If you’re an avid follower of the latest décor trends, the new issue of Plascon SPACES is a must-buy. In it, Plascon shares its 2016 Colour Forecast – a comprehensive guide covering everything from the hues that will dominate next year, to the paint techniques and décor looks that will make your space cutting edge.
Feeling blue has never been more fashionable as you’ll see in SPACES’s feature dedicated to Plascon’s official colour of 2016 – Atlantic Beach – a striking, energetic blue inspired by the upcoming Olympic Games in Brazil. You’ll also be treated to 24 gorgeous pages dedicated to Plascon’s 2016 Colour Forecast, featuring the themes Elements, Heirloom, Discovery and Connect. Primary brights, earthy greys and soothing pastels all vie for the attention, executed in paint techniques including layering, geometric colour-blocking, ombré and bold stripes.
You’re spoilt for choice as far as inspiring interiors go in this issue. We pop into Nando’s Central Kitchen in Johannesburg, where South African design and bold colours in geometric colour blocks have created an energetic milieu; we take a peek into a toddler’s room that utilises striking shades of green and blue in a playful pixelated effect; Plascon’s Colour of the Year stars in a newly revamped inner-city restaurant; and a Dutch couple welcomes us into their countryside home where a striking palette and airy interior combine to create a restful retreat.
The bedroom is a place of rest, but the décor needn’t induce you to slumber! Stylist Liezel Norval-Kruger shows you how to breathe new life into your boudoir using four different looks in striking hues from the Plascon Colour Forecast – the inspiration ranges from the interstellar to the rustic. There’s also a great guide compiled by paint effects specialist Charlie Vettori, showing you how to update the heart of your home with step-by-step projects achieving the likes of a denim finish on kitchen cupboards and an antiquing technique for tiles. As always, the painting experts from Plascon are on board to answer your most pressing DIY questions.
There’s no two ways about it. Plascon SPACES issue 17 is guaranteed to inspire you to transform your home into the trendiest abode on the block.
