From Our Colour Box: Rorshach

This week we have pulled Rorshach from our colour box; a scientific & inspired hue from my palette Tender Is The Night, which can be found in Nomad.

Tender Is The Night, as the name suggests was inspired by the famous novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  A story set on the French Riviera in the late 1920’s, that tells a tale of a glamorous couple, Dick; a dazzling young psychiatrist & Nicole Diver; a wealthy & youthful glamour. Tender Is The Night is a tragic & romantic story, an insightful analysis of romantic concept of character.

Rorshach was a test Psychiatrist Dick would use on his patients within the novel, named after creator; Swiss psychologist Herman Rorshach. Rorshach is a psychological test in which the persons’ perceptions of inkblots are recorded & studied. It was a test used to examine a person’s personality characteristics & emotional performance.

Rorshach’s deep yet cheerful orange hue is representative of such colours you can see appear in the Rorshach tests. It is reflective of the bright & punchy hues of the French Riviera in the 1920’s, which is described thoughtfully throughout the novel. The deepness to this hue also reflects the mystery behind the many tales within Tender Is The Night.

Bring Rorshach into your interior with a splash on the front of your shed or garage. Alternatively tell the tale through including Rorshach in a hand painted mural on your bedroom wall. Or bring the French Riviera home with a mix of Rorshach, Monarch & Tendril in your outdoor dining area.
