My neighbourhood is full of cafés. And recently there’s been a wonderful buzz of activity – adults colouring in. It seems to have become quite a phenomenon that’s sweeping the world.

There are literally hundreds of colouring in books for adults in book stores and stationery shops and with millions sold there must be something to it.

The next big thing? Colour

Blog_the_next_big_thing_colour

Have you ever thought about where the next big thing comes from? Usually, it’s from the shadows. It’s been there all along, but it’s blended in with the scenery and no one has paid it any special attention.

But then something shifts and the spotlight gets turned on it – and its possibilities. It happens in fashion, architecture, and the world of interior design too.

Is Your Client Chromophobic?

Is your client chromophobic

If you’re an architect, interior designer, or in fact any design professional, then September in London means one thing – London Design Week. This year I was honoured to be asked to help co-curate the four colour talk programme at 100% Design.

Other than the two times I was on stage taking part in talks myself, I was sitting front row for most of the other speakers. We had such a high-calibre line up of colour experts, I really wanted to soak up what they had to say.

How exciting, London Design Week is almost upon us. When London immerses itself in all things design, attracting creative minds from around the world.

I’ve been busy working behind the scenes on the 100% Design colour talks programme. I can’t believe it was back in March, by a chance meeting at another colour event (Sean Rogg’s founder of The Waldorf Project with his sensory and intriguing Chapter Two: ‘Colour’) when I met the lovely Claire Barrett from Caro Communications.

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

The colour wheel is just the tip of the iceberg

Colour is one of those amazing phenomenons that’s fascinated man for centuries. So much so there’s specialist colour scientists, academics and researchers around the world coming up with amazing new colour theories and findings all the time.

Interestingly, the new ways of working with colour coming out of the ongoing research aren’t widely known within the design industries. It’s as if we’re stuck in a colour wheel rut and haven’t moved on. But this is definitely changing.

are we walking into a colourless future?

Dulux Colourless Future

Imagine a world without colour. A world of silver, white and grey. If we are to believe the research carried out by Dulux in March the future looks, well, rather dull, drab and dark.

Why were we so in love with colour and felt free to express our colour choices and experiment in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and then to watch it slowly slide into an almost colour abyss from the ‘90’s?
