Nov 20, 2017

Tones of green are combined with glazed ceramics, pops of bright yellow and natural textures to create a contemporary take on rural living.

THE MAIN EVENT

Petite White (G3-E2-3), a signature shade in Plascon Colour Forecast 2017’s Anonymous story offers a pared-down backdrop to a space filled with crafted accents.

GET THE LOOK

● The addition of wood, linen, straw and handcrafted ceramics lend an artisanal feel to this modern interpretation of country living.
