Stemming from the massive landscape of the Scottish Highlands, this theme presents diversified colours of hilly regions. A mixture of greens and browns are combined, merging earth and vegetation colours into one.

Also noticeable was a focus on blues, which is a typical choice for both formal and leisure occasions and of choice for its fineness and profound expressive force, the company reports.
