Colour Blocking - inspiration from the masters of fine art

As so often, influences in home decor, interior design and fashion started with art - or so the artists would say.

Colour blocking was very chique, very modern from the 1920s on, with artists such as Piet Mondrian and Rothko becoming the absolute masters of selection, balance and proportion of colours.

As things tend to go round in circles, it is no surprise that colour blocking is once again of great interest in textiles for fashion and interior, wall coverings for interior design and once again a favorite with CRONZ for our cutpile rugs.

Depending on the style of definition, the colours can either be defined as per Mondrian style using carving methods, or blended as per Rothko using softer, longer yarn to blend the colours.
