Tuscan Wall – Plascon’s Colour of the Month, April 2018

By Zurita Moore, Plascon Digital & PR Manager


As we shift into our first change of season for 2018, a quote by Albert Camus comes to mind: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”

I have a few trees outside my window at work, and here and there I can start to see the yellowing of the leaves. The evenings are cooler as well – leaving no doubt that autumn has arrived.

Inspired by these first stirrings of seasonal transformation, I chose this lovely autumn yellow, Tuscan Wall (Y1-B1-2), for our colour of the month.

To add warmth and coziness to your home, introduce some of this rich, opulent yellow into your décor, a feature wall, or even a whole room.
