Tell us about your thoughts on the new colours?
“When I was presented with this project, I wanted to create something timeless. That was my original thought. And then I tried to create a palette of calm yet lively colours that would fit in with the existing colour palette. Tones that would change based on its surrounding elements. For instance, the surfaces of your tables, textiles and most importantly, the room. The room above all”.
What inspired you?
“Drawing on my background as a Textile Designer, I was inspired by the deep nuances of wool upholstery fabric and the idea of connecting and weaving the new colours into the existing colour palette. I wanted to create colours with a long lifespan, that was really important to me”.
What are your favourite colours to work with?
“I love working with intermediate colours, or tertiary colours. They give so much to the room. Not only do they blend beautifully, but they also change according to the inflow of light or shade. Tertiary colours simply give more than solid colours. A bright yellow will never change. Solid colours also claim the room. They don’t give back. Tertiary colours bring calmness, and as a result, they are confident and self-contained. They don’t need to prove or promote themselves. In that sense, they are quite clever”.
