Colour Theory: Misty May

Rowan Kid Classic in Drought.

Rowan Kid Classic in Drought.

April showers bring, well, May flowers, but also May mist. Between the cool nights and warm (verging on hot) days, blossoms in soft colours, and the soft light of overcast days. Spring is undoubtedly a time of bright, vibrant colours, and then tend to overshadow the softer shades of the season. For fun, we thought we’d do something different than usual and highlight the softest, subtlest shades of May — soft blues, pale pinks, and warm greys.
