Too Good (inspired by Toogood)

Faye Toogood is a stylist who designs sets, interiors, and exhibitions.  I love the way she deals with space and objects in space and color. Everything’s tinged with notions of the past, yet generously modern and very very 2010.

Mind-bendingly brave color explosions combining complex large and small-scale color textile patterns.

Muted neutrals in vintage sepia and rose pinks, powder blues and soft grays are anything but old-fashioned.

Making magic out of simple materials such as foam and plywood blocks, corrugated cardboard and mirrors.

Modern, rational angles, lines, circles and shapes evoke Bauhaus movement.

Her awesome website is chock full of examples of her work. Once again Sight Unseen has unearthed another inspiration.
