I really enjoyed this invitation from Dutch website Kleurinspiratie (=ColorInspiration) to create a color board for them… I choose the color Blue, my favorite at the moment.

a couple of words what colors and especially the color blue mean to me.. "Hier bij de Zee"… just a DUtch song that pops up in my head when looking at the collage above. And that's what colors do to you… they bring a feeling, an association with a memory or an emotion.

Spring is here and summer is approaching, a perfect moment to bring one of the many types of beautiful blues in your house.

Blue stands for fresh and cool, but also warm and funky. If you don't want to over-do it then  just add a small detail. Blue is probably the most universal color and you don't get easily bored with blue.

According to Pantone indigo (the deep dark blue) is the trend for 2012 for interior design. The experts say indigo stands for peace and inner rest. What more could you want? Where black prevailed in recent years it is now time for his lighter brother Indigo. I can't think of a color that doesn't go well with it."

Kleurinspiratie also asked me a couple of questions and my answers are right here in Dutch or the translated version

    Lovely sets of blue! And I love tiles of Claesson Koivisto Rune. I found them also when I was trying to find great things to write about mosaic.
