Traveling through Scandinavia has something calming. The silence and freshness in some places sharpens your senses. Suddenly an old buoy between two colourful fishing huts catches the eye. The low mid-day sun shines intensely. In front of a dark green painted wall the orange surface is emphasized- just like the many signs of wear and cracks. It shows that there is a nice place for everything, even for supposedly discarded things. This deep orange tone portraits optimism. It is RETIRED BUOY.
RETIRED BUOY is a powerful, slightly darkened orange shade that is full of energy. It allows designing very expressive and striking rooms. Yet, the shade should not be applied throughout the room, but should only be used moderately. For this reason, flanking colours are recommendable. BEACH PEBBLE neutralizes the atmosphere of the room, CONTZEN WHITE as a basic colour is a good choice for larger areas. As a complementary counterpart the shade GREEN SUBMARINE is particularly suitable. The colour composition appears very balanced and fits beautifully to glued wooden surfaces and grey natural stone.
