farrow & ball party

mood-boardLast 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.
