Color: Pale Palettes for Summer

April 8th, 2013


I’ve been living in a new apartment since September and the street’s a rather commercial one. It’s filled with banks, steakhouses, furniture showrooms and the Fed Ex and UPS headquarters. When you’re rushing to the train, it’s easy to miss the charm, but when you’re lingering, noticing the details, the gems start to pop. Here’s a beautiful find along Greenwich, just north of Canal St.


The color blocking and pale palette represents the summer months ahead and it inspired me to make a stripe, then a plaid, then experiment some more.


Here are a few darker compliments filled with contrast. They’re reminiscent of  men’s outerwear – specifically the snow gear that’s about to get packed away and stored til the Fall.
