Plascon’s Millionaire Gold (Y2-B1-1) is our Colour of the Month for June. This beautiful, rich yellow brings cheerfulness and optimism at a time when we need it most.
As we enter the chills and frosts of the winter solstice – accompanied by withdrawn landscapes, lacklustre vegetation and a craving for warm, intimate spaces – the jewel-like quality and hue of Millionaire Gold is perfect for creating “hygge” in your home.
“Some people refer to hygge as an ‘art of creating intimacy’ (either with yourself, friends and your home). While there’s no one English word to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge such as cosiness, charm, happiness, ‘contentness’, security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness.” (hyggehouse.com)
Our Colour of the Month also features in Catherine Raphaely’s new designer board game, Escape from Samsara, which is brought to life using specially selected Plascon shades in correspondence with the colour symbolism of the chakras.
Millionaire Gold is also beautifully complemented with an intense blue, like Oceanos (B6-C1-1). If you feel that this colour is too intense then you can bring in a small accent, like a throw, to add warmth to a cooler colour scheme.
If, like me, you have a “white” house then the below examples are an easy, beautiful way of introducing colour into your home for winter.
Read more about the “bringing to life” of Escape from Samsara in the latest issue of Spaces Magazine – and watch this space, as I have a Millionaire Gold accent wall on the cards for my home which I will share in due course.
From July onward, our Colour of the Month will be brought to you by the Plascon “Designed for Life” colour team, whom we will also introduce in due course.
Have a cheerful, warm and cozy June.
