A Closer Look: Giorgio Morandi

What better place to look for color inspiration than a master Painter?  And who better than Giorgio Morandi (1890-1964), an Italian painter who specialized in still life?

After 1922 he developed the signature style he would become known for, focusing on subtle gradations of hue, tone, and objects arranged in a unifying atmospheric haze.

His beautiful paintings, though created decades ago, are surprisingly fresh. In fact, Morandi’s color palettes seem surprisingly contemporary.

Take a look: they might be the perfect inspiration for your next design project.  Can you imagine a room painted in these gorgeous tones?
