We present a secret garden inspired story featuring all shades of Pink – in both the cool and warm tones. In the cool tones we feature Dark Peony, Cherry Blossom, Peony and Magnolia. In the warm tones we feature more Coral cast Pinks, such as Salmon Rose and Peach Amber.
The shades of blooming spring flowers at Huntington Gardens – from the intense saturated shades of Deep Pink to the delicate hint of Blush. We mixed the two types of shades – both cool and warm – as we would see them in nature.
Peach Amber. I love this shade of Pink for the subtle blend of warm Coral with a hint of Blush. It is classic and vintage inspired yet unexpected in all its warm tones in an all Pink story.
MUST-HAVE ITEM FOR SPRING 2014
Our vintage inspired floral printed cotton dobby pretty dress. The tea length and pleating and shirring details evoke pure classic femininity, while the fabric combination – the sheer illusion organza yoke – is on trend.
WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU REPAINT A ROOM OR ACCENT PIECE IN YOUR HOME?
I would paint my bedroom Magnolia – a delicate shade of Blush Pink. It is light, pretty and feminine, yet subtle enough to create a neutral palette to punch up with darker more saturated Pinks and Blues. I just have some convincing to do with my husband.
