Anne Roselt, Plascon Colour Manager
The new Plascon Spaces magazine hit the shelves this week. This issue is focused on Plascon’s 2013 Colour Forecast and has a forecast brochure, as well as a mini fandeck included in the issue.
The magazine aims to provide lots of colourful inspiration, information on trends, makeovers and “How to’s” – here is a taste of what you will find.
Inspiration is from the simplicity palette. Whites, off-whites and deep greys help to clear our mind of clutter and refresh our soul.
One room, four looks – see how the same bedroom can be transformed with colour! Here are two examples. The first bedroom is painted with Plascon Cashmere Plaster and the second bedroom with Plascon Cashmere Stardust; both colours are from the 2013 Colour Forecast.
Jaci van Heteren from Jaci’s Safari Lodge decided against going with traditional earthy tones for her lodge in the Madikwe game reserve, rather she chose to celebrate the vibrancy of the bush with bright uplifting colours. Here are just two pictures from the article on the lodge.
You don’t have to be an artist to create some of the trendiest paint finishes. Easy step by steps show you how to achieve this cross stitch and paper cutting design. Other paint effects showcased in this issue include how to paint faux plates and crochet lace.
Plascon Spaces is available from Woolworths, Spar, CNA, Exclusive books and selected retailers at a cost of R19.95. You can also check out the Plascon Spaces website.
