PARALLEL WORLD

Remote and untouched, the far corners of the planet can seem like an alternative universe. This palette verges on science fiction, but is grounded in a bizarre side of reality. The typical colors of animals, plant life and minerals astonish in abnormal mutations, crossbred pollinations, or are simply obscured by the weather conditions.

Intense midnight blues, full-bodied greens and rich royal purples are sprinkled with a snowfall of translucent icy blues and vaporous gray. Cool shiny enamel and glossy liquid-paint textures juxtapose with matte hues to create a multidimensional world within understated monotone spectrums. The ambiguous line between real and surreal makes for a refreshing update on the usual colors of winter dressing.

Light Mist

A vaporous mist of blazing yellow and parakeet green infuses the lively colors of the rainforest into dark corners. Play with the varying levels of purples and greens for a youthful energy, but don't peek too far out of the shadows to maintain complexity.

Winter Garden

In small doses, unusual berries and winter vegetable greens are a refined complement to a cinematic grayscale film palette.
