Coloriage Adulte: Design Home Book

10/07/2017 – Do you like to play with colours, make simple creations and enjoy hours of fun and relaxation? Have you tried use a Colouring Book for adults?

A solution that gives you a creative way to let go and some effective entertainment!


Once Upon A Time

When I was a child, I was in love with colouring books, and I was quite difficult in my choice of illustrations. I particularly liked the pictures of Sarah Kay or Gallarda.


With practice, my arts studies and now as a working artist, one can say that my paintings are an improved evolution of the colouring books of my childhood. Nevertheless, I sometimes plunge back into a classical colouring book if the pictures take my fancy.

With the new wave of colouring books for adults, we are often presented with mandalas. Personally, I prefer characters, animals or flowers. More recently I fell in love with the Design Home Book by Clairefontaine, and the pencil stroke of Ludovic Jacqz has literally seduced me!

Colouring Pad by Clairefontaine

Clairefontaine offers beautiful colouring pads for adults who are passionate about creation, colour and decoration.

The Design Home Book range is ready to colour with markers, coloured pencils and paint (water-based).

This range is printed on a thick paper, and available in themes of several topics. I’ve found 3 favourites: Boston (female portraits obviously), Flowers and Versailles.

My Colouring Pads in my Studio

Coloured pencils, markers and fluid paint mix easily. The paper is quite thick to prevent the ink from staining the bottom sheet, and this paper keeps its shape after using watercolour.

Design Home Book “Flowers” (21x30cm)

Design Home Book “Boston” (40x30cm)

Design Home Book “Versailles” (17x13cm)

NOTICE: The paper pad is not specially developed for watercolour, I advise you not to carry out the whole colouring in this technique to avoid unsightly effects with the paper.


Great To Know

  • For those who prefer colouring and not drawing.
  • The design is large enough to play with paint.
  • If necessary you can get inspired with some colouring examples inside the pad.
  • Do not think of anything other than your gesture and your colours when you fill the shape.
  • Look for the overall harmony of the subject instead of working on each item separately.
  • Use a protective paper sheet to avoid staining with your colouring with your hand.
  • On the back of the paper do not forget to mention the name of the designer and yours.
  • Once completed, the pictures can be framed and displayed.
  • 2 copies of each design allow you to create great decorations

At the back to my paper sheet, I write: Design/ Ludovic Jacqz – Colour/Amylee.
