Collection: Botanica Planks Products featured: Moss, Bark Edge

Pantone’s 2021 colours – Illuminating & Ultimate Grey come as no surprise. Following a year of uncertainty and lockdowns– 2021 promises to be a year of optimism, hope and resilience, against all odds. And that’s exactly the mood these colours capture.

Within the design context, grey is dependable and relaxing, creating spaces that feel neutral – both emotionally and physically. Illuminating, on the other hand, works as the apt accent colour when one is looking to lend a dash of personality and uplift spaces.

For Jade, who is one of the Studio’s creative textile designers – the Pantone colours of 2021 served to inspire a stunning custom carpet design. Having recently come across some eye-catching industrial textures and imagery in the Pantone colours during her travels in Melbourne, she knew she wanted to incorporate those elements in her work.

Specifically, Jade was inspired by brick textures, grid work, building blocks, geometric linework…all reminiscent of an urban, industrial aesthetic. With that, she also wanted to come up with a design that looked sophisticated in a commercial setting.

Her creation brings each of these elements together tying the base colour grey with vibrant pops of yellow. A creative but unexpected interpretation.
