Artist Inspiration: Piet Mondrian

Color blocking is a growing trend in both fashion and home décor. The look is both simple and eye-catching. Color blocked walls might be a bit showy, but accent walls, kitchen cabinets or mix-and-match furniture can be a safer bet for the less adventurous.

For inspiration in color blocking, look to the work of Piet Mondrian.

Mondrian, a Dutch painter, is best known for his non-representational work, which he termed neoplasticism. The art consisted of a white ground, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and squares of the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue.

Mondrian passed away in 1944 in New York City. His work has inspired fashion designers and companies including Lola Prusac, Yves Saint Laurent and even Nike.
