Where have HUE been?

My copy of the Kelly Wearstler book "HUE" arrived a little while ago, and it does not disappoint! I have already devoured it and am looking forward to having some more time to savour each and every drool worthy image. It's quite a departure from her past two publications. While there is still plenty of the Wearstler signature saturated colour...there are also plenty of spaces that are decorated in a more easily digested sea of neutrals. Her new home is simply stunning, and is so...well, for want of a better word, eclectic. It's definitely more modern than her previous residence, and actually looks quite European to me in the way that she has mixed sculptural pieces, bold art and lots of disparate elements against the classical architectural backdrop. I wonder how long it will take for her to be bored of it and move on? If nothing else, we can all live vicariously through her. I only hope that the next book doesn't take so long to be published...I feel like I've been waiting on this one for years! Now....go get yourself a copy!

i can never look at the cover without remembering how it was changed! did you ever see the original one? this one is so different! But I do think I like it better even though she looks like a pre-teen playing dress up.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Ha! That's so funny Joni - she does look a bit like that! A bit awkward looking too...but yes I did see the original cover and I think I like this one better. Hope you have a great weekend too!
