Plascon’s March Colour of The Month: A Berry Good Neutral For Lavish Interiors

Neutrals. The dependable colours (or non-colours) of the décor and design industry. Some dark, some light and some in between, they’re known as the safe option but actually they give us a blank canvas from which pops of colour, texture and interest can be added. As winter approaches Plascon’s March colour of the month, Berry Good (P1-A2-3), is the cool neutral with a slight purple undertone which gives mid-century shapes and tones a modern makeover.

Part of Plascon’s Colour Forecast 2019, Berry Good is one of eight colours selected for the Luxury colour story. Echoing hues of autumn, this richly sophisticated palette features grounded natural colours like aubergine and amber combined with unrestricted tomato red, pistachio green and cool blue. Plascon’s head of Decorative and Professional Marketing, Katlego Kondlo says, “This colour story offers a new take on luxury with the new interpretation extending to a renewed appreciation for life’s simple pleasures. The colours evoke a lavish interior for those who want to enjoy a slower pace of life in a space where comfort and sophistication work hand in hand.”

Calming and soothing Berry Good has a faint purple undertone and is the perfect neutral to bring to life updated mid-century tones like darkly dramatic Black Bean (71), deep purple Dark Antelope (P7-E1-1) and gilded Beeswax Candle (Y1-B1-1) in an intimate yet refined colour clash. Combining it with accent red Burnt Horizon (R7-B1-11) brings a sense of optimism while a masculine and moody feel can be achieved with Black Bean (71) and Winter Storm (B3-B1-2). To finish off that warm lavish look, consider adding textural elements such as a rich floor rug, throws or rounded accessories with a little shine. Furniture designed in the mid-century aesthetic with clean uncluttered lines introduce that retro-inspired edge.

Katlego concludes, “This colour scheme is for those who love grown up interiors. The natural colours all work beautifully together to bring a feeling of wholesomeness and connection in a classically decorated home. What more would you want for your space as we say goodbye to summer and hunker down for the cooler months?”
