Color Blocking at Home

Color blocking has been a trend of the runways for the past few seasons so why not translate the trend into beautiful art for your home?  I've had the minimal color-block paintings of Günther Förg on my mind for quite some time.  Specifically, since they graced the cover of the December 2006 issue of Elle Décor. This is an art project that can easily be replicated at home using craft paper or sheets of Coloraid.  I have 300 Coloraid swatches that have been sitting in my office since I took a color theory class in school.  This weekend I'm planning on taking note from Washington DC designer, David Mitchell, and do my own DIY version of Günther's art.  Since I rent I'm trying my hardest to avoid painting the walls so think this strong and simple art arrangement will add the perfect splash of color to my white walls!

What are your plans for the weekend?
