Bright Design in Dark Times: Marimekko vs. GOP

Ever since the tweeting moron and his dark sycophants took over, I have found myself subconsciously drawn, evermore to the exuberant optimism of vividly colored design. Antidote or escape? Should I be ashamed of myself because I am retreating into a bubble and taking such pleasure in bright and beautiful objects? Or is it ok? Allowed? Maybe even a beautifully human impulse to appreciate aesthetics. Both?

Poppies! Marimekko come to life.
