Summertime = bright colors, summer nights lit by glassybaby, and of course travelling.
Our uber-talented, free-spirited and always (I mean ALWAYS) fashionable roadshow manager Brittany is travelling to Sonoma, California next week for a little mini vacation. Never one to stop working, it was no surprise that she managed to work in some visits to the local wineries in hopes of bringing glassybaby light and color into some of their fabulous spaces. She asked me to provide a color palette that covered the “full spectrum” of our colors, something that captures “every aspect of our collection.” Seems easy enough, right? Well, here’s the catch…it needs to be no more than 16 colors to fit into one of our ever resilient and well-traveled 16-pack box. With upwards of 200+ colors in our current palette, this could be quite a challenge…but a challenge that I am happy to take on! After some careful thought, here is what I came up with (please see above image.)
Safe travels Britt!
I often get asked to suggest colors for first-time gifts. How do you gift someone that you’ve maybe only met a handful of times?
I love this challenge During the last holiday season I created the ‘starter kit,’ in my opinion, the perfect choice when you’re working with a blank slate. It has three of our best neutrals, ‘jane’s caramel,’ ‘friendship,’ and ‘hide and seek.’ There’s a universal appeal to these three colors that can give you peace of mind when sending a gift to someone you might know very little about. From the milky gradation of creams and purples in ‘friendship’ to the hypnotic glow of the red flame in ‘hide and seek;’ each one of these colors is unique, but as a whole, fit into so many different settings. That really can’t be said about many of our colors. So if you’re ever stuck at the moment of complete uncertainty, the ‘starter kit’ is a great jumping off point into the colorful (and sometimes daunting) world that is glassybaby. Enjoy
