2017’s colour trends revealed

2016-08-23 06:00

COLOUR is not just a part of life. It is life. It’s how we express ourselves, it influences our mood and it helps us to understand our world.

Every year, Plascon publishes an overview of the latest colour trends in its Colour Forecast.

Anne Roselt, Plascon’s global colour manager and the driving force behind the forecast since its inception, said that as South Africa’s largest paint manufacturer, Plascon “not only has an expert understanding of our relationship with colour, but also how to make using it easy and inspiring in any space”.

“It’s about combining the science behind innovative paint with the evocative power of colour, all grounded by a deep understanding of the South African culture, style and environment.”

About the Forecast

The Colour Forecast is an exciting publication that gives customers an insight into the trends at play, while at the same time making it easy to interpret them in their own spaces.

“Every year, we travel around the globe in search of the latest colour trends and we’re so excited to share them with our customers,” said Roselt.

“We want to really inspire people through the forecast and help them to bring trend inspiration to life in their own homes.

“And it’s by combining this global insight with our deep understanding of the South African taste level, lifestyle and décor preferences that we can create something that is both inspirational and useful.”

The colour themes for 2017

The Colour Forecast for 2017 presents trends curated around four key themes.

These each have a carefully considered colour palette that captures the spirit of the trend, as well as a suggestion of the décor treatments to bring it to life. Roselt said this year’s themes are influenced by the attraction we feel for both the digital and natural worlds.

“Our inspiration this year came from the world we feel under our feet and the worlds we create in our minds.”

Roselt said they’re generally seeing a more minimal approach to interiors.
