Inspired By Pantone Tarts

This is such eye candy! New decor8 columnist and French author and stylist Emilie Griottes (details here), recently pulled together a column for French magazine Fricote mixing one passion (food) with another (color) to result in a story about Pantone colors as yummy tarts!

Pantone Tarts

I really love this and admire how Emilie really knows how to bring her imagination to life. When I met her recently in Paris for breakfast, I admired her energy and love for styling and producing things that are fresh and creative. She has only been working as a stylist, photographer and cook for one year and already she has produced books and styled for other books and magazines. It’s amazing really, to see such growth so quickly — but of course, well deserved as she is quite amazing.

Her yummy tarts as Pantone color swatches is quite brilliant! In the magazine you can even find the recipes for each of her creations in case looking at them has made you hungry. This is just so ahead of the curve and creative, I adore Emilie’s work and can’t wait to share her first column later this week on decor8 with all of you!
