One last interior book for 2016? The inspiring and beautifully shot new title by Hans Blomquist – In The Mood For Colour. I suddenly realised I am always crushing on his table and stool top styling. This new book (his third) is an exploration of colour in Hans’ signature style. Moody blues and bright whites, forest greens and hazelnut browns.This book is such a page-turner, I just want to fill my eyes up with more and more of the patina filled rooms and Hans’ styling. I love the signature additions of oversized plants and foliage, twigs and branches. Unusual ideas for storage and how to use every colour from your water colour paint box.I was especially excited about this reclaimed denim table cloth with a raw edge and the hand patterned inky indigo cushion. Oh, I just love it all. The detail images show colour inspirations from nature and vintage collections, If anything this book has taught me to embrace imperfection even more. I love the way these rough walls are painted above. Even more exciting news (I know it’s too much), Hans’ brings his amazing eye for detail and a love of colour and texture together with Bauwerk to create nine new paint colours – inspired by his childhood in Sweden and his travels around the world. Chalky perfection!
