Plascon National Colour Week

Every year Plascon shows the ways to enrich our lives with colour. This year Plascon celebrates colour with a week-long festival from 1 to 7 September, 2014. This festival is an opportunity to stop and think about what the colours in our world mean to us and the powerful effect that colour has on our lives. In conjunction with Plascon Colour Week,  Plascon is challenging everyone to perform Random Acts of Colour. See below for details...


Plascon challenges you to  perform Random Acts of Colour. Why not...  paint the walls of a school, plant some colourful flowers for an old-age home, repaint an old piece of furniture, or buy some balloons and colourful sweets for underprivileged children. There are some wonderfully colourful prizes for the best and most creative Random Acts of Colour, including Le Creuset daily giveaways and Plascon paint.

Plascon is placing emphasis on the use of colours  from Plascon  2015 colour forecast that was unveiled at Decorex Johannesburg earlier this month. These themes fall under the broad theme of Celebrating Colour, and all of the energy, warmth and inspiration it brings into our lives:

Urban Glow evokes an atmosphere of mystery and contemplation, inspired by sunrise and sunset over the cityscape.

Natural Balance continues the trend for earth-inspired themes in interiors.

Vivid Expression is a celebration of excess, with bright colours uniting in one story and reflecting a world of abundance.

Tailor Made delights in the everyday and explores a quiet luxury, where simple design is valued for its honest and thoughtful approach.

"We take the colours in clothes, food, architecture and surroundings for granted, but it's worth reflecting on the role that colour plays in our lives and how it shapes our emotions and reality. For that reason, Plascon is encouraging everyone to think about how they can enhance their lives and those of others with a splash of colour. Our themes for 2014 hint at a colourful year for South Africa with a sense of freedom, optimism and plenty of positive energy. They also show that paint effects are making a comeback but in new and surprising ways." says Anne Roselt, Colour Marketing Manager at Kansai Plascon Paint.
