Editor’s Note: Say hello to our new weekly column that’s all about color: CMYLK! Thanks for all your name suggestions on Twitter and Facebook (“Milkshake” was a close second choice but I think I’m going to save that gem for something else). Each week, we’ll be rounding up some images – products, interiors, and art – and their associated color palettes to inspire and delight. Enjoy!

Last June, we blogged about this colorful house in Torres Vedras, Portugal, designed by Portuguese architect and designer Pedro Gadanho. Given its unique color blocked interior, it jumped to mind when we decided to experiment with palettes. We took three spaces from the project and created corresponding color palettes through Colourlovers, one or favorite places for color inspiration (if you visit their site, prepare to lose at least two hours clicking around!)
