Colour plays an important role in my life.
Which is why I call myself a colour ‘fundamentalist’.
This means, amongst other things, that I ‘need’ colours to be coordinated – and that I can spend a lot of time making sure they are.
This is most obvious in my wardrobe. I’m often decked out monochromously: wearing one colour at the time – two at once is about my maximum. That doesn’t mean I wear one shade of colour only: the fun bit is precisely to combine different tints & hues which make up an harmonious whole. And I’m always delighted when I find a scarf which enables me to wear two colours the match of which didn’t come to me naturally.
Especially in winter I’m always surprised at how little colour there is to be seen in the streets. In Belgium, where I live, winters are generally grey, why would we want to strengthen that colourlessness?
The interior of my home also testifies to my colour fundamentalism. Each room has a distinct colour & its attributes contribute to the overall colour scheme, again with the hope of many different hues creating harmony. A friend long believed that I changed clothes every time I went into another room. That’s taking it a bit far 😉
But I must admit that my books too are arranged by colour.
Colour is undervalued.
I would be delighted if I could make you think and act differently about something that can add so much joy to your life & those around you.
