Summer is in the air and what better colour to share with you than a soft breezy shade of ‘mellow’ blue. This hue brings to mind expansive open skies and endless oceans, creating a sense of calm and reprieve during these turbulent times.
Mellow Blue B4-C2-2 has an airy and serene sensuality that makes it an obvious choice for our October colour of the month.
It is a versatile colour that marries extremely well with most hues and works well in most environments.
It is a hue that can play many parts… A serene mood in a rest space, an edgy graphic in a contemporary workspace, or a contrasting breath of freshness against a dramatic backdrop. Wherever it appears, it brings a sense of stillness and calm.

Following on from the Pantone colour combination, this duo of pink and blue hues is dynamic yet gentle. Alternatively, combine it with a coral red to add vibrant energy.
