Design 101: Colours of Misona

In a world consumed by consumerism, it's now more important than ever to look for products that can serve us for years and work well in different settings.

Durability and reliability should always be a top priority - especially when it comes to bathroom products.

But there is one more thing that often gets overlooked. It's versatility.

Of course, certain products are designed to play a specific role - that's all fine. But apart from functionality, another incredibly important factor is aesthetics. Just as fitting in regular spaces as it is in luxurious bathrooms.

After all, a product should blend in and complement the space it’s meant for instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

This is where design, or more specifically, the colour palette can make a world of difference.

But it's not just about the looks either.

Colours can be powerful tools. They are known to have a direct impact on our emotions and thoughts, according to many researchers. Sometimes referred to as 'Colour Theory'.

Let's first stop here, before we dive into the specific colour options of our products.

Colour psychology – is it an actual science?

The psychology of colours has been a topic of interest for many generations of researchers – with different results. Unfortunately, this area is extremely hard to define. 

Trivia time – do you know who first tried to take on that challenge in his book entitled Theory of Colours?

It was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Yes, the very same – German artist, poet and politician.

Of course, since it was mostly based on speculations and intuition rather than solid research, and he focused mostly on mood and emotion - his work ended up being ultimately disregarded by the scientific community.

Nevertheless, the ideas he put forward did attract and influence philosophers, like Arthur Schopenhauer.

Moreover, it inspired future researchers to give this subject some more thought. To this day, it’s a hot topic for artists, marketers, and scientists alike.

Interestingly, the idea of colours having the power to affect our health, both mental and physical, is actually very old.

In ancient China, they used colours as a kind of therapy to heal specific pains and ailments.

Our Colours

Now back to the point. We designed our products with that very idea in mind - a perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics.

Our absorbent bath mat selection or our bamboo bath sheets are prime examples of this philosophy. 

Picking the right shade is important and certain colours can evoke positive qualities that promote rest and feelings of calmness while adding a perfect accent or finishing touch to various bamboo bathroom accessories and other decor elements.

Now, without further ado, let's explore some of the most interesting colours available at Misona together.

Cornish Blue 

Let's start with Cornish Blue - a colour we use for our natural bath mat selection.

Inspired by the traditional blue used in Cornish pottery, this vibrant colour, with its slightly greenish undertone, originates from the picturesque town of St. Ives in Cornwall, England.

It also has a rich history in the ceramics industry of Cornwall, dating back to the 18th century.

Cornish ware, as it's often called, is associated with timeless and elegant coastal themes. Much like all the best things in life, it draws inspiration from nature.

It imitates the crisp waves of the ocean and bright blue cloudless skies.

Admittedly, Cornish Blue is on the bolder side of things, but in our view, it doesn't make it any less appealing.

Duckegg Blue

Another captivating option is Duckegg Blue.

This light blue pastel shade has a certain dose of understated refinement and calming, idyllic-like aura about it, which is why it's such a popular choice in interior design.

Why duckegg? That term came from the colour of eggs laid by certain duck species.

With its classic appeal, duckegg blue is an absolute staple in shabby chic or vintage-inspired décor.

Compared to the deep, darker tones of blue, the lighter shades of duckegg blue is a popular choice for those who like to feel calm as they unwind in the bathroom, as this stylish hue gives the room a clean and classic feeling.

Colour psychology states that duckegg blue towels can bring a touch of serenity and elegance to your bathroom space.


If you're a fan of warm and earthy colours with a slightly more vibrant twist - ochre is the way to go.

Slightly darker than the primary colour of yellow, tones of ochre range from pale yellow to deep orange-brown, ochre derives its name from the natural pigment found in clay.

Ochre Organic Cotton Bath Mat

This one actually has a long history that dates all the way back to prehistoric times when it was used in cave paintings and ancient artwork.

Ochre is associated with nature, warmth, and a sense of stability and tranquility. Our organic bath mats and bath runners are available in that colour. 

The bright colours of ochre are a popular bathroom colours as it will lighten up the room and make a big difference to the overall atmosphere of the bathroom.

Off White 

This colour is the perfect choice for a clean and timeless aesthetic.

Either used as a perfect backdrop for your bathroom or to be implemented through towels and accessories, these neutral colours are a timeless choice.

It's a kind of white shade but has a slight tint or undertone.

Off White offers unmatched versatility, which is why this neutral shade is currently taking the world of interior design and fashion by storm.

It's crisp and clean - a perfect choice for modern spaces, or those looking to style a small room. It also offers soothing psychological effects and brings that sense of warmth and softness that traditional white is sometimes missing.

Another important thing that only adds to its versatility is a wide variety of different shades of off-white available - creamy, ivory, beige, and more.

With so many options, you simply can't go wrong.

Neutral tones are also a great choice for towels as they can seamlessly complement any colour scheme.


If you looking for a little bit of that rugged sophistication, then you need to give khaki a chance.

This light brown or tan colour with a hint of green has its roots in the British colonial era. In fact, it was initially used for military uniforms.

Khaki has since become widely recognised for its utilitarian aesthetic, and now it's a real staple of any business casual to casual outfits. There's even a pair of trousers named after this colour!

What about the name? It comes from a Hindi word, which directly translates to dust-coloured.

There are actually quite a few different shades of khaki. The one we use for our towel line is closer to a very elegant dark olive green.

Dark green hues are often associated with indulgence and luxury, so if you're looking for a way to implement a small premium touch into your bathroom space, our ultra soft khaki towels may be the way forward.

Blush Pink 

With this very gentle shade of pink, you get a touch of softness and luxury.

Quite often, it has a slight hint of beige or even peach, which gives is that fresh quality.

Blush Pink has become wildly popular in recent years, with several different hues to choose from.

It's everywhere - from fashion and weddings to houses and interior décor elements. No wonder, after all, it offers a soft and elegant touch that just radiates subtle feminine energy.

Bring creativity to your bathroom by sprucing your interiors with at least two colours.

Blush Pink also looks stylish paired with different colours such as a neutral grey or darker tones such as a navy blue, which is neighbours to pink on the colour wheel.

This contrast in colours can create a welcoming space for your guests, which will cater to everyone who visits.
