Divas Spotlight: Plascon Colour Forecast 2012
Divas Spotlight: Plascon Colour Forecast 2012

Plascon has recently brought out the colour forecast for 2012 inspired by the different ways that we bring colour into our lives.

The forecast consists of 4 different palettes: Memory, Expression, Mystery & Origins.
 
Memory links to the past that is always evident in design, this year the spotlight is on the Georgian period. In using soft pastels and grounded by neutrals and darker tones. The use of this palette brings a sense of sophistication and romance into a room and can be paired with antique pieces.
 
Expression  is a palette about celebration, with bright vibrant colours such as the Union Jack inspired red, bright blue and white. White is often used as the base of the theme and it is paired with the bright uncomplicated colours which brings in that sense of fun whilst making a statement.
 
Mystery is a combination of neutrals with highlights of rich plums creating some depth in the palette. A contemporary look with clean lines and uncomplicated pieces compliments this palette. The theme is contrast with maximum impact whilst still keeping its simplicity.
 
Origin has taken to going back to basics with the expressing the love of raw textures, patterns and materials. Ochre yellows and light wood-inspired browns show an earthy base to the theme and then the accents of light neutrals and blue-grey top notes. Once again stunning for an uncomplicated space where simplicity is key.
 
With Plascons eye on global trends and a mind for the local market, this forecast is perfect for a fresh start to the close approaching year of 2012, so start planning your renovations for the new year and keep this in mind and to download the full Plascon Colour Forecast 2012 click here.
