Color of the week : Malachite

Inspired by the first breaths of spring and the youthful energy of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s oeuvre, Amy has taken to the canvas to work out some ideas on color, texture, and form.  The color story of this canvas is malachite, a weathered copper that vacillates from orange copper to bright green.

We’re swooning over this beautiful book by Ashley Hicks, about his father, David Hicks, the incredibly influential interior designer from the 1960′s.
