Deep Sea Reef (B7-B1-1) from the Plascon 2017 Colour Forecast is the perfect blue to welcome in the summer. Inspired by the ocean, this cooling and inspiring colour is the perfect choice for a feature wall and is suitable for almost every room in the home.
PAINT A FEATURE WALL
Summer is a time to have fun with colour and to embrace bold design. As seen in the image below, a bold stripe and a geometric shape make a beautiful feature wall. The second feature wall is a scape of Deep Sea Reef framed with energetic strokes of an off-white called Silver Bird (also from the Plascon 2017 Colour Forecast). Sunny yellow accessories add some warmth and brighten up the scheme.
Deep Sea Reef features on the current cover of Spaces Magazine; for more colour inspiration, be sure to get a copy at your book store or grocery outlet.
TIP: When using strong colours like Deep Sea Reef, be sure to balance it with some warm colours. The complementary colour to blue is red, which will not only enhance the blue but add warmth and balance too.
