My favorite color has been grey as long as I can remember. Thirty plus years ago, I took my bright blue Karmann Ghia to Earl Scheib to have it painted dove grey (sacrilege, I’m sure, to classic VW enthusiasts, but I thought it looked really classy!).
Lately, I’ve been trying hard to introduce color into my wardrobe and home décor … a bit of a challenge for me. But this huge vintage classroom map of California, looming over my shoulder here in my office, serves as an inspiration to bring a little vibrance into my life. I love the retro palette! I’m sure that time and exposure have softened the map’s original hues, and that’s fine with me. I can never imagine using all these colors in one space, but a little bit here and there couldn’t hurt. Right?
