June 2017 Color Alert
RGB: 171,163,47 CMYK: 0,62,100,0 HEX: #aba32f
Allow Capim Santo/Lemon Grass to take you away. A light, breezy green with yellow influences, it offers a refreshing hue, much like its namesake plant.
Its simple, relatively calming nature is a move to simplicity from our frenetic pace. Originally a CMG Latin America color prediction for 2017, it is appearing globally.
From traditional design to modern, this distinct hue will add a quiet energy to colors like, grey, taupe and brown, add a lush addition to a wide range of blues, and contrast with floral pinks and deep reds.
Lush and healthy, look for Capim Santo/Lemon Grass to add its spark of energy to fashion from simple t-shirts to outerwear, and home from bedding to accessories.
