Today I spotted the combination of yellow and blue on the streets. Color consultant Fabienne Bruyninckx spoke about these colors, which are symbolism for optimism and resourcing, during the Piet Hein Eek day. Apparently my mind is now more aware of all the different color combinations around me. This bright yellow even made the dirty trashcan look optimistic! Take a look at the bright side of life! Get inspired by the streets.

I tried putting some color to my neutral home, and these colors are the only ones I tried (so far) – another link for me. For the Histor & Piet Hein Eek challenge I even painted my cupboard partly ‘resourcing’… I hope the beauty of these inspired you to look with a different eye on daily objects 🙂 So today is not only inspiring, also a bit teaching (for those who didn’t knew it).

Enjoy my ‘inspired by the streets’ color swatches and some of HK Living products, which match perfectly!

PS: In my previous ‘Inspired by Street Art’ article I mentioned Bansky, the street artist. The flowers, which are clipped to the fence in the back of the photo, are part of one of his well-known art pieces.
