Introducing Our Color of the Season: Cosmic Iris

Laura Busche December 22, 2021 · 3 min read

Iris: a flower with sword-shaped leaves, the Greek goddess of rainbows, the part of your eye that lets light in. As we discover what this new normal can look like, here’s a color that captures our quest for the unknown. The curiosity in experiencing familiar places with new eyes. Cosmic Iris is a blue-to-purple hue that takes us to a place of wonder.

Fantasy, mysticism, and longing all come together in our new Color of the Season. Iris can rebloom in the fall as a garden flower, offering a range of purples and blues that evoke calm. As a goddess, Iris brings a certain mythical energy and a desire to return to nature. 

A perfect complement for this season’s design trends like Galactic Escapism and Fresh Antique, Cosmic Iris represents our rekindled sense of awe.

Featuring Iris covered in droplets in bloom by Yuval Helfman, Front Garden Patterns Pack by Nastya Tkachova, Doodle Eyes Spiritual Set by Good Studio, Retrowave 80s & Nostalgia 70s by Oksana Trygub, Psychedelic Flowers by Lana Elanor, and Fancy Feathers by FINEAPPLE PAIR.
