Yeah, that's kinda vivid I studied a lot of Indian textiles and patterns and they are incredibly colorful, so that was in my mind. I guess I took a chance. I was worried about the 'Iron Goddess' too, because it's also very bright, though not as harsh as pink+yellow (I didn't want to use the stereotypical red that people associate with China). The 'Earl Grey' is my favourite too
Yes it probably was a risk, it looks nice on its own, but the rest are almost pastel tones - I guess the challenge was picking a colour scheme that matched the rest but still stayed true to the research.
