new color week!

now onto our 2nd week of color! when we started this blog, the sky was grey, there was snow on the ground, the river was frozen and everyone on the streets of Boston were wearing black and grey coats. This week, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, it's supposed to be in the 90's tomorrow, time to get in our spring and summer clothes! Which means it's the perfect opportunity to do a second week of colorful outfits. join us and send us a photo of your colorful spring outfit!

here are Monday's outfits! even eloise is in color!

range of colors

my lovely friends louise works for a Swedish textile company .ludvig svensson. When she needs inspiration she sneaks into their design studio. that's where she found all these colors that inspired her. tack louise!!

atmosphere of celebration

i went to see matthias sauerbruch (a principal of sauerbruch hutton architects) lecture the other night, and was so pleased to hear him address COLOR! i've admired this firm for quite a while, in part because they so often clad their buildings in beautiful, colorful, performative skins.

it made me SO happy when he likened building skins to clothing - and said that when buildings have colorful skins, or people wear colorful clothing, it not only lifts the mood of the wearer, but creates an "atmosphere of celebration" for everyone nearby. well said, mr. sauerbruch!

in that spirit, anna and i are going to embark on another week of colorful outfits - posted every day. hopefully we'll make you feel more celebratory ... of course happily aided by the newly GORGEOUS weather!

we went on a walk with eloise the other day and found all these colorful homes in our neighborhood.

easter eggs

I am so behind with this post. but even if easter is already over I have to share these beautiful blown eggs that annis, katie and I made for easter. lovely eloise helped out too, by keeping us company, and she was so cute in her scarf.
