Dive Into A World Of Calmness And Rejuvenation With A Harmonious Trio Of Blues

Taking inspiration from nature’s blue expanses, Plascon has announced its third annual Colour Combination – a selection of aquatic hues designed to alleviate stress and invigorate spaces.

Next year (2024) sees a new trio of colours emerge following months of extensive research into the zeitgeist as the world recovers from the pandemic years and faces extreme climate challenges. In light of a collective desire for calm, reassuring spaces, Plascon looked to the allure of water to transform our homes – and they didn’t need to look far: South Africa has a profound affinity with this life-giving source, thanks to our thousands of kilometres of coastlines, many pristine lakes and abundance of waterfalls. 

The blues trio

Crystal-clear Caribbean Sea (G7-A1-2) is the colour representing the largest percentage in the design ratio. On its own, this colour evokes sunlit shallow waters on a warm day, while its pairing with the other two – North Beach (B4-B1-1) at 30% and Aqua Pura (G7-C2-2) at 10% – captures the full spectrum of aquatic blues. 

The vibrant warm turquoise of Crystal-clear Caribbean Sea with a green undertone is invigorating, bringing energy and a sense of renewal into any space. 

North Beach (B4-B1-1) is a bold and saturated azure representing the enveloping comfort of the deep without being too cool.  And the gently shaded, blue-green Aqua Pura (G7-C2-2) is the perfect highlight, a pale near-neutral, reminiscent of sun rays sparkling on water. 

Together, this layered and immersive harmony of hues awakens the restorative properties of blue, a colour that research has found to elevate mood and improve feelings of rejuvenation.
