ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

A summer day is a painting composed of an infinite variety of shades, tones and emotional contrasts. Experience its mélange of happy, cheerful, fresh and delectably juicy colors. Expect cool shades of watery petrol, indigo blue and a storm cloud here and there, as well as the bright yellow tones of the blazing midday sun, ripe sheaths of wheat, fresh-squeezed orange juice and red-hot tile roofs. Succumb to the sweet berry hues of soft strawberry jujubes and delicious blueberry ice cream.

"The first description of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) was published in 1953. The first suggested shape of this molecule, the carrier of all genetic information, was a triple helix. In the end, crystallographic X-ray imagery and a simple piece of folded paper aided in determining the final shape – that of the double helix rotating about a central axis."

Colors:

Cool Indigo, Pastel Petrol, Sunbeam Yellow, Golden Currant, Chalky Orange, Overripe Red, Soft Pink, Lilac

FRAGILE MYSTERY

Nature paints, shapes, molds and creates its own magic. For the inquisitive mind, it provides an infinite abundance of opportunities to uncover its many undiscovered and hidden secrets. Now is the time to focus on its magnificent rock structures and crystalline formations. They offer shimmering, smooth and transparent surfaces. At the same time you will find rough yet delicate structures of clear crystal, lavender amethyst or sweet pink rose quartz. Take in the soft light-refracting shades of malachite, hard yet tender topaz agates, or unexpectedly frail white gypsum. Tread carefully, however – or you will break their delicate formations! Look, search, and discover with admiration, as you delve into the very depths of their cavernous hiding places.

"A mineral’s crystalline shapes are influenced by the environment in which they grow. They can be formed from hot gases, in hydrothermal vents, or from hot liquids that cool within pockets of molten lava. Crystals are solid chemical compounds. They form into clusters of crystalline prisms, fibers, needles, rays, and lattices."

Colors:

Crystal, White Fog, Gypsum, Snowy White, Purple, Lavender, Pastel Pink, Pink Topaz, Opal Topaz, Milky Malachite

ORGANIZED CHAOS

Imagine that you are floating in the middle of the Milky Way, observing our solar system. In the infinite space of the universe that surrounds you, you see only that which is illuminate by the sun’s distant rays as well as the shadows cast by the celestial bodies around you. Each planet has its own specific color. Admire the deep oranges with their pink and topaz tones of some. Absorb the yellow and green hues of others. The sun has its golden-brown streaks and dazzling hot yellow explosions. The more remote orbital paths light up with flashes of icy grey comets.

"Until the 16th century, man believed that everything revolved around the central, static planet earth. Then, our perceptions began to change and a heliocentric system emerged. We already knew of five planets during Classical Antiquity: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. With the development of more sophisticated astronomical instruments in the 18th century the two remaining planets of Uranus and Neptune were ‘discovered’."

Colors:

Sweet Orange, Cinnamon, Smoky Topaz, Dark Dusty Rose, Milky Cocoa, Ochre, Cool Sun, Tarnished Brass, Basalt, Mint Green, Cloudy Sky

LIFE’S PRIMARY BUILDING BLOCKS

All hues and tones arise from a combination of the three primary colors. They are simple, straightforward, and universal in their depth and richness. When modestly organized and assembled they create a pleasing whole. Smooth vibrant red, deep warm yellow, and cool Pacific blue lead to rich green or wolfsbane purple. Ideally, you can accent them with colors from the opposite end of the spectrum such as creams or earthy browns.

"Cells are life’s building blocks, the smallest functional units of living organisms. A cell can only be created from another cell. There are three primary types of cells, one of which is a eukaryote. Eukaryotes form animals, plants, fungi and protozoa. They consist of a core and tiny bodies called organelles, whose function can be likened to human organs."

Colors:

Oxygenated Red, Pine Green, Aquatic Algae, Deep Ocean, Yoghurt White, Bright Yellow, Banana, Blue Crocus, Amethyst, Sandalwood
