Aesthetic associations are based on numerous physical characteristics--color, material, form, location (adjacency), influences, etc. When we sat down to create this blog, we looked at the Byrdcliffe Arts Colony which led us to the hard lines of the Arts and Crafts Movement, then to early Lucian Freud paintings. His palette and flat rendering reminded us of the furniture of Roy McMakin (of whom we've been a fan for years.) This is how and when our "Stream of Consciousness Week" ends...with an explanation of the thought process and a result quite divorced from our original idea. Welcome to the minds of Hunters and Gatherers at Home:

We hunt for precious finds. Objects that represent timeless beauty and tell stories of time and place, taste and utility, integrity and influence. We're passionate about expanding our visual vocabulary and gather indigenous palettes, textures and forms that provide us with inspiration and application for our everyday lives. We will tell you narratives through the images we capture along the way—stories about process, composition, adjacencies, and the emotional energy created by brilliant design.
