Wonders for Your Wall

As they so often do, the aesthetic gurus over at DesignSponge have introduced me to another lovely new artist.

The Art of Design: Rothko

Last week, I romanticized about building an entire room around O'Keeffe's sorbet-hued abstraction from 1919.

Today, dream with me, as I wonder what it would be like to have Rothko's nonrepresentational color block study from 1949 on my lowly walls. (Recommendation from your art historian blogger buddy: if you are not a fan of Rothko, watch Simon Schama's The Power of Art and you might just become a convert.)

How might Rothko's warm palette affect your design choices? How would his blurry evanescent borders and soft billowy edges play out in your selections?
