Written in the Skies, Starlight Express Is Plascon's
Colour of the Month for April

Anne Roselt, Colour Manager tells us more about her choice for the April colour of the month.

One of the 2016 Plascon Colour forecast Colours showing up everywhere including fashion and décor is a beautiful Military green called Starlight Express (Y5-E1-3).

I have never been an Olive Green fan and pretty much dismissed this colour from my personal colour palette (school jersey colour overload) but this military green which has more of a grey undertone than yellow is amazing. I first noticed and fell for it in fashion and then then when one of the design teams on the Win A Home show used it in their lounge I was sold.  Just goes to show there is a shade or tone of every colour that you can love.

If you are looking for a colour to show off artwork then Starlight Express is a great choice. Here it has even been used as a wall colour for an art studio in Italy.

In addition to white, neutrals and greys, Starlight Express goes with almost every other colour, think navy blue, complementary red, pops of yellow and purple. As a paint colour it can also be used in almost every room as well as exteriors, front doors and furniture.

I hope you are as inspired by our Colour of the month for April as I am.
