Pamplemousse Color Palette
Posted by Erin Furey
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.
1 La Croix Pamplemousse sparkling water
2 Frosted cup and malt cup
3 Plastic spoons leftover from my high school graduation (in 2003!)
4 Some dish soap
5 Scrubbing sponge
6 Pink hand soap and an orange spatula
7 My mom loves brightly colored kitchen tools
8 Ice cream bowls (a gift from me to mom many summers ago)
9 A Gaudi magnet I brought back from a year in Barcelona
10 Plate and bowl
11 My favorite worn kitchen towels (mom always keeps these way in the back of the drawer)
13 A cooler I won in 1999 — it came with a year's supply of Gatorade!
14 Classic cottage cheese
15 A brick of Kraft cheddar cheese
16 Cake flour

18 Bright colander
19 O.J. cap, milk cap, and lemon juice cap
20 Well-used cutting board
21 Some cookbooks
22 A package of gelatin from who-knows-when
23 The box: I love this packaging!
24 For prolonging the warmth of your tortilla
25 A catalog that arrived in the mail
26 I found this waaay in the back of the very top shelf of the medicine cabinet. It is from when I was a baby! This packaging could be 27 years old.
27 The side of this box—what great colors. 1984 seems like a good year for packaging
28 Birth certificates from my Cabbage Patch Kids
29 I love these worn pink plastics (comb, travel soap dish, single-blade razor)
31 Nail files
32 Travel toothbrush case
33 Nail polish remover
34 Dad's old shoe horn
