“word to the wise” wednesday: diana vreeland

All my life I’ve pursued the perfect red.  I can never get painters to mix it for me.  It’s exactly as if I’d said, ‘I want rococo with a spot of gothic in it and a bit of Buddhist temple.’  They have no idea what I’m talking about.  About the best red is to copy the color of a child’s cap in any Renaissance portrait.

Diana Vreeland (quoted in the dearly departed Metropolitan Home)
