Inspiration behind Steel Life's 2012 Color Picks

Every color in the rainbow has been through the ringer for the final selection of Steel Life's 2012 color palette.   My husband and I have completed the 'soft opening' for our new product line and are ready for our big launch next month.  

Our hopes are that these colors will complement both indoor and outdoor living spaces.  Originally, our Mod Dish was designed to plant succulents or display tillandsias in.  During our soft opening, it was brought to our attention that the Mod Dish is perfect for a variety of items, not just plants.

Attendees of the 2012 Modernism Week in Palm Springs next month will get the first, hands-on look at our new Mod Dish sizes and colors, along with the newly designed Shallow Root Vessel.

So, here is some of the inspiration behind the new colors for this year...
