Color looms large in March, and with the beginning of spring, the season of budding hues, came rich images and stories on the blogosphere. The colors of note were certainly hot: Neon seemed to be having a moment in the world of interiors. From the scorching pinks highlighted by the The Style Files, to the electric accents in kitchens we spotlighted on Remodelista, bold hues were married with more classic environments. It seems black and white were taking a back seat in the fashion world as well, as Refinery29 reported on ways to mix florescent into one's wardrobe and we noted siren red on the legs of the "color courageous." Indeed, color prevails in the art world. The Daily Imprint highlighted the emerging Australian artist James Ettelson, who incorporates rich pigments into his work in a style that "combines traditional Aboriginal painting techniques with pop art." Moco Loco paid homage to the textual compositions by Swedish artist Matthias Van Arkel, describing one of his turquoise pieces of dyed platinum and silicon rubber to be so vibrant that it "begs to be touched." It seemed the images of Italianphotographer Helenio Barbetta had a similar positive effect on viewers, as Desire to Inspire wrote that his shots of interiors and exteriors highlight "everything demanding attention."
While various voices in the design, style and art worlds blogged about their true colors, the gastronomical side of the web was also bursting with hue inspiration. On the cusp of the spring produce bounty, food bloggers were creative with what was still in season: After a trip to Morocco, Heidi Swanson created a recipe for bright yellow Ginger Grapefruit Curd for her blog 101 Cookbooks, while the Smitten Kitten incorporated root vegetables into breakfast for Carrot Cake Pancakes. For the adventurous epicurean looking for an eclectic ambience, Remodelista highlighted a zeitgeist café and an i-Hop-turned-hip-Korean-Fusion restaurant--two dining spots that work color into their décor in unique and adventurous ways.
