This summer, the Tower Of London will be surrounded by a sea of crimson. This installation, conceived by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, will commemorate each and every British or Colonial fatality from World War 1 by planting 888, 246 red ceramic poppies in a flowing sea around the tower. My mum purchased a poppy for a relative lost in this battle. Absolutely beautiful.
The Peacock Room Castle Sammezzano, Tuscany Italy. I love anything colourful which is why this particular building caught my eye. I like the juxtapositioning of the bright rainbow like colours next to the more earthy browns. The shapes created looks almost like an illusion and to me gives it a make-believe feel, it also reminds me of peacocks tails the way they are positioned.
