This is part of the colour & design surgery series, answering questions from clients and readers.
Question: “My partner and I are in our first home together and have, maybe out of laziness, decided to keep all walls white. You’ll see from our photo of kitchen that the cupboards & appliances are white too. We do love colour and would like to know what we can add to the flat to get some colour without painting the walls?”
- Charlene Hutsebaut
With all this glorious sunny weather there’s no easier way to bring the outdoors in than with plants. Creating your very own natural wonderland indoors… and they aren’t just beautiful to look at, they are good for our health too.
Looking at inpsiring colour and design events, exhibition and tradeshows around the world for May from the UK and internationally.
Having complied my ‘top ten ladies who tweet’ I thought it only fair, well truth be told I was asked “Where’s the one for us men”… so here it is.
Gentlemen who twitter… my top 10. Each of these lovely gentlemen I either know personally or professionally, whose tweets are educational, inspiring and darn right funny!
Do you recognise these shoes and its maker? The one and only Christian Louboutin. The red sole has become so synonymous with the Christian Louboutin brand that you only have to see a flash of red to know it is the much coveted Louboutin.
That’s the power of colour in a brand. No logo, no words, just the right colour placement and instantly your product is internationally recognisable.
Last month Twitter (the micro-blogging site) celebrated their 5th birthday. Stylist.co.uk complied a list of their “top ten famous women who use the site to update us on their lives and work in 140 characters or less.”
In response to this I thought it would be fun to compile my own top ten favourite women who tweet. All ladies I either know personally or professionally, who inspire me daily.
They may not be famous ‘yet’ but they soon will be given their generosity in sharing their insights and support, wisdom and knowledge, all sprinkled with wit and humour.
In the second of my world’s most unusual hotels series, I look at the Pantone® Hotel. The individuality and originality in this hotel is how PANTONE® have used their own colour matching system (which is recognised worldwide) to create a colourful experience.
Continuing the PrimeLocation.com Property Blogs Awards series, this month I’m interviewing Graham Norwood from Property Newshound winner of the Best Blog award.
A must read property website for anyone interested in buying, selling, renting or investing in property.
“I’m delighted and honoured for Propertynewshound to win the Primelocation Best Blog award,” Norwood said. “So much property writing, by industry professionals and journalists, concentrates on the most exclusive homes. They are fantastic but I wanted my blog to look at other issues, too, in a way which informed and entertained, and sometimes infuriated.”
Enjoy an interview with… Graham Norwood.
