Pack Your Bags ~ St Tropez and Scala Await (win a set of bags)

June 11, 2012

Just saying the name, St Tropez, captivates.  Probably one of the most storied villages on the globe, the town itself is actually rather small.  Its famous harbor was once filled with fishing boats and the gentle light inspired artists such as Paul Signac, Matisse, and David Hockney and fashion designers like Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli.

Cinda Boomershine credits St Tropez as the inspiration for her popular new colorway Scala Ivory.

“On a recent trip to France, I [tried to capture the essence of that magical place in Scala Ivory]. Everywhere I looked, I saw inspiration for the colors. The soft pinks of the summer flowers, the warm whitewashed buildings, the chic locals with sun kissed skin clad in breezy ivory linen all lead me to a soft pallet of blush tones and ivory. The weathered drift woods and cobble stone streets inspired the perfect mushroom grey accent. As St. Tropez is a village by the sea, a fresh take on a “fishscale” pattern seemed natural. The result is a neutral pattern that is both feminine and sophisticated.”

Cinda’s favorite place to stay in St Tropez, Pastis Hotel conjures the colors of Scala Ivory with its grey shutters against an ivory stucco – even the carefully groomed boxwoods seem to echo the elegant scalloped pattern of the colorway.
