Do you designers out there have pantone swatch books? They are one of the best investments I’ve made – they are so helpful during the printing process and a good overall reference guide for any designer to have in their toolbox. Anyway, as I was looking through them this weekend, I thought it would be fun to randomly pick a swatch each week and create my own product ‘wheel’ in that color. I’ve done product picks here and there before, but this column is going to be my new way of organizing, and a means for me to add a little designer spin!

This week I was drawn to this fun teal-ish/aqua color. It reminded me of being poolside on this cold winter weekend, my mind is still on vacation! Each week I’m going to take a picture of the swatch so you can see the true color as it prints (or as close as I can get it). That’s one thing with pantone colors, they can look very different digitally than they do when they are printed. I hope this column fosters your love for color and pretty things – it certainly does for me!

I thought it would be fun to show you some of my recent purchases, from clothes to accessories to design & stationery. Some of these pieces would also make great gifts! I love scoring items on sale, like that purple headband and the mint sweater. Enjoy!
