One of the 2017 Plascon Colour Forecast colours showing up everywhere, including fashion and décor, is a beautiful military green called Starlight Express (Y5-E1-3).
I have never been an olive green fan and pretty much dismissed this colour from my personal colour palette (school jersey colour overload), but this green has more of a grey undertone and is amazing. I first noticed and fell for it in fashion, and when one of the design teams on the Win A Home show used it in their lounge, I was sold. It just goes to show there is a shade or tone of every colour that you can love.

If you’re looking for a colour to show off artwork, then Starlight Express is a great choice. Here it has been used as a wall colour for an art studio in Italy.
In addition to white, neutrals and greys, Starlight Express goes with almost every other colour, think navy blue, complementary red, pops of yellow and purple.
As a paint colour it can also be used in almost every room, as well as for exteriors, front doors and furniture. Be sure to get the autumn Issue of Plascon SPACES magazine, which goes on sale on 4 April to get more inspirational ideas using this great colour.
