It was color that inspired me at the flea market today—especially turquoise and red. It's a memorable combination. So was the fuscia Dior dress with the striking Fred Leighton turquoise jewelry that Cameron Diaz wore to The Met's Costume Institute Gala in 2007. And, memorable is the color of this dressing room from my large file of dog-eared pages {House Beautiful 2001}. Picasso said, "Colors, like features... follow the changes of the emotions." What colors inspired you today?
