Color Inspiration N°28 has a focus on Classic Blue, Pumpkin, Corn, Pink Peach, and Brown Plum.
The color Blue has been all over the news after Pantone nominated it the color of 2020. It has indeed become an inspiration for many to apply in the month to follow. Swedish paint company Jotun has previously included this hue as one of the colors for the next decade, calling it Statement Blue. Blue is a color representing the desire for stability, indispensable when stepping into a new decade of social and political turmoil and severe environmental challenges. As a primary color, it goes well with a wide range of hues. In color psychology, blue is dominated as a “cold” color; we associate blue with water, the sky, and ice.
//Color Inspiration No.28
The idea of this Color Inspiration No. 28, was to contrast the slightly colder feeling of Classic Blue with warmer hues. Pumpkin – an orangey color with a hint of spices, was an obvious choice as the complementary hue on the color wheel. Corn came next, a yellow tone not only associated with the warm feeling the sun provides, but also with gold, splendor, and luxury. This corn-yellow has a metallic effect, known in construction as goldtone. In less dominance, there are the Peach Pink and Plum Brown. These two fruity shades are necessary to balance the contrast created by the primary colors blue and yellow.

Gold, as a precious metal or result, has been frequently used in art: from the mosaics of the Byzantine art in more ancient times to art nouveau, and Klimt more recently. Still, nowadays, this golden touch can transform a simple layout in a premium space and elevate an entire color scheme.
