Hot Color Combos: Wintered Rose and Shitake

winteredrose-shitake For this week’s hot colors, we’re taking another cue from the Pantone Fall 2008 Color Report.  Wintered Rose and Shitake are a different play on the already tired pink and brown theme.  Instead of drawing attention with bold statement colors, these muted tones are more sultry and more complex.  Last week, we went for bold and contrast.  This week, we’re a bit more subdued.  These deep shades can resonate so much– but for me, it was the romance. I saw nothing but modern elegance and lushness when I saw this mauve and brown shade.  The ivory added a touch of innocence at the same time.

This Year’s Top First Dance Songs?

  It’s no secret that I have kidlets. That being said, my recent movie theatre experiences are limited to Disney, Dreamworks and anything else animated. A few weeks ago, we took the minis to see Enchanted, and I was struck by this song.  I was immediately on my phone taking notes of the title and artist’s name.

The song is absolutely beautiful– It is So Close by Jon McLaughlin.
