lime green, and mustard yellow. A perfect palette. Okay...now it's time to go pick up a paint brush.
