One of the most popular segments in the Plascon SPACES magazine is always the “One Room Four Looks” pages. A lounge is more than just a space in which to sit and watch TV; it is a space where we go to seek respite and to relax at the end of long, busy days. Liezel Norval-Kruger transformed this lounge with just the power of colour into four completely different spaces:

1. Homegrown Haven

In this “look”, Liezel makes use of rustic and handmade elements and lots of South African flavour to create this incredibly relaxing and calming space of neutral colours (also notice how Liezel makes use of stacked, as opposed to hung, artworks for a contemporary look and feel)…

2. Moody Blues

In this space, Liezel makes use of a dramatic blue palette, splashes of white, and some bleached wood – it is paired down, oceanic edginess.

The fabrications of the couches and cushions are all denims and canvases which are extremely hard-wearing and practical, making this an excellent design solution for people with young families and energetic children…

3. Shaping Up

In this space, Liezel uses one of our favourite metallic tones (copper) and sets contemporary/modern furniture pieces and geometric shapes against dusky pinks…

4. Three Colours White

All white interiors can feel a bit plain and uninspiring, which is why Liezel makes use of lots of different textures and intensities to create this summery space…

    What is the colour of the wall in the first picture? I would like to have my walls painted that colour. Thanks

      Hi Roedolf,

      The wall is painted in Cashmere paint, and the colour is Off Shore (EC50)

      Be aware that light and room-furnishings adjusts the look of the colour, and the computer screen also distorts the true colour. Please visit your local retailer and look at the stripe card for a better idea of the colour.

      Regards.
