Morning Pick-me-up

Washstand, 1904 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This beautiful washstand was designed as part of the furnishings for a house he designed called Hous'hill. The owner of the house also owned a series of tea rooms that were designed by Mackintosh and company.

I love the color. There is something about this blue that reminds me of Ukiyo-e Prints of Japan.

Mackintosh's work was definitely influenced by the collecting and viewing of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints in Paris and London. He may have owned some himself, but if he didn't he knew people who did.
