For homegrown printing artisans Galbraith & Paul, color is key. “We are inspired by nature: flowers and plants in all their infinite complexity and rich hues, and the colors of food, spices, and vegetables,” says cofounder Ephraim Paul, who produces around 10 new fabric and wallpaper designs a year from his Manayunk studio.
It’s a happy coincidence that the burnt crimson and amber shades featured in the brand’s rich weaves are one of the key trends for fall. “Red and gold give a sultry look that is never dated,” says local makeup guru Carie Brescia. “Start by sweeping a gold shadow all over the eyelids, then anchoring the look with some black eyeliner applied very close to the lash line. Next, using a lip brush, apply a semimatte ruby-red lipstick, skipping the lip liner so that the look is modern and fresh.” And if you are working a bright cheek, Brescia recommends keeping the rest of the face muted and adding your blush with a supersize brush—“The bigger the brush, the more diffused the application,” she says.
