Anyone who knows Portia knows her as the pink lady who cannot live without pink

Portia Leuterio teaches ladies and their daughters and granddaughters how to create trinkets, wrap gifts, set the table, the bows and furbelows of the genteel life. Alas, after two years of a strict lockdown during which she and her students stayed home in their own bubbles, Portia had to content herself with a small, really small, birthday celebration with just three of her closest friends.

P FOR PINK Ready for high tea: teapot, teacups, three-tiered tray, and roses, of course, all in pink; and ornaments in pink glass adorn a corner of Portia’s kitchen

Portia’s birthday falls two days before Christmas Day, so the tea party last month was also a Christmas get-together after lunch in a restaurant nearby. Anyone who knows Portia knows her as the pink lady who cannot live without pink. Her tiny house at the end of a shaded street is all done in pink—walls, chairs, kitchen, ref, oven, telephone, bedroom, bathroom, furniture and furniture covers, accents and accessories, even the toilet paper.

WHAT, NO ONE DRESSED IN PINK? Eega Narvaez, Portia, and Diana Go

Without a doubt, pink is Portia’s signature color. When and how it began? Maybe she’ll reveal the secret in an autobiography she’s been planning to write, and not in purple prose!
