The 2016 Plascon Colour Forecast is being launched at Decorex from the 6th to the 10th of August at Gallagher Estate. Here is a sneak peek at one of the colours from the forecast – from the Element palette – a greyish pink called Savanna R3-E2-3.

While pink is not often considered a neutral, this pink with its grey undertone inspired by the earth’s landscape and geology goes beautifully with many colours, especially other earth-inspired neutrals.

In fashion, pink has been a welcome colour in winter – uplifting and adding some warmth to grey and neutral colour palettes. It works just as well in interiors, adding a touch of beauty and warmth to grey colour schemes.

Used on its own as a wall colour, Savanna creates a calm and comforting space. Add natural wood and some industrial lighting to give it a contemporary edge.

Savanna is a great addition to other cool colours like blue as it adds interest and warmth. Be sure to get your copy of the 2016 Colour Forecast at the Plascon stand at Decorex or from your closest Plascon retailer to learn more about Savanna as well as the other colours in the 2016 Colour Forecast.

    What is that gorgeous wall colour in the second photo with the broken mirror and wooden stool?

      Hi Phindi,

      I have consulted with our colour experts at the Plascon Spaces Showroom – please see Zurita’s response below:

      Dear Phindi, you are indeed correct when you call it gorgeous! One of our favourite colours too. It is a colour called Revenge (P1-E2-1). In this instance we used the Plascon product Wall & All which is a multi-surface exterior paint with a low sheen finish.

      It is advised that you first purchase tester-pots and test the colour before purchase of product.
