Ode to Color – Lori Weitzner

Posted on Mon, 9 Jan 2017 by midcenturyjo

I was sent the newly launched book Ode to Color: The Ten Essential Palettes for Living and Design by textile designer Lori Weitzner before Christmas and didn’t get a chance to peruse it, much less prepare this post until now. I am sorry it took me so long because this book is delicious – a perfect addition to the stack on your coffee table. This book is truly a journey into the world of colour, and takes an in-depth look at the ten essential “color worlds”. Lori shares with us the connections to color on a psychological and spiritual level. “What connects them in a level of engagement: they speak to the senses on an emotional level, influencing our moods and jogging memory, and simply speaking to who we are, functioning as a form of self-expression.” The photos that accompany her thoughts are beautiful examples that really demonstrate the impact color has on our lives. It is truly a lovely book, from HarperCollins Publishers. You can ger yourself a copy here
