you know i’m a tart for anything inspired by colour, so i was really happy to discover a collaboration between stylist Marcus Hay & photographer Kat Teutsch on a wonderful series called New York Stories: self styled shoots inspired by the lives of fictional ladies in New York City. says Marcus,

my top 10 lists are always changing – top 10 bands i want to see live (daft punk & arcade fire are usually in there), top 10 hottie actors (hello jon hamm, hello javier bardem), top 10 foods i would choose as my last meal (that is a particularly tough one) …but some of my top 10 famous artists are pretty easy to nail down: gauguin, van gogh, odilon redon, cezanne, rousseau, chagall, picasso and matisse amongst others. all at their most colourful periods.
whenever i’m daydreaming about fantasy holidays, looking through the directories of beautiful hotels or checking out cheap flights, my mind always wanders back to paris. i have visited the city a number of times, but i can’t seem to get enough of it – you can keep your tropical islands and skiing holidays, all i want is the chance to visit paris again.
have been quietly obsessing over this colour scheme for a while. decided to call it sherbert. yes, i know the correct spelling is sherbet – but i pronounce it sherbert. and since i am making up a colour scheme i may as well make up a word, too. it’s somewhere between art deco pink, peach, salmon and dusty rose… i guess it’s all of them combined.
