The most exotic place I’ve visited so far is Istanbul, Turkey.  Sultanamet is the old town of Istanbul where you will find the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the ruins of Constantinople.

This color set is inspired by my favorite shopping place in Sultanamet, the Spice Bazaar. I am still enjoying my purchases from a few years ago of smoked paprika, oregano, saffron and red chili flakes, as well as herbs for teas and my favorite – apple tea!
