On trend with Plascon SPACES 8 and the 2013 Colour Forecast

13 August 2012, Cape Town: The 8th issue of Plascon SPACES  – a magazine dedicated to showcasing and translating the latest décor, design and colour trends using colour and paint – hits shelves today. The major focus of The Trends Issue is Plascon’s 2013 Colour Forecast. In celebration of the annual Forecast, readers will also receive a Forecast brochure and mini colour fan-deck for hands-on creative inspiration.

“In this trends issue of Plascon SPACES we reveal the much anticipated 2013 Colour Forecast and feature details on the newest, hottest colours and palettes. We ask 20 local creatives to give us their predictions on colours and design in the upcoming year and there’s a jam-packed line-up of gorgeous homes, real  makeovers and on-trend paint techniques for your home,”  says Plascon Spaces manager Anne Roselt.


Based on theme “balance”, the Plascon 2013 Colour Forecast pages draw inspiration from four colour palettes - Simplicity, Contrast, Pause and Dare.


Says Roselt, “We hope all our readers can identify with a palette that will help them achieve harmony and balance in their living and working environments.”


Spaces issue 8 features predictions on décor and design trends from some of South Africa’s top creative experts, including fashion designer Malcolm Klûk, interior designer Michele Throssell and some of South Africas leading décor editors. Tying in to the arts-and-crafts trend, the magazine also features 4 gorgeous, step-by-step guides on some of the latest paint effects.


The regular ‘Real Space’ case studies include the much talked about (and magically colourful) Jaci’s Lodge and a gorgeous Jozi makeover in gleaming metallics. The firm favourite ‘One Room Four Looks’ feature boasts a quartet of contrasting bedroom looks – one each for the four distinct palettes found in Plascon’s 2013 Colour Forecast – that can be easily replicated at home.


Whether your aspiration for your home or office is a  renovation or  make-over, Plascon SPACES issue 8 is the inspiration you need to get cracking.  For more information on Plascon SPACES, visit or pick up a copy at Woolworths, C.N.A., Spar, Exclusive Books, Builders Warehouse and other general retailers.
