#pantoneposts by Lucia Litman
Have you ever taken a color acuity test online? I have, and they're much harder than you would think. We all see color a little differently from each other, which I guess explains why I occasionally see people mixing shades that honestly make me a little nauseous, but doesn't seem to impact them at all. Color is a really interesting area to explore, shaped by personal perception, senses, and preference.
With that being said, there is also a science to color, and a standard that is set for thousands of hues that help keep everything in order. Pantone is the industry leader in developing and documenting these guidelines, setting trends and helping manufacturers to maintain a certain standard.
Still following me? Then check out #PantonePosts, a series of photographs taken by Lucia Litman that match food with a dedicated Pantone shade. From toasted bagels to bananas in varying stages of ripeness, she finds the perfectly satisfactory way to document each item as a color. If you're a fan of Things Organized Neatly and pictures that are Oddly Satisfying, I'd recommend checking her out.
I had to do a triple take when I read that Maria Svarbova's work Swimming Pool is a photography set, and not a series of beautiful illustrations. Each image is a perfectly crafted combination of saturated colors and strong lines reminiscent of a Wes Anderson film.
the only movie poster I've ever owned was this iconic shot from Breakfast at Tiffany's. it moved with me throughout all of my college bedrooms, but once I graduated, I decided that my days of tacking a poster to the wall were over; no more push pin-decor for me.
I'm reconsidering my aversion to movie posters as art, though, after discovering the alternative movie posters of TheArtOfAdamJuresko on Etsy. this afternoon I ordered the beautiful Marie Antoinette print (I'm obsessed with all things Rococo and Sofia Coppola, so the combination is enough to break my current shopping ban). I really like many of his other interpretations, as well - the Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Graduate options being my top picks. these prints are chic enough to be nicely matted and framed, and no one could possibly confuse my apartment for a dorm room with them on the walls.
