Color Palette: Pastry Case

color_palettes_pastries

I snapped this picture while in Mexico City for the holidays, at a bakery in Frida Kahlo’s  neighborhood of Coyoacán. I love how the palette reflects the colors of the neighborhood, as well as Kahlo’s art, which no doubt was influenced by her surroundings. This color scheme brings to mind things like big bowls of fruit, lush gardens, and Kahlo’s floral crowns. I loved strolling around and browsing the markets in this colorful part of the city. My only regret is we had a plane to catch, and didn’t have time to come back to the bakery to sample the wares!
