Colour Study

As interiors designers we spend everyday, working in the laboratory of colour. The study and exploration of colour and it's application, is one of endless possibilities + lessons.  Even our most subtle work (albeit muted) is about colour and how it conveys a point of view.  In our much more expressive work (pictured here) rather than whisper, it shouts. 
I love fully saturated colour and am always delighted to use it full strength, when the right opportunity presents its self.  Colour selection always starts with emotion for me, theory defines and expands its execution. But mostly (I think) colour should be fun.    
"Colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions."  
"He who wishes to become a master of colour must see, feel and experience each individual colour in its endless combinations with all other colours." (Johannes Itten)
