Introducing Our Color of the Season: Lime Nouveau

Laura Busche June 16, 2022 · 2 min read

This season, a light, easy morning outside is all we can hope for. Away from screens, nature’s endless shades of green can soothe the sense of overwhelm. It’s been an eclectic year for design: we reminisce over the decades that defined our generation while venturing into a hyper-digital future. Enter Lime Nouveau, a light, zesty hue that expresses that retro-futurist feel.

Here’s a zesty green packed with personality. Next to earthy tones, Lime Nouveau brings that neon, highlighter edge. Our new Color of the Season is also right at home among punchy summer pastels like lilac and orange. Turn up the chroma and you’ve got a swatch to pull together a vibrant acid look. Pair with black and you get that bitmap, Y2K vibe.
