We love trends but there are certain colours that remain favourites, no matter how much time has passed. Our Plascon colourists are well aware of these classics and have selected 108 favourite colours and put them into a special Plascon Paint Essential Collection called “The Essential Collection”.

The Plascon Paint Essential Collection includes beautiful whites, greys, neutrals and colours that are easy to use in any design project. Here is a look at the collection divided into different sensory moods – please note that the colours may change depending on the calibration of your computer screen. Check the actual colours in-store on the new Inspired Colour stand.

      Hi Reena,

      Thanks for visiting Plascon Trends.

      The Essential Collection Colour Book was recently produced by Anne Roselt who is the Plascon Colour Manager from the Plascon Spaces Showroom. You can contact Anne or one of her colleagues (also mentioned in the article) directly at the following email: spaces@plascon.co.za

      Or else give them a call on: 011 467 8693/4 – they will be able to give you the individual swatch names, or send you higher-resolution images, or to direct you to the nearest distribution point for the Essential Collection Colour Book if you would like to browse it in hard-copy print form.

      Kind regards.

  2. Hi there. I wonder if you can help me. I am currently renovating my house. We are almost reaching the painting stage. We would like to paint the interior of our house with either plascon orchid bay or plascon antique petal. Would it be possible to send us some pictures of interiors that were painted in the above two colours so that we can decide which colour to choose. Thank you very much.

      Hi Rivash,

      After consultation with our colour experts at the Plascon Spaces Showroom, the Showroom Manager has responded as follows:

      Herewith some inspiration for you (attached two images): Please remember that light plays a very important role in the way that the paint colour would look on your walls. Please purchase tester pots and test the colours on your walls before you make a decision.

      Antique-Petal (GR-Y05)
      Antique Petal (GR-Y05)

      Orchid Bay (GR-Y06)

      Hi Estelle – thanks for visiting Plascon Trends 🙂

      Here below are the swatches (Sombrero and Papyrus respectively) as requested:

      Please note: Digital rendering of swatches may vary on different monitors and may vary from the actual dry paint colour. It is advised to purchase a tester pot (250ml) or 1 litre of the colour and paint two coats over white to view the full colour (before you make your final purchase).

      Kind regards.
