I’m a great fan of John Saladino‘s work and one of the many reasons is his use of color. This is the main reason he’s a “Designer We Love.” Looking at his work, I almost feel as though I’m viewing an expression of nature, so perfect the palette and textured nuances. Regarding one of John’s rooms recently, a friend said, “”I just want to stare at it’s beauty.” Ditto I thought, the feeling is similar to enjoying a sublime Santa Barbara sunset such as this. I don’t do it often enough but it’s a great treat to enjoy a water perspective of our beloved city whether out paddling on a surfboard or on a catamaran sunset cruise. Time to get out there!
