A sultry brown hue paired with an ethereal peachy-blush tone makes this color duo a seductive match!
Brown can represent steadfastness and simplicity while light blush colors often signify vigor and freshness. We have paired sweet Glazed Ginger with the delicate and graceful Bellini is a yin and yang combo. perfect for classic styles, moods and even flavors.
One of my favorite flavor pairings is ginger and peach. The pungency of ginger actually contrasts with the full fruitiness of peach but for my palate, they're a match made in food nirvana. I like to use this flavor mix for many recipes, but cocktails are my favorite. I'm currently captivated by this Ginger Peach Bellini from Daily Waffle! You will understand my obsession once you try the recipe below.

- 2 oz. ginger peach syrup
- 4 oz. prosecco (La Marca is slightly sweet and makes for a nice Bellini)
1. Pour 2 oz. of ginger peach syrup into a champagne flute. Top with prosecco. Yep, that's it.

For me, the color green signifies an abundant life in harmony, and supremely good health - all things that are important for my overall wellbeing. I've carried my adoration of the hue into my business with our company logo in 4 ombre green leaves, each representing a part of the foundation of our organization's core values: a passion for color, a love of design, respect for our community and a commitment to service to others.
One of my self-care rituals is a regular detox day consisting of yoga, meditation, lots of rest and a juice or smoothie cleanse. I feel that giving my mind and digestive system a break is one of the best things I can do to help create balance, replenish my energy and maintain my glow. Lately, I've been whipping up this absolutely delightful, deliciously simple Detox Spinach Green Smoothie that I discovered on the food blog, Vibrant Plate
. Give the recipe below a try the next time you want a healthy treat!
Detox Spinach Green Smoothie
- 2 bananas
- 1 apple
- 1 cup young spinach leaves
- 1 lime (or orange, lemon)
- water as needed (I substitute unsweetened green tea)
- Peel bananas and apple, cut into slices and put into a blender. Wash spinach leaves and add to blender. Squeeze juice of 1 lime (can be replaced with orange or lemon) into the blender.
- Add water or green tea as needed.
- Blend until smooth (I use my trusty Vitamix) and serve.
Of course, my obsession with green wouldn't be a real thing if it didn't continue in my closet. I use the vibrancy of the hue to liven neutral looks - tans, beiges and browns never had a better partner. Colorful accessories, like the handbags I found and love above, are a major way to make a dynamic impact with any outfit and adding almost any shade of green will take your OOTD to bright, exciting levels.

fresh, clean, invigorating and calming all at once. blues and greens are natural palette companions but this duo has a special relationship. often paired in real-life depictions of the richness of our fertile planet, we are reminded of the beauty of Earth and asked to respect it as our one and only universal home.
while I have enjoyed working with these life-affirming colors in preparation for creating this post, they reminded me of how easy it is to forget that many parts of the world are still recovering from the effects of weather-related disasters. Parts of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are still rebuilding from hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. Join me in support of the rebuilding of the US Virgin Islands by donating to The Fund for the Virgin Islands Hurricane Relief today.

vibrant. energetic. alive. Pantone's Color of the Year for 2019 is a reminder that despite the refreshing chill of winter hues, spring and summer colors reign vibrantly supreme.
traditionally a color with popularity in beauty and fashion, Living Coral is versatile. use it to add eye-catching elements to your home. here are a few products our CEO/Creative Director, Juliet loves for incorporating the color into a neutral palette in your kitchen or on your dining table:
shopping guide (top left to right, clockwise): KitchenAid® Artisan Stand Mixer, Madhouse by Michael Aram Opaque Disposable Flatware, Deanery Glaze Melamine Dinner Plate, Curacao Coral Electric Kettle, Platinum Series Range from BlueStar
While we are enamored with Living Coral, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge that the name of the color reminds us that coral reefs around the world are suffering. Why care about reefs? Here's what we found on coral.org:
Coral reefs are an important food source for the people who live near reefs, and, as nurseries, are vital to the world’s fisheries. Many of the compounds now being used in human medicines, including some that treat cancer, are found on coral reefs, with probably many more yet to be discovered. Coral reefs help humans in many other ways too: generating tourist dollars for communities, and—especially important in our changing climate—acting as natural barriers against storm events like hurricanes, typhoons, and even tsunamis.
These are compelling reasons and why we are donating 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the coral colored enamel bangle bracelets on eBay to the Coral Reef Alliance.
on the style board: your warm-weather looks get a vivid boost with accessories in shades of this brilliant coral. go for a complete tone on tone outfit, if you dare or spice up an ensemble in navy, beige or cream with your favorite coral handbag. use lips and nails as canvasses to paint on the glow!
