Colour coding

I myself am quit keen on a dash of colour organizing (you can see that right over here) but I love how Hilda from Forever is today has taken it to a whole new level by making monochromatic photographs of her vintage collections. Very inspiring.

Drum roll

Pantone unveiled his coulour of 2010: turquoise.

“Combining the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green, Turquoise evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.”

So here are some inspirations how to make this bold colour work in your home.

Back to the future — Fifties interior book

Once a year our local libary has a sale of their discontinued books, with all profit going to charity. Being always on the hunt for that perfect second hand treasure I am off course present every year. Last time I found this neat little sixties paperback.

‘Het Binnenhuis’ — roughly translated to ‘The Interior House’ — contains 150 pages filled with interior advice and decorating tips. Although I fear there pricelists might be a bit out of date…

Now I have to admit that my attention tends to wander when reading non-fiction but fortunately for me this book is brim filled with illustrations!

One of the illustrations I am fond of the most is the one with the futuristic looking television sets, much beter looking than the current flat screens.

Ring in the new

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s eve.

This year me and the boyfriend kept it very low key, we just had a few close friends over for dinner and afterwards we just sat around and talked, nobody felt like going out in search of a somewhat decent party.

To be honest, I didn’t mind at all. I must be getting old…
