The Great Clarifier
I spent an hour or so the other night looking at Spanish designer Luis Bustamante's website, and I was treated to that photo above. Is that a bar or what?! I thought that my bar was well-stocked, but it's nothing compared to this one.
Once my eyes adjusted to that gracious plenty of liquor bottles, I started to pay attention to the other details in the photo like those red ikat lampshades and the red and white striped wall to the left. A shot of crisp red certainly has a way of catching one's eye. And while looking through the rest of Bustamante's portfolio, my eye kept getting caught again and again, thanks to the designer's emphatic use of this color in so many of his projects (see below). It seems that red must be one of Bustamante's favorite colors, don't you think?
I suppose that I could say more, but after a thirteen-hour work day, I can barely string two sentences together. Fortunately, I think the photos speak for themselves.
