Exotic Botanic is the notion of reconnecting with nature, and going back to our roots. The hypnotic colours and rich deep hues re-awaken the senses and revitalise even the smallest of spaces. A simple addition of a botanic accessory could bring a sense of the eclectic and add a bit of drama.
The notion of re-connecting to our roots has seen a shift in colour direction, as we move towards softer palettes. This is evident in the two themes ‘Raw’ and ‘New Skin’ of solid and dependable colours. The exploration of natural tones leads to the development of lush greens and dusty pinks, which is illustrated in the themes ‘Rhythmic Palms’ and ‘Exotic Botanic’, both echoing the diversity of nature.
