Jedno od mojih najvećih uverenja je da se sve boje slažu. Kad sam bila mlađa, sestra mi je često govorila da sam se obukla kao cirkus ili polucirkus. Bilo je i malo istine u tome.

Kažu mi i da se koordiniram kroz boje. Svaki deo mog dnevnog rasporeda ima svoju boju u kalendaru, koja se menja u zavisnosti od raspoloženja. Naravno da pišem flomasterima u raznim bojama, jer treba uskladiti sve te nijanse u mislima i informacijama koje se beleže u svesku sa veselim koricama. Nije svejedno.
Opet, razumem i umem da uživam i u svedenosti, belinama, širinama sa bojom prisutnom u samo nekoliko tonova. Jer nisu boje uvek vatromet. Boje su prostranost, praznina i mir. Kao kad gledamo iz aviona nebo, neku veliku vodu ili šume bez kraja.
Kada bih birala posao iz snova, definitivno bih bila specijalista za boje, pa bih savetovala koju nijansu kada i u kom slučaju izabrati: od automobila, keramičkih pločica, cipela do lakova za nokte.

Zbunim se uvek malo kad neko krene da mi objašnjava da se neke boje ne slažu. Crna i teget su mi savršena elegancija, a narandžasta i ružičasta čista radost. Dobro je da moda uvek traži nove izvore inspiracije, pa tako promeni i poneko uverenje o bojama i slaganju.

Volim sva ta uklapanja i preklapanja boja i vidim ih svuda: od scena na ulici, preko korica knjige ili sveske, hrane, filmova do garderobe. A najviše volim preokrete, akcente, male vizuelne drame u tim scenama. To su trenuci kada, umesto sklada i slaganja, od koga me hvata blaga dosada, srce poskoči od čiste radosti zbog te prave doze neočekivanog, drugačijeg i nekako taman nesavršenog.

Osećam da svaka boja i nijansa nađe pravi put do nas baš onda kada nam je potrebna. Moj plavi zid u dnevnoj sobi je od prošlog leta zaista moje veliko plavetnilo i inspiracija. Malo boje za zid lako napravi mnogo inspiracije za život.

Rekonstrukcija igre, Aleksandar Dimitrijević

Sloboda izbora je u svakome od nas. Birajte boje i umetnička dela tako da vam prijaju, da vam srce zaigra kad ih vidite i da iz vas izvlače ono najbolje.


Marija Simeunović, arhitekta i hedonista, obožava umetnost i kuvanje.

Kada bi mogla da bira idelano zanimanje, bila bi ekspert za boje. Zapisuje slike o prostoru, koje se pojavljuju sasvim slučajno. Duboko veruje da su enterijeri deo nas i da se menjaju zajedno sa nama.


One of my strongest beliefs is that all colors match. When I was a little girl, my sister used to tell me I looked like a circus, or half-circus. I admit, there was some truth in that.

People say I coordinate myself with the help of colors. Every part of my daily schedule is marked with certain color in the calendar, which changes depending on my mood. Of course I use marker pens in different colors, since I need to coordinate all those tones in my thoughts and the information I diligently write down in my notebook with bright covers. It is NOT all the same.

Then again, I do understand and appreciate minimalism, white spaces with just a dash of color. It doesn’t have to be all fireworks all the time, right? Colors are harmony, wide horizon and peace. Like the vast sky seen from a plane, an ocean or an endless forest.

If I could choose my dream job, it would definitely be a color specialist. Then I would give advice on when to use a particular color shade: from deciding on a new car, ceramic tiles and shoes down to nail polish.

I get a bit confused when someone tries to tell me some colors do not match. For me, black and navy blue symbolize perfect elegance, while orange and pink denote pure joy. I am glad that fashion is always searching for new sources of inspiration, so sometimes it can change someone’s opinion on color coordination.

I adore all that color mixing and matching and I see it everywhere: on the streets, book or notebook covers, food, movies, wardrobe. And most of all I love the unexpected twists, accents, the little visual drama you discover if you look close enough. These are the moments when my heart jumps with joy because of the right amount of something unpredictable, unique and just a little bit imperfect, instead of the harmony and concordance which can, quite frankly, become slightly boring.

I feel that every color and shade find us when we need them most. Since last summer, the blue wall in my living room represents my Big Blue, my inspiration. A little color on the wall easily harbors a lot of inspiration for living.

Reconstrucion of the game, Aleksandar Dimitrijevic

Freedom of choice lies in each one of us. Choose the colors and art pieces which make you feel good, which make you happy whenever you look at them and bring out the best in you.
