The NCS Colour Design Course is an intensive and interesting course in Grypsholm (Sweden) about the perception and interaction of colour and light. Working for a week with colour and light, realising your own project and the interaction with the teachers and others students made this trip to Sweden more than worthwhile.

Colourful projects.

As an interior designer I have had many great challenges to hone my skills in different projects, homes, shops, offices and spaces with specific needs. The colour aspect is often forgotten or has been considered as less important, even though colour can make or break your interior.

Expect the unexpected.

It is nice to see that the latest colour combinations would have been unthinkable a few years ago. Then the colour combinations were more ‘logical’ and therefore also predictable.

From idea to colour.

How do we actually use the NCS system in our paint shop? This interesting question inspired me to create a short stop-motion movie about the process “from idea to colour”.

Rotterdam is known as a real metropolis. The architecture of this city makes it an absolute must to visit and to discover exceptional buildings.

We are also very excited to be present at the Architect@work Rotterdam event with our Elscolab team for the very first time.

How refreshing can it be? Already in 1927 Jozef Peeters created a total composition of colour surfaces in his corner flat, with a view over the River Scheldt - situated on the Gerlachkaai in Antwerp. This colour composition covers the walls and ceiling in a very particular way.

Colour can be, may be and must be!

1st January 2014 saw the start of a brand new project for us: an online calendar where colour is the central theme. Every month we work on a certain colour scheme and a theme: ranging from a nursery to a kitchen, a bathroom or a colourful terrace.

I love to go on city trips. Of course, I do not mean the crowded streets with dozen of tourists and noisy squares. No, I am always looking for hidden spots and the charming piazzas where locals are sipping from their lattés, tasting organic homemade apple cake and where they picked up bargain in that special shop.

We found a nice home. Soon we will also actually live there. It will not yet be painted and it will be only partially furnished. It is more fun to live there first and to find out what you really want along the way. And there is also very little time between getting the key and moving in.
