PANTONE© 14-4620 TPG ISLAND PARADISE
Blending the constancy of blue with the soothing components of green, Island Paradise is a brilliantly delightful marriage of color temperatures indelibly associated in the human mind with coastal beauty and refreshing bodies of water from lagoons to sandy ocean beaches. Fresh and lively, this cleansing aqua shade transports us to the tantalizing seaside and oasis like spa retreats. Symbolizing the great escape to paradise, we can almost feel a hint of warmth emanating from this cool aqua shade.
PANTONE© 14-1323 TPG SALMON
Engaging Salmon beckons us in with its suggestion of charm and playful romance. A festive pink shade infused with a hint of orange, Salmon embodies the coral pink hues that mesmerize us as we gaze out over the ocean at the sunset radiating resplendently in the early evening sky. At the same time, enchanting Salmon is equally at home in blossoming floral fields, revealing a soft warmth in the intricate color details and nuances of natures gentle petals.
PANTONE© 19-1650 TPG EDEN
Evocative of rolling green hills and immersion in nature’s greenery, Eden, a lush and verdant forest green shade, reassures us with its soothing presence. Restoring our vitality and enhancing our sense of well-being, calm and cool Eden promotes balance and harmony. Nature’s ever present neutral, Eden’s message of new growth and new beginnings is life affirming.
PANTONE© 16-1340 TPG BRANDIED MELON
Intriguing in its color complexity, flavorful Brandied Melon has a genuine allure that quietly captivates and nourishes us with its warmth.
