Posted By Gudy Herder / February 24, 2016 / 107 Comments

This is a really well done guide of Colour Trends 2016 because of its impeccable content and super handy size. I am very happy to announce I have teamed up with NCS Colour and we would like to offer you a printed version of their fab fan-deck.

Get today your Trend Colour Guide 2016 with four wonderful colour trends to watch for this year and 24 standardised NCS colours!

As a general rule, the season’s breakdown of colours has shifted from soft, light shades, towards the extremes of more chromatic, darker, neutral and dramatic areas. Get a glimpse of a couple of trends in this post and see below the conditions to receive the full printed edition of all four trends directly into your mailbox.











All you have to do is following these two easy steps:

1. Leave a comment below the post that you are interested (essential!).

2. Sign up HERE to get directed to a link where you can enter your details.

The first 35 to sign up are the lucky winners and I hope you enjoy this fab guide (this is how it look like) as much as I do! Enjoy your gift and let us know what you think using the hashtag #NCScolourtrendguide2016 and @gudyherder if you like to share your images with us. Good luck! G, x

PD: If you have been late this time, you might want to sign up for the newsletter to make sure you don’t miss offers and giveaways to come soon (actually already next week!).

    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 ;)
