2. What aqua goes with: Aqua and “Shades of light violet or shell pink pair beautifully. Gunmetal has a grounding effect, making it feel less precious. I love the dichotomy of soft, organic hues and edgier metallics. The juxtaposition is a sexy blend of masculine and feminine.
4. What atmosphere can you create with aqua? Aqua is a “quiet yet imaginative color. it evokes a cool tranquil vibe and plays well to spaces where one wants to feel relaxed and at ease,” Wearstler concludes in TH.
