Aqua is a shortened variation of the old colour ‘aquamarine’. It is blue with a slight touch of green. When we think of aqua, we think of relaxing in the sparkling, calm waters of the Mediterranean. We feel serene and expansive. Aqua contains the blue of communication with a touch of green calmness. It is a colour featured everywhere in Mediterranean houses and paintings.
Aqua is a colour that everyone can wear. In its strong, clear version it contrasts beautifully with black, grey, orange and deep purple to create a fresh creative look. Go softer if you wish and combine aqua with white, cream or silver. Aqua is a colour that looks fantastic on those with black-brown eyes or deep or dark red-brown hair.
