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 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 you can hang in your office or kitchen for 365 days of inspiration.
Colour-wise, four fab hues from the 2016 Plascon 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 reportback 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.
