Escapism as an antidote to being locked inside for long periods throughout the pandemic is a recurring theme in our color stories. In this particular narrative, a picture-perfect view of rural, countryside living has us exploring our engagement with nature in a much more fantastical but artificial sense; cute cottages, fresh hay, floral gardens and blue skies. A longing for something unapologetically pretty and romantic drives an other-worldly, filmic quality to this aesthetic, taking the form of a highly-stylized, traditional agrarian bliss.
This informs a bucolic palette where warm ‘Turmeric’ provides a playful contrast with exaggerated, agrarian hues ‘Wasabi’ and ‘Peppercorn’, balanced with muted blue

A sense of domestic handicraft influences accessories, favoring materials like raffia, and we see a rise in porcelain with floral microprints in homewares.
