Color Mark: Textile Hues

I took this photo in January when I was in LA and went to see the "Pacific Design" exhibit at LACMA. Everything here was designed between 1935 and 1965 which was the time when California design became highly influential in mainstream America.

The paint samples match the following Benjamin Moore paint colors: 
2011-10, 2111-50, 2022-30, 2120-40, 2042-30

These outfits were designed to be used during the hot summer months in California and in them you can see the influence of the Latin culture present in the cities' daily life. I love the deep contrast of vibrant hues against neutral shades.

Have a great and bright day!
