Last week, I visited Milan Design Week, which I very much look forward to each year. This is where trends are born, shown to the public and embraced. It is wonderful that colour is a fundamental part of interiors, besides design, fabrics and patterns.
Dementia, with Alzheimer as the most common form, is a cruel disease which robs a human being of their dignity, because it affects their most precious possession, their brain. The good news is that a lot of research has already been carried out in this field. In this blog, we look mainly at recommendations about use of colour.
Earlier I told about the beautiful and special colors and their combinations that pamper my eyes every day in India.
I am a trendwatcher, and I have a problem. For some years now, very little that's new is being produced. The eclectic style is predominant. We seem to have been designed out. For that reason, in recent times I have increasingly been focusing on colour. Colours are the embodiment of a societal trend.
The colour study was carried out for an office building with technical rooms and laboratories. The customer asked to choose light and bright colours which can please the majority of users.
Colour harmony is a term that is often used, by image stylists among others. Colour harmony is more than intuition, and can be objectively established with the right knowledge about the 'who and what' of colour. The best dinner is ultimately also made by following a good recipe, know-how and intuition.
The impact of cube-shaped homes has been attracting my attention for some time now. Usually they are black or white. At any rate, that is what I assumed. Until the yellow cube-shaped stilt houses in Rotterdam came back into my mind.
Did you buy too much? Maybe you did that because of the colour. Colours determine emotions, much more than you think. More than just words, more than pictures, we allow ourselves to be carried away emotionally by the use of colour. So why not try to make use of this phenomenon?
Or how to convert a colour range into ingredients and cook up a tasty dish. I gladly took up this challenge with Els Sirejacob from Elisa Kookt. By choosing your ingredients based on colour, you can come up with some amazing combinations that not only look good, but also taste delicious.
Every year in April, Milan bursts of new and amazing concepts of interior designs. The final (colour) trends are therefore clearly identified.
