The Farolito Walk, joined by tourists, Santa Feans with dogs, children and anyone with a warm holiday feeling, is an excellent reason to come to Santa Fe for the holidays. This walk on Christmas Eve 2011 on Canyon Road got started in the late 1970s. Small bonfires called luminarias and votive candles in paper bags, called farolitos light the walkways, changing the colors from day to night. The holiday colors of red and green on cobalt blue doors were reflected in the just fallen snow. The farnlitos highlight the aesthetically simple holiday decorations and the windows of art galleries and houses on Canyon Road.

I am over the moon when I see colors that sing to me. This happens very frequently when I see color combinations that turn me on. Some are part of the landscape like this wonderful blue pick-up truck that is out at Ice’s Farm & Teahouse in Alcaide, NM. What a treat! Just take a look at these fantastic serape and Rio Grande weavings and Gregory Lomayesva’s Hopi Kachina dolls.
Rio Grande weaving started after 1540 when Churro sheep came to NM with Coronado’s expedition. Serapes are long shawls that are brightly colored with fringes and are worn in Mexico by men.
Gregory Lomayesva is an American artist with Hopi Indian roots who uses his imagination and amazing sense of color to recreate traditional shapes of Kachina dolls. The Hopi believe that the spirits (Kachinas) come down to the villages to dance and sing and give gifts to children, bring rain and are known to be deities.
Here’s a reason to wish for Fall to be here!
Check out the Missoni for Target Lookbook and be sure to mark you calendars as these pieces promise to fly out the store. I own a pair of Vintage Missoni knit pants which are lovely and am so looking forward to add to this collection.
Mostly loving all of the accessories. It’s great time to also think think of holiday gifts for your fashionista friends and family.

In February 2011, I went on a color-finding trip to Japan looking for new contemporary art and architecture. Of course I had to go to Naoshima, an island in the Inland Sea of Japan. Located in the cultural heart of historic downtown Naoshima near temples and shrines, Minanidera is a new structure created by architect Tadao Ando to house the work of color lighting artist, James Turrell. Ando also built the new Chichu Museum and Turrell has several pieces that reside in the museum near some of Monet’s exquisite Water Lilies. Both structures become more than buildings, they house the space and filtered colored light that inhabits them inside and outside. You enter Turrell’s spaces in total blindness and feel around until your eyes become used to the almost complete darkness and thin cool color mist of light. It is at once a spiritual and an unsettling experience. One is mesmerized by the depth of the heavenly space that is totally created by colored light and air. Dan Flavin, Pieter Vermeersch, Olafur Eliasson are some of the artists who have worked in colored light.

Color borrowed from fashion color trends have really penetrated interiors, furniture and accessories for both residential and contract. This IFCC, the tradeshow held once a year in May at the Jacob Javits’ Center, is the best example of any trade exhibition in New York and verifies this statement.
It’s a Fun & Color-filled Lifestyle for 2011-12.
Frank Gehry’s “Ultracube” pieces for Heller are now hyper-colored and made out of rotation molded polymer for indoors and out. Just by changing to trendy colors in traditionally styled outdoor chairs, the French company Fermob has created a unique multiple color statement. Li-Rong Liao from Pratt Institute folded a cotton candy pink colored felted material into a glass topped table. Aimee Wilder, a New York graphic designer created a fun-filled colored collection of wallpapers in hues of red and pink. LZF a company owned by a designing married team from Spain were represented by Global Lighting that are stars of lighting that work in high contrast colors in natural materials. Their wooden designs look like cut and molded papers that are worthy of museum collections.
