Get In An Opalescent Mood: DICHROIC

Posted by in Discover, On Trend |

DICHROIC color palettes are prevalent today, featuring prismatic color shifts with iridescence and shimmer. Inspired equally by nature and science, the opalescent quality to these color tones offers varying sheen and subtle changes in hue, yet remains deep, saturated, and chromatic. We see this movement toward pearlescence in many different types of materials in architecture, fashion, fabrics and building materials. With connections to holograms, feathers, and the Aurora Borealis, the Dichroic palette is organic yet mysterious and other-worldly.
