As the evenings start to cool and leaves start to change colour, Plascon looks to Mother Nature’s Autumn guise for inspiration. This season, Plascon has created a calming colour palette that celebrates the radiance and power of nature’s earthy tones and embraces living in the moment.
Plascon’s new Sunset Shadows palette draws its inspiration from rich greys while celebrating vibrant yellow, calming green and warm terracotta tones. These colours are versatile and give you the freedom to create both vibrant, energetic combinations and calm, grounded combinations. The Sunset Shadows collection embraces the warm African landscape allowing you to carry the palette from within your home to your outside spaces. Embrace the change in season and update your home to reconnect with nature.
The foundation for Plascon’s Sunset Shadows palette is two of our favourite greys Paris Paving (GR-Y09) and Geneva Morn (GR-Y01). Speaking to Plascon’s Nozipho Kunene, who heads the Colour Advisory Service, she highly recommends these two shades as they are neutral and versatile and work with any number of colour combinations. Inject spice, enthusiasm and vibrancy into your home with the rich, terracotta tones of Plascon Free State Earth (01-C1-2).
Or harness the deep green shade of Plascon Ocean Grotto (g1-E1-4) to bring balance and calm. Plascon’s Favourite Hue for 2021, Plascon Golden Syrup (Y2-B1-2), will bring both a literal and figurative glow to your home. Whichever combination you create, you are sure to feel the power and grounded energy of nature through this earthy palette.
You can tint the colours of the Sunset Shadows palette 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 energised from this natural palette, but also from the improved quality of air. If you are updating your exterior space, tint the colours of Sunset Shadows into Plascon Micatex. Plascon Micatex is significantly more durable than conventional paints, giving it the strength to protect your exterior walls from the harsh South African weather and general wear-and-tear of everyday living.
