Purple mountains and amber waves of grain create a mood with a warm color story and rich contrasting textures
Whether you’re designing your next fashion piece or conceptualizing your next graphic design, the Amber Waves mood offers surprising doses of color and texture. Perfect for a moody summer aesthetic, we take a look at the elements that make this mood stand out.
Between grainy wheat, mirror-like oceans, cotton candy clouds, and stony mountains, this mood offers not only a variety but also contrast of textures. Because of this contrast of grassy/glassy and fluff/tough, this creates more interest and brings out the best qualities of each texture.

This palette of warm hues offers an unique combination of feminine colors. Inspired by the setting sun’s rays, pinks are the dominate force in this color story and play beautifully with the colors of field of grain, deep ochre and amber. Reminiscent of the evening sky and mountain tops, purple offers an unexpected pop to this palette.
Drawing from the varying textures for this mood, fabric choices are also richly contrasting. From heavy linen in shades of wheat, to silky-smooth pink taffeta with luminescent luster, to lighter-than-air, wispy pink chiffon, and finally to luxurious and sculptural purple velvet.
