If a room doesn't get much natural light or could use some visual warmth, yellow is a perfect choice. It’s the most luminous shade and has the added benefit of chasing any chill. Use it to brighten up the space where you and your family gather, and fuel yourselves with a burst of sunshine all day long. You can also add personality to a simple tabletop by painting it in a bold color. Go for contrast and don’t forget to work the edges. 

WALL: ANTWERP SUNSET

'This is the colour of a beautiful sunny evening best enjoyed strolling through Antwerp along the River Scheldt while you gaze at Linkeroever.'
BENT VAN LOOY

VASE: Amstel sky

' Whenever I visit Amsterdam I enjoy taking the ferry across 'Het IJ' to the northern part of the city. Look up, and you will see that the sky above
the Amstel River is quite remarkable.'
BENT VAN LOOY

TABLE: Lime cream

'This refreshing colour evokes lemon frosting on a delicious cake and a cooling breeze on a hot summer’s day.'
BENT VAN LOOY

CHAIR: Merengue

'This hue reminds me of the white, crumbling structure of a deliciously lush meringue in the window of an old-school bakery.'
BENT VAN LOOY

CHAIR: Rue de Maubeuge

'The name refers to a street in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, where my first apartment was located. It was on the top floor with a nice view, overlooking the city. The yellow canopy was always perfect for finding shade on a sunny day.'
BENT VAN LOOY

CHAIR: Miami lemonade

'This colour reminds me of a hot summer’s day in Florida when I was mixing an album and was served fresh key lime pie and lemonade by the pool.'
BENT VAN LOOY

CHAIR: Rusty bike

'The beauty of aging is found in decaying 'rust dye'. When a bike or motorbike is rusty, that’s a good sign. It means that it has lived life to the fullest.'
