What is a colour palette and why does it matter?
A colour palette can be broadly defined as the range of colours used in a visual medium. Although we may not always realize it, colours play a huge role in our daily lives. The colours that we choose to surround ourselves with, whether through our clothes or our other belongings, play an important part in influencing our behaviour and our emotions. Often, the colours we wear are reflective of our mood on that particular day. However, this can be different for different folks as colour preferences are heavily influenced by one’s cultural background and other experiences. But there are certain colours that evoke a common feeling amongst all of us. For example: red is a colour that inspires vibrance, excitement and energy, a colour that commands attention. Similarly, other colours too evoke certain feelings.
Our Design Process
At Softsens, we love designing clothes for your little ones. Whether it’s choosing the fabric or the style or incorporating features that make dressing your baby easy and practical. We also believe that choosing the right colours for your baby’s wardrobe can make a positive difference.

If we’re designing bedtime clothes, naturally we’d pick colours that are more relaxing, calming and soothing.
