Take a deep dive

A storm rages, turning the ocean into an unfriendly, almost cruel place. With the storm over, it can also show its mesmerizing, beautiful and friendly side. The sun is reflecting on the sparkling blue surface. The mystery and beauty continue even stronger beneath the ocean´s surface. First you dive into a fascinating world of emerald green colors. Diving deeper the sun´s powerful rays weaken, turning the colors around you to ever darker emeralds. The noise of the outside world softens, creating a soothingly calm surrounding and a free and weightless feeling.

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.
