Plascon DIY Shabby Chic Effect on Expresso
Shabby chic decor brings in elements of romance and antiquity. Common in French cottage decorating, the shabby chic style uses light, feminine colors, such as pink and white, and employs faux finishing techniques to give furniture a weathered, shabby appearance. Shabby chic painting looks best on wicker or on antique pieces with ornate carving. Like other faux painting techniques, shabby chic painting uses glaze to make the paint achieve different effects.

Providing the right products, tools and guidance; helping people transform ordinary spaces into authentic ones. We believe in inspiration. We are driven by passion. We never compromise on quality. We live by authenticity.

Plascon Colour Forecast 2014
The Plascon Colour Forecast 2014 was developed in conjunction with leading design and trend thinkers. After first drawing together key lifestyle, design and interior trends, the concept team then crystallised these in four key themes for 2014. These all fall under the overall forecast theme of Colour Nation – referring to the ways in which colour defines our identities, our world, and our experience of it.
Plascon Colour Forecast 2013
Colour trends are influenced by the mood of society; we are drawn to colours that reflect how we feel. When stressed, we are drawn to gentle blues, greens and neutral colours and when we need a bit of motivation and energy, we crave more energetic reds and oranges. Our uncertain and changing environment has us seeking some balance and harmony in our lives and this led to the forecast theme being called “Balance”.
The Plascon Colour Forecast 2013 consists of four palettes — Simplicity, Contrast, Pause and Dare. The colours in these palettes are designed to help you bring balance and harmony in your home.
