A British flag has taken on an artistic look with batiks in muted reds, whites and blues. I call this one His Royal Union Jack and I have it hanging in my living room against a dark grey wall. It’s bright yellow binding adds a bit of wow-factor to the room. Yellow and gold are my new favorite colors, but look out, my fav could change at any minute. I’ve had favorite colors come and go many times. It is fun to love a new color.   —Joyce Robinson
