Cherry Mousse

With Cherries on Top

Why is it that adding a bit of white makes colors instantly appealing, as if they’ve been diluted by mounds of sugar and whipped cream, butter, or eggs?

Do pastel colors remind you of desserts?

Pink is for Lovers Collection

Pink has a lot of personalities. It’s the color for baby girls, bubblegum, and peppermint candies. But if you stop to think about it, pink can also be a very sensual color. It’s warm and playful – the perfect shade for lacy lingerie.

Don’t you think pink is romantic?

A Technicolor Christmas

the pink christmas tree!

Like rules, one of the great things about traditions is that you can break them. Although it’s nice to pass down a ritual through the generations, it’s also fun to bust out of the norm and do something really outrageous.

By now, the pink Christmas tree isn’t uncommon, but it is fun to see something a little more out of the ordinary. Even when we love red, white and green during the holidays, a splash of color can inspire a lot of smiles.

If you could have a quirky tree in any color, what would it be?

Magenta Magic

Right at this very moment, art teachers are telling children about the three primary colors.  And they’re getting it wrong.

Have you ever tried to mix red, yellow or blue paints?  It never works out as intended.  Red and yellow don’t make that crayon-perfect pumpkin orange.  It’s because the primary colors you need are magenta, yellow and cyan.

Magenta is what you would get if you mixed red with blue and white.  To make a perfect orange paint, you need a hint of pale blue!
