Last week I went to Detroit for work and popped in at the Detroit Institute of Arts to view the Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo special exhibit. Rivera's murals at the DIA are renowned and a great example of "bigger is better" art. For more can't miss places to visit, see this insider's guide to Detroit.
I was asked for a recommendation on paint colors and suggested this neutral palette of greys and blues. My paint preference is to use colors that work well together, limiting the palette to just a few choices.
In answering a question about Michigan's mid-century modern fan base, I discovered that Michigan had an important role in developing this design style.
Last week I bumped into the realtor who sold our house. As we were chatting, she mentioned that the previous owner's late husband had been quite a wonderful swimmer. He died unexpectedly in the same year as my grandpa; had he lived I imagine he might have had a pool installed in our backyard.

I've been working on some updates in our dining area, including this brushstroke art.
I can't wait to share the rest with you! What's new where you are?
