Plascon Trends & Tastes 2011

I promised I would post pictures of the final outcome of the designs and the stand itself. So here they are! It was a great few days and I met a lot of interesting people.
A talented photography friend of mine, Roy Esterhuysen from Firsthouse Photography helped out with the pictures of the Plascon painted buildings in South Africa. (For those who are unsure as to who Plascon is, they are one of the biggest paint suppliers in South Africa.) These are the pictures in the white block mounted frames. Thank you Roy! He will be doing product shots next week, so stay tuned.
I would love to hear what you think.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Wow, I am generally quite conservative when it comes to playing with colour in clients homes. You know the usual, hide behind a neutral colour palette and throw in accent colours by means of accessories? With Plascon, ALL the colours are bright! So it has been quite a challenge and completely thrown me out of my comfort zone, which is great! It has forced my adventurous side to come out and play.

Here are some pics of the furniture pieces I have designed (they are still at the factory and in the progress of being completed). I can’t tell you how exciting it is seeing something you have sketched on paper come to life!

Fun with Colour

I tried something new today, what great fun!
These are some of the paint colours for the Plascon “Love” inspired colour palette, Vibrant Possibilities. 
There are four colour palettes, being Eco Sustenance, Future Fusion, Romance Rekindled and Vibrant Possibilities.  Portfolio has been chosen to represent Plascon at the Trends and Tastes exhibition in Durban this coming weekend, and has been given the Vibrant Possibilities palette to work with.
