the iconoclast

Heidi says that I called her “a color rebel” when we first met, and I was thrilled that she was up for using strong color and pattern. Her enthusiastic approach to life is evident in her collections of bold clothes, jewelry and posters. That spirit is now reflected in her home, which is so unlike any other.

In the bathroom, indigo and white patterns combine with bronze fixtures. The leaf motif above the wall tile is hand-painted by one of my favorite artisans.

In the living room – picking up the indigo note and adding teal and grey – we did a Readymade Decorating™ revamp: new couches, lamps, pillows, drapes and carpet, a coffee table donated by a friend, and a new paint job that uses indigo to accent the back of the existing bookcase.
