Color Inspiration: Vera Neumann

Vera Neumann has been covered ad nauseum on the blog circuit, and while my personal taste leans toward simple and neutral, I still love her designs and could not resist making a collage and writing up a post.

The sheer number of prints, colors, patters, and items designed over the span of her career is remarkable, and her eye for color was impeccable. I love the way her designs are at the same time loose yet graphic, retro yet modern. Enjoy the eye candy!

  3. It was a grey and cloudy day here in Minneapolis, so your colorful post was much appreciated...and thank you for featuring the little Geisha girls from the Vera tray I have listed!

  4. Thank you so much, Claire, for adding one of my Vera scarves to your beautiful collection!

    I love your selections and collage of Vera items... one can never get enough Vera! I too am always amazed when I hardly ever see a repeated pattern! xox
