From Vernon in the north to Osoyoos in the south, we love exploring the Okanagan. It has everything that we love and enjoy in life, chief among them being great food, breathtaking (and accessible) landscapes, and a variety of locally crafted alcoholic beverages.

In the Okanagan at the moment (our HOOD palettes are ever-changing), we’re seeing the blue sky, sandstone, and green grass of Mission Hill; rural community mailbox green; four shades of peach; the sand at Naramata’s 3 Mile Beach (clothing optional); Painted Rock “Red Icon” 2011; the crushpad at Orofino; Haywire “Pink Bub” 2012; “K” Cafe signage tri-colour; Miradoro exterior; Road 13 proprietor Mick Luckhurst’s most excellent moustache; the tractor at Meyer Family Vineyards; sunny day view of Skaha Lake from God’s Mountain; and the green branding of Joiefarm.
