If you’re the type who wears their heart on their sleeve, chances are you’re going to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the colour red this month. After all, the colour red is known to generate feelings of intimacy and passion…

Others might raise the red flag for heart health in the month of February. Whatever your reason for going red, this vibrant hue is sure to make a bold statement.


Red Rocks

Plascon’s global colour manager, Anne Roselt, chose Plascon’s Lobster Red (R5-B1-1) as February’s colour of the month. Starring in the bright and fun palette from the 2017 Colour Forecast, prism, Lobster Red offers visual appeal that can’t be ignored.



Whether worn or added to your home, red makes a dramatic statement that is a feast for the eyes. In décor, the general rule is to use red where activity takes place, since the colour is physically stimulating and promotes movement and action.

Lobster Red was used on a feature wall on the spring 2016 cover of Plascon SPACES magazine to give it a dramatic lift. The hue was added to this punchy bright geometric focal wall for a vibrant pop of colour.
