I always look forward to Plascon’s annual Colour Forecast – last year their ‘Dusk of Day’ colour ended up in my kitchen – I wonder what will end up in Ask Ashe Abode from this year’s palette?
“Plascon’s Colour Forecasts are a blend of the latest trends both locally and internationally. Each colour plays a vital role in translating the trends that we see in a multitude of industries,” says Anne Roselt, Plascon’s Colour Manager.
For 2014, four key themes were identified and they all fall under one overall theme called ‘Colour Nation’ – referring to the ways in which colour defines our identities, our world and our experience of it.
The 2014 Forecast Themes are:
Urban Tribe – the unique aesthetics of countries like Brazil & South Africa, which showcase a sense of national pride, reflects a warm, grounded palette of contemporary brights, along with gold and black accents.
Second Nature – this combines our busy urban surroundings with the calmer natural world in order to keep our lives balanced. It’s captured in a bright, vibrant palette of greens and blues, activated with bright yellow accents.
