Paris:




Rio:

Jodhpur is an interesting selection - it is an attractive blue town in a colorful land,Rajasthan. The choice of pinks is intriguing.They go very well with the Jodhpur blues.But will they change the character of a blue building in a blue town? Will the pinks stand out?

or a merry turquoise blue(one of the blues in the palette)-


Or, a lemony, candy like yellow(sadly missing from the Jodhpur shade card. It would go very well with the others)-
