Pamplemousse Color Palette

Posted by

During a trip home, my mother's box of La Croix's pamplemousse (that's grapefruit in French) sparkling water caught my eye.  Inspired by the colors and packaging, I went rummaging through our kitchen and medicine cabinet in search of a pamplemousse palette!  In the process I found some real gems, like my original Cabbage Patch Kids' birth certificates! New and inspiring palettes are everywhere. Sometimes all you need to do is look in your mom's dresser drawer.

The side of this box—what great colors. 1984 seems like a good year for packaging
