The weather might leave you feeling below par, but with the new issue of Plascon SPACES in hand there’s no reason to be gloomy. In anticipation of the 2016 Olympics, we’re channelling the carnival spirit of the host city, Rio, with a punchy palette courtesy of Plascon – and show you how to introduce some of this vibrant energy into your home, of course. The heart of the home is long overdue for an update, so we give a kitchen four funky looks that are bang on trend but totally doable yourself. Add to that cool paint effects, handy DIY advice and gorgeous colour makeovers, and you’re pretty much set for a colourful winter.
The unique aesthetic of Brazil is on the radar of both fashion and interior designers, including SPACES stylist Tina-Marié Malherbe. She creates some gorgeous looks with this theme in mind. SPACES also reports back from the Milan furniture fair Salone del Mobile and the Cape Town leg of Decorex, showcasing the colourful looks we can’t wait to see more of.
COLOUR IN ACTION
This issue’s colourful transformations include a quirky hotel in Namibia, a modern art gallery in Durban and a contemporary bachelor pad in Cape Town. Stylist Liezel Norval-Kruger also shows you how to update your kitchen with four contemporary looks in eye-catching shades from Plascon.
Paint effect specialist Taryn Lee Field illustrates how creating one focal wall with a super-nifty stencil technique can give a space new life, how reviving a rusty lamp base is easy with an old-world antiquing effect, and how bringing a bit of island style into your lounge is a simple as keeping a steady hand.
