Wishful Green

Nostalgic and fresh, this tinted pastel belongs to the Subtle Focus Color Palette. The soft hue feels sophisticated and inviting, creating a mood that is effortlessly serene. Delicate pastels like Wishful Green can add a note of playfulness on closet walls and in the décor.


A medium-dark shade of cyan, Caribe is engaging and steady. The deeply saturated hue encourages a calm, reflective mood associated with blue while introducing glamor and luxury into the room. When paired with a matte white closet system for high contrast, the deep teal shade adds a dramatic backdrop in your walk-in closet for your clothes to take center stage.
