As we step into Summer, there is buzzing anticipation of hot, balmy days and excitement for summer vacations. Plascon has created its latest Summer colour palette – High Frequency – to encapsulate this optimistic energy.
Plascon’s High Frequency emulates a refreshing poolside sip of lemonade on a hot day with its vibrant and zesty colours. The energetic colours of the Summer palette will work for both individual and group needs, in any space or place.
The power of colour does not always lie in specific hues, but rather in how they are used to evoke responses. A mixture of playful and bouncy colours and balanced, cooler neutrals, this new palette strikes the balance between bringing increased energy levels and excitement without overpowering the senses.
Plascon Lime Miss (Y6-A1-2) is the key colour in this palette. A fresh lime green, this bright and juicy hue is equal parts vitality, growth and new beginnings. It also nods to nature, with South African summers being synonymous with days spent outdoors.
Plascon Monet Magic (B3-A1-1) is a bright and powerful shade of blue that offers a complementary depth to the brightness of Plascon Lime Miss (Y6-A1-2). Send bolts of energy into your home with this bold blue shade.
Pair these bright and vivid colours with Plascon French Chartreuse (Y5-D2-3), a neutral colour that reinforces the bolder shades by taking on their characteristics. Alternatively, opt for the slightly cooler grey of Plascon Off Shore (GR-Y03), another neutral complement to the brighter hues of the palette.
Sitting playfully between the fresh green and blue shades and the calming neutrals, is Plascon Be Mine (R2-A2-1) – a pink that is brighter than a pastel without being strident. Bring a lighthearted feel to your space with this fun, flirty colour.
The colours of the High Frequency palette can be tinted in Plascon Double Velvet Pure – Plascon’s advanced coating with ground-breaking, air-purifying technology that neutralises the harmful effects of formaldehyde emitted from fabrics, engineered woods and furniture in your home. This means that not only will you feel renewed energy from these zingy and reviving colours, but you’ll be breathing an improved quality of air.
