"There are painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun."Pablo Picasso, Painter.

Lighter colour shades are more accepted but use brighter ones for playful or graphic decors.


"The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." John Muir, Writer. Shining like the new leaves of spring, yellow-greens give a smacking fresh citrus taste with their presence. They make for striking combinations with most colours.

"I think it makes God angry if you walk by the colour violet in a field somewhere and don't notice it." Alice Walker, Novelist. Violet is the colour of royalty. It also has a mystical side. Shades of violet can infuse a sense of luxury in the air. Violet also has a meditative quality that makes it a colour of clarity and foresight.

It complements beautifully with a wide range of colour shades creating a feeling of nurturing and ease.

Blue Green

"I love the sea's sounds and the way it reflects in the sky. The colours that shimmer across its surface are unbelievable." John Dyer, Poet.

"God has a brown voice." Anne Sexton, Poet. Brown can evoke as many moods as there are shades. It can be rich and sophisticated, warm and comforting or neutral and secure. Chosen with any combination, brown always stays unaffected by passing fads and styles.


"The colour of truth is gray." Andre Gide, Novelist. Gray is elegance. Gray brings sophistication and modernity with its presence. Use it with dark shades for bold artistic statements and with light shades for timeless elegance.
