Yes, that time has come when I have gone mad and decided to experiment with a soft and muted colour palette. I’ve resisted the temptation to use my favourite colours of phthalo blue, torquoise and magenta, and gone ahead and tried to keep it very soft and blended. There’s no need to worry.

With thoughts of doubt of bright and bold colours, I decided to try my hand at an earthy colour palette. Something that could coordinate easily with a living area or lounge setting.
