Last week I had the pleasure of co-hosting an opening party for one of my favorite paint brands, Farrow & Ball
. They have just opened a new showroom in Pasadena and along with the event, they asked me to create an IRL “city palette” moodboard inspired by the city, to showcase at the party. I had so much fun bouncing around Pasadena, hitting up my favorite spots (the best part was getting a complete stranger to take the photo of me (shown below) at the gardens. I am still laughing at the conversation) and sharing them in an instagram takeover on their IG
. While I was gathering photos I made sure to pay extra attention to the colors.
These three photos made it into the takeover
, highlighting my favorite spot to get pampered (olive & june
), the best place to spend an afternoon getting lost in their gardens (huntington library & botanical gardens
), and the cutest pit stop to grab some lunch and an ice cream float (Float
Inspired heavily by the gardens and buildings like the Father of the Bride house, Olive & June, and shopper’s avenue, I created my Pasadena city palette of Studio Green, Pink Ground, Green Smoke, Railings, and Yellowcake. They seriously have THE BEST colors.
The evening of the party I welcomed Farrow & Ball
to Pasadena along with Elle Decor
, House Beautiful
with an evening of colour, bubbly, and canapés (I think I personally ate an entire tray of chicken and waffle bites).
