Colour Me Right


 

Colours exude their own character and have the power to create the right ambience and arouse different emotions. Choose them well and they will set the mood for the day. We help you understand the significance behind each shade as you choose one that’s perfect for you.

RED
This romantic hue is universally heralded for its ability to arouse intense passion and ardour. Studies have shown that the mere sight of this rich colour can cause your pulse to quicken, making this rich shade perfect for adding a touch of drama to any setting. In Chinese culture, red symbolises good fortune.

Marry siren red with black and cream for dramatic contrast for any formal occasion. You may set the colour red with purple, gold, or silver to create an aura of royalty.

This brilliant hue goes well with pristine white and soft buttery yellow. Consider combining these shades together to create a medley of colours that symbolise summer and warmth.

PINK
Nothing is more overtly feminine than this delicate colour. Soft, beguiling, and flirtatious, this shade brings to mind the colour of a woman’s flushed cheeks. Because of its link to all things romantic, this hue is a favourite choice amongst brides, and is therefore more frequently used than any other colour.

This shade goes best with white, blue, pale green, pale yellow or simply a mixture of varying pink shades.

WHITE
Queen Victoria’s snowy satin gown at her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840 sparked a whole new trend that has become a mainstay in bridal fashion. The colour white, in that era, stood for purity; but now, this classic shade is associated with promise and optimism.

Combine this pristine shade with pale yellow, fresh greens and almost any other colour that takes your fancy because white is one shade that is so versatile that it goes with literally anything!

Pairing green with yellow creates a fresh and fruity palette. The widely popular mix of green and brown colours is the mainstay of environmentalists. This versatile earthy tone blends well with white and gold as well.

BLUE
This cool shade has a long biblical history as a colour that symbolises loyalty and spiritual constancy. A deep royal blue or azure conveys richness and a touch of superiority. Blue is a year-round color, pastel blues, especially along with pinks and pale yellows suggest springtime. Create a conservative but sophisticated look with subtle contrast by combining light and dark shades of blue.

Blue goes well with most colours – white, brown, and pale yellow.

LAVENDER
This classic favourite was, during the reign of Emperor Aurelia, literally worth its weight in gold, due to its sheer rareness. Today, this shade is accessible to anyone who is enchanted by its delicate and soothing tone. Use this shade freely on your big day to add a sense of tranquil glamour to your setting.

This versatile colour matches perfectly with a number shades, from pale greens, to whites, to oranges, to pinks. So, have fun with this dynamic shade.
