We’ve really come a long, long way from being a scared painter and here it is my handpicked colour palettes for Asian Paints Colour Code. This was my first commissioned photo project and man, I couldn’t have been more excited to shutter bug it out. Read on to know the palettes, the inspirations, the colours and about Colour Code: an inspirational tool for architects and interior designers, using thematic visuals as the starting point to explore colour palettes.
This image is from the series Gorgeous Golds where I have tried to bring out a contemporary palette and you can see them here I am putting a snippet of how I have paired the colours and shades from Asian Paints here, you can visit Colour Code website to see more.
Inspiration for Gorgeous Golds: Blessing, wealth, Pride, Love, a good beginning, investment, security, coming of age, affection. Ours is a culture that celebrates gold like no other. Gorgeous Golds celebrates our innate love for this precious metal and explores palettes that make it shine like a thousand million suns.
Honestly, I loved working with products. I don’t call myself a photographer but I can whip a good photo or two you know 😉 Talking about photos, this photo is my absolute favorite. Chiefly because it was not staged at all. It was inspiring, it was spontaneous and it was so me! I’m a strong advocate of curating inspirations from everyday things and this was perfect.

This is from the theme “Dreamy Whites” under the main bucket “Connoisseurs”- haha, well if you know me, you already figured out why I chose to work with whites for the connoisseur bucket. It’s so evident- I don’t even have to tell ya!
Inspiration for Dreamy Whites: Inspired by the wanting of peace; inspired by fleeting moments of country bliss in the hustle and bustle of city life and guided by the beauty of all things frugal and simple, dreamy whites explore white as a colour, and as a fabulous background for instilling laid-back luxe.
Similarly I have worked with 3 other themes: Vitamin Sea (A sea inspired palate) under “Mood”, Very Vintage ( A retro-vintage palette) under Personality and “Everyday Exotic” under the bucket “Inspiration”. You can check all of them here
