get you paintbrush

Every six months Maaike Koorman and I develop six color forecasts for Kleurinspiratie, a website made by Sanoma. Sanoma publishes some of the best read interior magazines in the Netherlands, like VT Wonen, 101 Woonidee├źn, Eigen Huis & Interieur and Ariadne At Home.

On the website you can find ideas and tips for paint and painting, you can upload an image of your own house to see if a color would work for you, and you can get new inspiration for colors and see how new combinations of colors can create a totally different mood. On Kleurinspiratie you can read how it works. It's in Dutch, but if you're interested in a translation in English, send me a message.

For the summer we made these six forecasts: Berlin Blues, Ceylon City, Pink Cyclamen, Oriental Industries, Cupcake City and Dusty Boulevard. I'm really happy with these new moods. I hope someday soon people in the Netherlands will overcome their fear to use color, because I can see where I am at the moment, Buenos Aires, that it works just great. More of that later...

And it's also good to see that you can still work together even if you are both on a different part of the world, thanks to Skype.
