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.

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.

Looking around in other countries is a real source of inspiration for me. Discovering how different daily life can be, eating nice food and experiencing a different view of life. Those elements inspire me and extend my horizon.

Besides fashion and trends, nature teaches us how we can use colour in a timeless way. Nature is of real significance for my job as colourist. By observing carefully, we can see how colours are presented, we can feel the movement of colours, the direct effect that colours can have on us and which messages colours can communicate.
