Happy Valentine’s Day bunnies! While not normally one for holiday themed posts (so much pressure!) I thought today would be a perfect opportunity to join the Pantone Color of the Year bandwagon. For those not in the know, 2014′s winning color is a rather fascinating shade of dusty mauve. But who wants to be hemmed with a single color? And so, for the purposes of this post, I’ve taken a few liberties – stretching radiant orchid from the palest shades of pink the the deepest of purples. Who knew this little girl’s favorite could look so chic? Above – a retro-glam pink door marks the entrance to a Palm Springs vacation home. Interior design by Moises Esquenazi and Associates.
