Seeing as it’s the start of a new month, I figured we could all do with turning over a new leaf of good intentions to put into practise to re-adjust the work/life balance. As a freelancer, I am especially guilty of working long hours; all evening, all weekend, and with the introduction of smart phones, it gets worse. Hands up everyone who immediately checks their phone at the sound of that incoming ping of an email? ALL of us. This little video not only reminds us of what’s important in life but also what’s not so important. It has nice graphic illustrations and a pleasing linear theme. Also notable is the rather lovely paint palette that seems to be very relevant to the popular colour theme coming out of this year’s Milan design week. Now, you might want to turn the sound down a bit as it’s a trifle intense (unless electronic-techno-meditation is your bag) but a rather nice piece of work anyway. A good way to say hello to May. Here are my top nine interiors paint colours to match the video.
