Dunn-Edwards celebrated the launch of its 2020 Color of the Year — Minty Fresh with a private event held at the Grace Home Furnishings showroom. The guests — including architects, designers, media and influencers — enjoyed an eye-catching vignette created by Michael Ostrow and Roger Stoker, owners of Grace Home Furnishings, while sipping on Minty Fresh-themed cocktails.

The following day, Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards, joined Ostrow and Katy Carrier, editor of Modern Luxury Palm Springs, for a presentation and panel discussion at the showroom. Entitled “Bold & Beautiful: Designing with Color in the Desert,” the event addressed topics ranging from the history and evolution of the use of color in Palm Springs, to contemporary takes on how to best utilize color today.
