I love hearing about colour research projects so when I was told about this multi-lingual colour naming experiment I just had to check it out. So why not get involved and participate in their online experiment!
The Colour Group UK is an interdisciplinary society of scientists and colour professionals concerned with the measurement, reproduction and perception of colour. The group’s primary objective is to encourage the study of colour and to promote the education of the public on colour.
Paint companies are all about selling colour. So how do they make sure their colours attract the right customer target market and ultimately make those all important sales.
September in London is just back to back with interior and design tradeshows, exhibitions, seminars. You name it, it was happening!
I headed straight to 100% Design as there is always a great mix of products from leading local and overseas designers, as well as showcasing the up and coming. I picked out a range of products to give you a flavour of what was on show from the practical, the quirky, inventive and the unexpected…
How many times have you decided to do some decorating but realised you weren’t sure how to calculate the quantity needed. Here are some handy tools to help take the guess work out of how much paint, wallpaper or tiles you need for your DIY projects.
This is part of the colour & design surgery series, answering questions from clients and readers.
This month is slightly different as I’ve had a burning question myself …
Have you noticed over the years how paint names have been getting more emotive, fanciful and sometimes just plain silly…? I was really curious how paint companies choose their colour names. Given that I work with the personality, whether that is a business or a person, I suspected this may be part of the story with paint companies too.
In the 4th of my colour in nature series, I look at how nature creates colour in diamonds.
I was prompted to write about this given in October Christie’s New York will auction a very rare, highly saturated 32.77 carat ‘fancy vivid’ yellow diamond.
Yesterday I had the privilege of meeting and being interviewed by Viv Oyolu, the creator and radio presenter of Dream Corner. Dream Corner is focused on women, and Viv’s goal is to spark or rekindle a dream or passion that any woman has had, and inspire them to do something about it.
Each month I search out inspiring colour and design events, exhibitions and tradeshows from the UK and around the world. September certainly makes up for a quiet August. Here in the UK September is the month for designer trade shows, events, exhibitions, talks, lectures, more than enough to keep any designer, architect, stylist on their feet and coming away overflowing with new inspiration and ideas! An exciting month!
