The Inspiration

Relief from sultry days comes in the form of pouring mornings. As one cuddles under waterproof layers, the sight of freshly sprouted flora sporting droplets that absorb light and unveil iridescent hues, reminiscent of rainbows, alleviates tension. When the drama of the downpour pauses for a bit, a bright sight, lustrous and blindingly luminous, takes over, proving that rains are indeed a prerequisite for a little shimmer.

Now Palette—Palette of the season ‘Luminous Lilac’

The Accents
Psychedelic finishes are the star of the season, and lilacs provide the perfect camaraderie. With rains drenching the outdoors in dynamism, interiors bear a still yet striking appearance with cheeky juxtapositions. Metallic musings and industrial details deliver an even edgier outcome.
