Summer Mix

Just right on hot days: delicate powder tones with fresh accents. The ease of living emphasizes structures on walls, in fabrics and on the floor.

Living with watercolors: Refreshing as a snorkel trip in tropical waters! In this living room, pastel shades of aqua and brilliant white help to satisfy the longing for the sea. Structures are also present here: the woven check fabrics, the ribbed carpet, the woven sofa. Its synthetic fibers are even suitable for gardening. The unusual wall putty in powder tones develops its soft shine all by itself.
