Clumps of Color

Artist Helga Steppan arranged all of her worldly possessions into a series of compelling photographs, all of which consisted of items of a single color. Reds, blues, greens, blacks, greys – when arranged in this highly unconventional way, the objects look otherworldly.

This idea might work well if you were gathering accessories to complement a newly painted room. And, if you cannot determine what your favorite color is, dividing things into color families would give lots of information about your preferences.

Let me know if you sort things via color, it could be eye-opening!
