Cyprium theme

Cyprium is a low contrast colour scheme inspired by the landscapes of Cyprus (my home country) as they appear during the transition from spring to summer. It comes in light and dark variants, while using a single 16-colour palette.

Packages or ports of it are available for Vim and Atom, as well as the Xfce4, RXVT-Unicode (urxvt), and XTERM terminal emulators.
