Today's post comes from Cherie Detwiler. We used to meet up monthly in the DC/Baltimore area for inspirational color field-trips. Sometimes it was a museum, special exhibit, or green resource store; other times, a cool restaurant. She moved to Los Angeles the very same time I moved to the Bay Area, and I miss our get-togethers. Okay, the mike is all yours, Cherie!
Since I’m a guest writer on Rachel’s color design blog, I figure the topic I choose will also tell you about myself and my style, yet open the door for all of you to look into the archives for color and design inspiration. My love for music and color is equal. So, why not merge the two and get inspired? The select three album covers are from singers/songwriters that hit my note and their album covers hit my style!
I'm "Boho Folk Retro Chic" What are you?

“Live in the colour of your dreams” - Carole King
“Whatever colors you have in your mind I'll show them to you
and you'll see them shine,” - Bob Dylan
“There’s a blue note in each song” – Elvis Costello
These three singer/songwriters and their vinyl album covers really sum up my musical and design preference: I call it, "Bohemian Folk Retro Chic". Yup, that’s me!
I suggest you go on an adventure. Go to the place where old vinyls lay there waiting to be found and explore your musical and design style. So, which classic vinyl album covers reflects -you-?
