MOOD OF THE MONTH- CELADON GREEN
March is here and it is time to reveal, which color we chose to highlight this month. The color of this month is Celadon green, a special hue of light, pale green that we absolutely love.
The name Celadon also refers to typical Chinese glazed potteries with a type of transparent glaze and light green colour, with small cracks on the surface. Therefore this beautiful green has a strong Eastern influence.
A brief but important distinction: The word “celadon” is used to describe both the ceramics, which vary in tone, ranging from yellow greens to more gray-greens, and celadon the color, which, thanks to web designers and their exacting taxonomy of colors, is precise, defined, and does not vary. According to the Pantone naming convention, celadon is filed under 14-0114 TPX.
Let’s have a look at the whole family of green. What do we associate it with and how does it make us feel?
Greens in general have for many people strong associations with nature and immediately brings to mind the lush green of grass, trees, and forests. Perhaps because green is so heavily associated with nature, it is often described as a refreshing and tranquil color.
Green has healing power and is understood to be the most restful and relaxing color for the human eye to view. Therefore it is often used in decorating for its calming effect.For example, guests waiting to appear on television programs often wait in a “green room” to relax.
Researchers have also found that green can improve reading ability. Some students may find that laying a transparent sheet of green paper over reading material increases reading speed and comprehension.
Green also brings with it a sense of hope, health, adventure, and renewal, as well as self-control, compassion, and harmony
The green color family has been the bell of the ball as of late, starting a few years ago with the rich, jewel-tone shade of Emerald Green, and more recently in 2017 as Pantone's bright lime color of the year: Greenery. Celadon represents a new direction for green and shows you softer side of green - a calming and dreamy one. The thing is, celadon is what we could refer to as a subconscious colour, in that it’s there, but not overtly there. It floats along, gently doing its thing, making a whisper of a statement rather than shouting for attention. It just says, “easy”.
We decided to use celadon in a monochromatic color scheme and paired it with neutrals and greys for a calming, light and fresh interior.
