The colours of 2017 PLASCON1

Be inspired by Plascon’s Colour Forecast 2017, which includes the Colour of the Year as well as four colour themes that represent the latest colour trends from around the globe.

Plascon’s Colour Forecast 2017 presents the latest colour trends from around the globe, grounded by an understanding of South African culture, style and environment.

According to Plascon’s Global Colour Manager, Anne Roselt, the four themes are inspired by people’s attraction for both the digital and natural worlds. She further predicts a more minimal approach to interiors. “Not that everything is going back to white,” she says. “It’s just that the use of colour is more pure and single-minded.”

The colours of 2017 PLASCON5For a sophisticated neutral look, the “Pause” theme’s nuanced colour palette includes feminine blush shades as well as grey and blue-tinted updates on classic beiges. A metallic gold accent hints at luxury, while chalky colour treatments, as well as faded finishes and colour panels, add some texture.
