Picking color is one of the best parts of my job. I love mixing hues and seeing what unexpected tones sit together. Also, as a kid I wanted to be the person who names crayons. See, my love of color goes waaay back!

I’d like to kick off a monthly series based on a color of the month. The first post in the series will be a moodboard to set the atmosphere. Then I’ll do a series of round ups based on the moodboard!

It might be fairly obvious, but hot pink is one of my favorites lately. From my new pink silk shoes to my blog, I can’t seem to get enough. I love the way it pops with all white, but also how it can be mixed with warm wood tones, persimmon orange, and even cream.
