Chicago Skyline is probably one of the most recognizable in the world.
Choosing a color palette that reflects the mood and essences of a Chicago skyline can be daunting, even when you consider the number of possible combinations.
We all know that there is a lot more to Chicago Skyline than glass and stone buildings; one of the great things about it is that there is practically an endless set you can play with.
From morning to night, the job becomes much easier though when you have something to draw from, which is why we encourage you to look at our collections for inspiration.
