  2. Colour is essential in our day to day life. It evokes emotion and stimulates. Thanks for this blog post its wonderful.

  3. Gorgeous looks – its so exciting to see contrasting shades used together is such an innovative way 2016 is looking to be a turning point in colour in the UK – bring it on.

  4. I’m always interested in what you do, love to be inspired by you:)
    And also very interested in this great Color Trend Guide, I do prefer the physical tools in my work with colors :)

  5. This looks like a very informative, inspirational guide for the new trends. I particularly love the contrast of Luxe metals with worn urban surfaces. Would love to have a copy please!

  6. Me encanta la 4ª tendencia, Rich and Sensual!
    Me ha chocado un poco el amarillo mostaza, pero en la foto que has puesto, da tal punto de alegría y foco…que me ha dejado inspirada!!!

    Love you work!

  7. Ay Gudy, creo que llego tarde, pero aún así me encantaría tener la guía para el proyecto en el que estoy metida. Un besazo!

  8. Hi, Gudy:

    It was impossible to post a comment until now, the page showed as not found… And I tried at 9:30 o’clock!

  9. Un Industrial orgánico y un desafío para la mujer…a tus paletas solo les falta el olor, y aunque no llevo mucha suerte últimamente con giveaways, te agradezco tremenda inspiración lanzada al mundo…ahí vá..deseo..deseo…

  10. I love how your trend reports give such a interesting and beautiful atmosphere to the colours and moods that are being forecast-ed.

  11. I wish to thank you for all the great posts you deliver into my inbox though I’m sure I’m too late for the printed trend reports. That doesn’t matter, I loved the pictures here on this site as well.

  12. I love your posts! As a Color professional, I find pretty much everything you do inspiring and essential in creating great trend palettes!

  13. What a fantastic guide to color. I love this. Thank you so much for this. Would love to have one. Also, thank you for all of the valuable information you provide for your subscribers. MaryJane

  14. lol, I think Im a little bit late, but anyways this and everyone of your creations are great! So Im very interested!

  15. Despite the amazing response ( way beyond the 35) I wanted to add my thoughts here – as a Dutch boss of mine once said ” never shoot always miss” – this scientist turned floral artist is now incredibly interested in colour – its impact is huge – your insightful articles are really useful in illuminating that for me – thank you – oh and if you have a spare colour card I’d love one ;)

  16. me too please! can’t believe I missed this post – shows how busy life has been as I’m usually right on it when you send something through. Maybe you can persuade them that we all deserve one? thanks

  17. Looks beautiful and would massively help me through my final year degree. Invalueble resources from an inspirational resource.

  18. Oei..I see there’s 95 comments before me. But I just got your mail. Maybe I can still fall in the running?? :) Would be very interested.

  19. Dear Gudy, i follow you since a long time. And I really love your research on design! It wouls be great to receive the guide! (Hoping It’s not too late). Daniela
