INSPIRATION

How do you manage to make design tangible only by means of pictures?

This is the perfect website for craftsmen, planners and colour enthusiasts. In our INSPIRATION section we provide ideas, tips & solutions for topics related to colour design. We show colours, colour harmonies, facades and interiors, surface techniques, and creative ideas for the use of colour. We tell stories and think outside the box. Emotionally and with a lot of pictures - and all created by ourselves.


We invite you to browse and think outside the box. Click through our issues, or select articles by length or category (Seeing, Feeling, Stories, Practice).

Be inspired!
