"Color gives us a real license to experiment with a place, because it is so easy to apply and change. And yet there is also a lot of science and design to it."

What's your favorite memory of painting a room? Are there any other places you've claimed with color?

It's generally best not to correct the grammar of someone brandishing a club.

There’s a confused and confusing debate going on over whether President Obama has presided over a “spending binge,” as Republicans claim, or whether, under Obama, “federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.” But I'd point out that this entire conversation is nonsense.

"Human uses of color usually have a strong symbolic component. ... Color helps you to make inferences and leap to a place in your imagination."

What places convey their essence through color?
