Nature's Prism

Build a grown-up fairy-tale bedroom with rich, luxurious textures and healing hues.

THE LOOK

Vintage charm and much-loved treasures meet coppery metals and the clean lines of contemporary wall art, creating a cosy, restful, light and airy space.

THE TYPE OF PAINT

We used Plascon Double Velvet because of its luxurious velvet sheen finish. It’s also easy to clean and stain resistant. Plascon Cashmere is also a great choice, offering a plush, matt finish, which hides imperfections.

Replicate our winter cover: nature's prism
 Ceramic plate, Stable. Clockwise, from top left: Plascon Double Velvet, Velvet Pansy (P5-B1-1), Ridge (G5-E1-3), Petite White (G3-E2-3) and Nomadic Dream (EC 56).

THE COLOURS

Earth-inspired Ridge (G5-E1-3), from Plascon Forecast’s Terrain story for 2017,
is the green-tinged, restorative lynchpin of this palette, complemented by
other soft hues from the mossy spectrum, like Petite White (G3-E2-3)
and Nomadic Dream (EC 56), and brought to life with a pop of
Velvet Pansy (P5-B1-1).
