Ladurée, Macarons Les Glaces
Sweet Color Palette
When the macaron craze first broke, it was all about subtle pastels.
The New Soft
Designer Fawn Galli's living room, with a pastel palette of pink and green, was inspired by a pair of ikat drapes from Cambodia. Her macaron-sweet color scheme looks modern when accessories and furniture are so minimalist and refined.
As the macaron color palette has shifted from delicate, ladylike pastels to authoritative, rich neons, home decor has also kept up with these changing trends.
