Simple, clean, beautiful colors.
That's how I like my clothes, my interiors and my art. Most of the time, anyway. I say that and then I will find something full of detail or highly amusing and change my mind in an instant!

Josef and Anni Albers were artistic adventurers who were both pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Josef Albers (1888-1976) was an influential teacher, writer, painter, and color theorist—now best known for the Homages to the Square he painted between 1950 and 1976 and for his innovative 1963 publication The Interaction of Color. Anni Albers (1899-1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer, and printmaker who inspired a reconsideration of fabrics as an art form, both in their functional roles and as wallhangings.

Don't you think it would be wonderfully fun to be artists living together? Or would there be too much artistic temperament? It certainly didn't work for Frida and Diego or Scott and Zelda! I hope it did for the Albers!
