BEHIND THE BLUE

 
The Butterfly Effect

Bold. Cheeky. Fearless. Regal.

This is how I feel when I look at this blue, and the exact attitude I want to transmit into the work I do for my clients. Choosing a color is not an easy task, especially when my vision was so minimal with a bold accent. But this blue is not just a color - it represents art, creativity, abundance and adventure.

WHEN I LOOK AT BLUE, I SEE...

1. PANTHÈRE DE CARTIER

I first saw this watch in How to Spend It magazine while on a photoshoot in Sicily and immediately fell head over heels. I ripped it out of the magazine and put it on my vision board, which is a bit out of character for me as I prefer experiences to material things. Something about its sophisticated simplicity struck me, and that deep blue represents a bit of edge.

2. MATISSE, BLUE NUDE II 1952

On 6 June 2018, I broke my ankle in 3 different places and was told I would not be able to walk for months. The experience was both beautiful and brutal, as it forced me learn to release my emotions through art since I couldn’t run or do yoga. While in the wheelchair, I found inspiration from different artists who found a rebirth after an illness. Here’s the blue again, with Matisse who created his last masterpieces from paper cut outs.

3. GOOGLE DOCS

The Butterfly Effect

When I look at a blank page, I am filled with excitement and freedom to create. The blue Google Docs icon reminds me of the opportunities to express myself through creative writing and briefs for clients, and the “Share” button let’s me put it out into the world.

4. MAJORELLE GARDEN, MARRAKECH

January 2016 feels like lifetimes ago, but my visit to the Majorelle Garden feels like yesterday.

I remember walking through the insane chaos of Marrakech and finding an oasis at the peaceful Majorelle Garden.

It’s striking, even a bit overwhelming, and absolutely unforgettable.

5. FILICUDI

This tiny Aeolian Island off Sicily is strangely silent, but you feel as if Mother Nature is screaming at you to stop and appreciate the stunning blue Tyrrhenian Sea.

When I look at this blue, I can immediately picture the smiles of all the locals who made me feel like family after knowing them for only a few minutes.

An example of Sicilian hospitality at its finest.

So tell me, what’s your favorite color and what does it mean to you?
