An hour or two of inspiration goes a long way.  Last week I squeezed in a little time to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to see the latest show from the Costume Institute. It is called “Heavenly Bodies” and was inspired by the vestments of the Catholic Church.

It has been a while since I have visited a museum but last weekend I had the chance to go to the recently expanded Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. While my time was limited, I was able to view many interesting artifacts and objects and the exceptional ancestral home of the Huang family ensconced within the museum.

I just read that the Pantone color of the year is Greenery. We all a love green; it is the color of grass, foliage and vegetables, especially cucumbers, spinach and broccoli. It is thought of as a fresh color, one that makes people feel secure and safe in its presence.

On a recent day in New York, I carved out time for what I call “sightseeing.” The Cooper Hewitt always has remarkable new exhibits, and when there, l love to revisit the decorative arts collections of the Hewitt sisters. If you are tech inclined, this is is definitely the place to go. Admittedly, I take the more conventional (old-fashioned) approach to gallery exhibits, which is to read the descriptions and take photos as opposed to trying to manipulate and play with the screens.
