In his book In Praise of Shadows, which calls for a return to modesty in interior design, Tanizaki Jun’ichiro writes of “walls the color of sand” that are discreetly painted with shadowy colors. “The hue may differ from room to room, but the degree of difference will be ever so slight; not so much a difference in color as in shade. […] And so it has come to be that the beauty of a Japanese room depends on a variation of shadows.” There is no better color than this one for the purpose of realizing such a color concept.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
