Colors Are Important!
Of course when purchasing new products the design and brand choice is very important, yet with there often being a wide range of color spectrums within a certain design, paying attention to a specific color is also a crucial element. Stating the obvious, pale pastel colors create a sense of sweet innocence whilst deeper, richer tones create a more humble, modest and regal atmosphere.
