Ensure the spaces kids play, work and sleep in are stimulating and upbeat with these cute paint ideas. A declaration of freedom, a statement of expression, a symbol of identity... for the people of Bo-Kaap, colour stands for this, and more. A watery palette of soothing spa colours evokes thoughts of holidays and rest and signals the return of balance and poise to a frenzied world. Problem: your family has grown from four to six in a matter of a sonar scan. Solution: Simply use paint to convert the garage into a kid's bedroom. White is not a mere absence of colour; it is a shining and affirmative thing, as fierce as red, as definite as black... Alwyn Burgers apartment shifts gear from dramatic black-and-white to the muted, soothing shades of Plascons Settled palette. An old barn-style garage became a home in miniature, trimmed with beads and brocade, satin and silk, and with colour used to lay down boundary lines. With the help of Plascon paint, an apartment is fine-tuned for dual functioning as office HQ and hub of the home. How do you promote creativity in a high-stress office environment? With an inspired chill room that is the interior-design equivalent of a smile.
