Replicate our cover: geometric focal wall

Geometric shapes aren’t going anywhere; neither are bright, punchy primaries. Channel the energy of the trend with shades from Plascon’s Prism.

THE COLOURS

Dividing the wall in two horizontal bands of solid colour with Plascon Cashmere Deep Sea Reef (B7-B1-1) and white creates a dynamic energy to the space, which culminates in the hand-stencilled geometric prism painted in Pastel Tint (G7-B2-2), Turkey Dimple (R1-A1-4), Lobster Red (R5-B1-1) and Downy Duckling (Y3-A1-3). White, grey and black anchor the look.

THE ACCESSORIES

Contemporary, clean-lined furniture and geometric, faceted accessories act as the supporting cast to the wall design. Stick to basic shades like white, grey and black and use colourful accents echoing the Prism palette judiciously. Keep patterned prints to a minimum – a handful of scatter cushions in different geometric designs will work well.
