THE BOHO COASTAL VIBES COLLECTION
Boho Coastal Vibes collection, a beautiful subtle fall palette that has influences of living a carefree bohemian life infused with a coastal beach vibe inspired by a hike through the Sutro Baths at Lands End in Ocean Beach San Francisco.
During this chilly day, I encountered a beautiful connection to nature as the sound of crashing waves echoed through the ruins, and the plants were shrouded in the chilly autumn fog.
The essence of this memory brings this new paint collection to life...
My hope is that when you PLAY with #tracibautistaCOLOR products and this collection, it evokes a sense of freedom, exploration, and adventure. Go EXPLORE & PLAY...
