Need a little mental break right now? I’ve got just the cure … macarons.
Check out this amazing TCX color palette I’ve been working with this past week. I took this pic last summer in Hawaii where there is an amazing shop selling these magical beasts (See La Tour Cafe … I just saw you can order their macarons online!). I figured a little color splash would be a nice treat today – if I can’t have the actual cookies at the moment.
FYI – to my designer friends, if you’re new to working on textile designs the TCX palettes are a little different than the coated or uncoated pantones we typically use for print so it’s fun to create palettes for different substrates. See Pantone Connect and get a little ‘mad scientist’ with textile color!
fun with color

Over the summer I was able to go to Hawaii to visit family and while there we had the amazing opportunity to walk the Pow! Wow! Exhibit at the Bishop Museum in Honolulu. If you ever have the chance to go – you MUST! The colors and artistry are overwhelming and inspiring, with something amazing and new around each corner. You also will love seeing the other Pow! Wow! street art in Honolulu. To learn more and see where other exhibits are – check out their website.
This color palette is taken from the mesmerizing wall mural by artist Andrew Schoultz (see @aschoultz on Instagram). I think I stood staring at this piece from all angles for a good 20 minutes.
It’s been awhile since I made a color palette but this pic seemed the perfect one for the time of year!
Happy 4th of July
