As Inga Saffron, the architecture critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer said, “[The architect’s] gritty mix of decay and history - accessorised with a few exquisite decorative flourishes - is exactly what the fashion retailer was seeking for its unified corporate campus. Rarely has an architecture and landscape design so thoroughly embodied a company’s corporate identity and aesthetic sensibility.”
Giants balls of colorful yarn brilliantly highlight the ancient art form of crochet. I use the word, "ancient," because it seems like a lost art that, like an archaeological find, is gaining more popularity and focus, thanks to companies like Urban Outfitters, Anthropology, and others that are bringing it back!
I love balls of colorful yarn, a la carte, and apparently I am not the only one! Joyce Vance's cat Harry thinks the idea of decorating with balls of yarn is as good as it gets.
Notice how the balls are enhanced by the beautiful crochet table runner:
Next time you need color inspiration, go to a yarn shop and marvel at colors dyed in fiber, waiting to be twisted and woven into beautiful color relationships. Or, if you're like me, you just want the colors to stay the way they are, colorful piles of yarn that inspire you to go home and live in color!
Check out the blog "Hooked on Crochet" if you want to know more about this fun hobby! The blog color itself is distracting and child-like, but the information is "knitted together" in a fun voice and a heartfelt passion....this is a picture of one of the blogger's favorite stores.
