"Diane is very particular about color. One time, she spilled beet juice and wiped it up with a paper towel. She brought in the dried-up towel and said, 'This is the color that I want,'" said Suki Cheema, a textile designer for Diane Von Furstenberg. "Now when I walk down the street, if I see a color blue that I like, or a coffee cup that's a nice shade of yellow, I'll take a picture. I always go back to these photos and use them when I'm developing my color palettes." [WSJ]
