The Secret Behind Hedge Cornflower Blue

It’s easy to do blue…it’s not easy to do blue well. 

When we decided to add a fresh color to our collection of classic colors: Hedgerose, Twilight and Cream, naturally, we turned to the garden for inspiration.

The actual specimen “Cornflower” is often seen popping up near farms and considered a pest to the crops and therefore farmers…BUT the COLOR…is to die for…friendly, rich and warm (for a cool tone). Not to mention, it is complimentary to our other brand colors!

PS: Interestingly, this color has been a bit illusive to the lens making it quite challenging to capture the true color for our website! Sometimes it shows faint on the screen photographed in late afternoon sun, sometimes it’s too royal under the incandescent bulbs of a studio but in real life, it’s Cornflower perfection.
