its Holi, festival of colors. We thought this time we would take a direct imspiration from colors- Holi colors are bright but they do fall in the category of pastels. Pastels are different, they are soft to touch and feel… and so they can have a very very soothing effect at home if used in not only paints but also in a few accents here and there.
