Have a look inside - The Summer DIY Issue

What better time to get to all those neglected DIY chores around the house than in the holiday season, when the days are at their longest and you have time on your hands.


On the features front we were seduced by the beautiful vistas from the patio of the Langebaan beach house on page 28. The before and after shots show just how easy it is to transform an ordinary dwelling into something rather special and a gorgeous representation of nature’s colour palette. 

If you have a little one on the way turn to page 36 where a proudly DIY dad shows off the room he created for his pride and joy using brightly painted geometric patterns. 


For this special hands-on issue we called on our panel of paint experts to inspire and delight you with projects perfectly tailored to the holiday season. The striking feature walls on page 46 will breathe new life into your home and we show you how you can transform your front door in an afternoon!  You can also tap into the latest trends on page 20 where we show you how to integrate the season’s most popular hues into your living areas.  And don’t miss our step-by-step instructions on how to paint industrial-chic concrete-look wall art on page 52.

There’s never been a better time to give your home a colour transformation. Grab a copy of Plascon SPACES issue 26 now and pick up a roller this holiday.
