Itching to give your home a bit of a face-lift this summer? The latest issue of Plascon SPACES is for you! It features a host of homes and spaces that have benefited from kaleidoscopic interventions; and for those who are keen to unleash their creative side, there are also a number of trendy paint effects to try.
We are also giving away a beautiful 2016 Calendar which you can hang in your office or kitchen for 365 days of inspiration.
Colour-wise, four fab hues from the Plascon 2016 Colour Forecast – guaranteed to update your home – feature in the upfront section; Plascon’s Colour of the Year, Atlantic Beach, shines in a spread showing you how to introduce the punchy blue into your milieu; a forward-thinking wi-fi company showcases the dramatic impact of an orange palette; a city restaurant chooses a moody blue and wine red to inject some oomph into its interior; and that’s just the beginning!
For the regular One Room Four Looks feature, stylist Liezel Norval-Kruger has conceptualised a quartet of cool wall treatments for student bedrooms that are sure to get a nod of approval from the young ones: ombre vertical stripes in cool blue; geometric patterns that pop with brights; whimsical polka dots for a girly feel; and hand-painted lettering against a stark backdrop.
Julian and Ilaria Louw take you through the steps of recreating three of the stunning paint effects featured in the 2016 Plascon Colour Forecast – from a distressed look that’s classic, yet contemporary, to an otherworldly ombre effect contrasting dark and light hues.
Other highlights include Plascon Colour Manager Anne Roselt’s report-back on colour and décor trends she spotted during her visit to the London Design Festival; our favourite looks from SABC3’s Win a Home competition; a peek inside the minds of two interior decorators; and a trouble-shooting guide for getting your home ship-shape again this summer.
