PANTONE© 16-1522 TPG ROSE DAWN
A muted and dusted pink hue supported by a grounding brown undertone, Rose Dawn is a color we associate with the natural glow of health. Whether appearing in the wondrous sunrise that marks the beginning of our day or presenting a soft and subtle contrast within vibrant flower fields, this warming rose tone appeals to our persisting desire for unpretentious and untreated organic color. Embracing us with its earthy appeal, welcoming and approachable Rose Dawn expresses the gentle comfort we continue to seek.
PANTONE© 15-4323 TPG ETHEREAL BLUE
Inherently connected to a clear and cloudless blue sky, Ethereal Blue conjures up visions of endless opportunities for outdoor recreation and relaxing wellness retreats. A daily presence in our lives, Ethereal Blue’ constancy instills us with calm and contentment; bringing a sense of peace and tranquility to the human spirit and inspiring feelings of unfettered freedom, escapism and the desire to run and play.
PANTONE© 19-4535 TPG OCEAN DEPTHS
Speaking to our ongoing love affair with sea waters and water related activity, Ocean Depths is a complex fusion of green and blue reminiscent of the color of the sea, coastal shorelines and the watery paradise of deep lagoons. Combining the loyalty, wisdom and calming qualities of blue with the soothing, healing and compassionate qualities, both to mind and body, ascribed to green, Ocean Depths suggests a spirit of connectedness and evokes feelings of laid-back sophistication and modern glamour.
PANTONE© 16-0948 TPG HARVEST GOLD
Emblematic of autumn’s yellow florals, spectacular sunsets and idyllic sandy beaches, Harvest Gold is a primitive shade that connects us with the passing of the seasons and the beauty and splendor found within the habitat of our natural world. Savory and spicy, a golden yellow striking in appearance, Harvest Gold is equally suggestive of exotic culinary surprises. Illuminating without overly heating, we bask in the glow of this warmly lit solarized shade.
