In celebration of the start of the Olympics, and inspired by the jungles of Brazil, the Plascon August Colour of the Month is a tropical green, aptly named Jungle Book (G5-C1-1).
Being the most common colour in the natural world, it is no surprise that – in anticipation of the 2016 Summer Olympics hosted in Rio de Janeiro (5–21 August) – we chose the Brazilian jungle as Plascon August Colour of the Month inspiration.
This dark shade of green evokes elements of nature, which can be used to bring the outdoors inside without having to take a trip to the rain forest.
In the winter 2016 issue of Plascon SPACES magazine we feature a kitchen painted in Plascon Water-based Velvaglo in Jungle Book (G5-C1-1) to create a lush look in the heart of the home (see image below).

Turn your bedroom into an urban jungle by painting a wall in a tropical green hue such as Plascon’s Jungle Book. Add some edge with leafy green and copper accessories.

Besides its appeal to interior decorators, similar leafy shades – namely tropical green – have been dubbed by Vogue as one of the hot colours in fashion for Spring/Summer 2016.
