Summer Potpourri

Late summer days, the light starts to get softer, the air is still warm, but you feel the coming change already. Moments get precious as the summer heat and smell fades in the cool morning breeze. Summer potpourri is our attempt to conserve the spirit. The warm rosé color appears to be soft and deep. Inviting to touch the seemingly warm, nearly organic surface. Just like the delicate ingredients of a nicely arranged potpourri you can experience with almost all senses.

Feasibility for on-line application

The stylings in our color inspirations are intended to demonstrate future effect color directions and possibilities. Although we have tried to make the formulations as realistic as possible, we cannot guarantee their full feasibility for on-line application. A certain degree of modification and fine tuning will probably be necessary.
