BIRDS OF A FEATHER...

I'm like a BOWER BIRD when it comes to to blue and Klein Blue has got to be an all time favorite.
Shopping in Bangkok last week I was stopped in my tracks by the backdrop a very simple window display by the fashion brand NAUTICA. 
Don'tcha just love the Klein Blue shutters.
FYI: International Klein Blue (IKB) is a deep blue hue first mixed by the 
French artist Yves Klein
IKB's visual impact comes from its heavy reliance on Ultramarine
International Klein Blue is outside the gamut of computer displays, and can therefore cannot be portrayed on web pages.
 "Blue Monochrome"

Yves Klein (French, 1928-1962)

 

THE BOWER BIRD

Ever since I read about this bird, it has been one of my favorites - the way it makes a home, and decorates it with colorful and shiny things, it was even described as crushing a berry and painting the twigs it has used to make its home.
A bird that understands the importance of interior decorating, is a bird after my own heart. Not only that, but they are very perfectionist about it - if something gets moved (or even stolen by another jealous bower bird, who covets the bits of blue - 
it gets put back right where it was taken from!)

SIG BERGAMIN - BRAZIL

It will come as no suprise that Brazilian decorator SIG BERGAMIN is one of my all-time favorites
A frequent visitor to Bali - his first book "SIG" is a well-worn & dog-eared favorite on my shelves.

Elle Decor has featured his beach house retreat in Trancoso ( Bahai SA ) on the cover of it's April issue. 
Simon Upton's photo's are spectacular and will be well blogged.
Thought you might be interested in seeing additional pics / angles of the interior that were not used by Elle Decor
