IJM Colour


Instead of preparing some posts for you I went to De Kleine Fabriek yesterday … a big trade fair for everything kids … and it was such a pleasure meeting Frank Visser from IJM studio… not only was his booth or should I say pop / prop up shop a magical little place showcasing his beautiful colors and paints it was also very nice to be able to chat with him for a little while.

I believe it was a very smart move from the Kleine Fabriek to invite him … he makes the creative difference at a fair like this.

Did you know that IJM has it’s own Paint Collection available for you to order via this website. The site gives you a perfect guidance what color to choose by looking at the inspiration boards. My favorite is JUHU, what about you?






Frank also told me about his second book published at my favorite Belgian publisher called Luster his first ‘Dutch architects and their houses‘ together with Morjam Bleeker was already gorgeous I am sure his second will be a spectacular feast of colors and inspiration.

Enjoy some color inspiration…

    IJM Colour Spots are so great. Very intelligent colour concept in each palette. I love Tokyo Americana, Afrique La Chic and Arizona. Franks creations are very inspirational – also for many other aesthetical areas.
    Until not so long ago i have worked on the corporate design of my online boutique for unique kids fashion, to be launched in a few days. During this process the works of such creative people have been of great help for finding the right way.
    I would be glad, if you stoped by and let me know what you think of layout and content.
    Best wishes,
