Summer may be a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean you should banish all thoughts of colour from your life. In the autumn issue of Plascon SPACES magazine, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to delight you with some of the latest colour trends and paint techniques that you can use to brighten up your home while the leaves turn golden-brown outside.
JUST DO IT
For starters, consider revamping your braai patio with painted mosaic tiles, as instructed by artist Lisa Swanepoel, or turn your hand to creating an ombré wall that’s sure to add interest to any room in the home. Else take the advice of décor maven Annemarie Meintjes and reinvent an old photograph canvas as a brightly coloured pin board.
The theme of Silence has been getting attention both at home and abroad, so don’t miss our story on this movement and how you can use it to good effect in your home. If that’s not enough to motivate you to pick up that paintbrush, our story on one room with four different looks will seal the deal. In this issue we transform a single space into four distinctly different hobby rooms using colour as the defining element.
To get you in the mood to add atmosphere to your environment with colour, page through our feature stories on a gorgeously revamped Cape office done in neutrals with pops of Plascon brights, a vivid Bishopscourt home, a magnificent public mural in Johannesburg, and an array of holiday accommodation that celebrates Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Greenery.
