The germanized colour name 'apricot' is based on the 'Savoir-Vivre' in France. The name means zest for life and the need to be happy. The colour Apricot is like a warm summer day: joyful and bright, soft and light. The sweet idleness in one colour shade and our colour of the month of June.
Apricot is nor a primary colour but a combination of red and yellow. Like all orange shades, this colour stands for zest for life and creativity. In contrast to the strong orange shade of the citrus fruit, the apricot shade is softer. Mixed with a lot of white, a delicate shade with a romantic undertone appears from a warm tone. As an extravagant alternative to pink, brides often choose roses in apricot for their wedding bouquets.
The basic colours yellow and red make a colour shade representing warmth and light from apricot. So, apricot-coloured walls create a friendly ambience - as if the sun beams of the south wake up the morning with a kiss. That is why apricot is a fantastic decorative colour that spreads a good mood at home.
In the assortment of KREUL, the colour can be again found in the KREUL Acrylic Gloss Paint and the KREUL Chalky Markers. In such a way, we can make the toy chests in children's rooms amusing eye-catchers. The kitchen will become a trendy hot-spot with quotations on boards in 'frosty apricot'.
