Fisher's works are based on one of the artist's dearest possessions — a booklet published by his father's housing company from the 1930s that suggests color schemes for both the interior and exterior of homes. If you think those swatches look familiar, it's because we saw them strutting down the runway for some major spring '14 collections, like Jil Sander and Proenza Schouler. The blend of vintage '30s color schemes with contemporary designs is exactly what we're looking for. Plus, you style your wardrobe based on runway trends, so it makes sense that designers could also provide themes for your home. Check out the exhibit and see for yourself — unless you want to head to your nearest hardware store and pick out 73 swatches of paint.
