While we love the boldness of the lehti prints, we also believe wholeheartedly that, with the right color scheme, the serenity of the design would serve as the ideal addition to any little girl or little boy's room. With this in mind, we started or color experimentation. For a little girl, pink was the natural choice. Here, we didn't want to go with anything too cutesy, rather we wanted something with a bit of a vintage feel to it. We played around with shades of vintage pink but somehow couldn't get it to provide the cheerfulness we wanted to portray. We moved towards salmon shades and found a soft salmon hue that derived from a mix of orange a pink. Initially we had decided to keep the leave forms darker than the background, but ultimately we concluded that it was too overpowering. In the end we opted for a pale salmon pink background, keeping the leaves light and airy.
