Dusty Rose is not exactly a go to colour for me - I generally associate it with ribbon gracing the necks of geese on porcelain from the early 90's, but I think it is this walking a thin line between dated and re-emerged that makes this colour edgy. Baby blue and buttercup yellow will be definite omissions from this palette. Pair dusty rose with heaps of neutrals and greys to keep it current.
