Decorate with subtle colours

Keep your interiors cool during the hot summer months by selecting a colour palette that is fresh and inviting.


We take a look at rooms designed by Muse Interiors, for a glimpse into how subtle colours work beautifully to create timeless interiors that stay fresh during summer. Take advantage of Plascon's Inspired Colour System for your next decorating project.

Combining new and vintage pieces upholstered in soft shades of blue plain and patterned fabric, the living space is cool and refreshing, warmed by soft creamy accents.





Simple elegance is the buzz word for this breakfast room. The solid wood table is framed by white painted chairs and lighted by a glass pendant fixture that casts a soft glow. The geometric pattern on the curtains pick up the design of the chair backs, while colourful artwork adds a touch of fresh colour to this space.

Shades of grey and beige form the foundation for splashes of blue and violet accents dotted around the room.


Keeping it cool, shades of white, black take centre stage in the living room, with just a hint of grey and blue.


Cosy and fresh with shades of beige and cream with blue highlights, this room is warm in winter and cool in summer - paint colours that serve for all-year-round. Geometric designs add playful patterns on the cushions and matching chairs.


This almost but-not-quite monochromatic colour scheme is lifted with the birds egg blue on the walls. A black coffee table grabs all the attention. Geometric designs on curtains and cushions mingle with plain upholstered pieces.

A touch of teal lends drama to neutral shades in this formal sitting room. The geometric cushion fabric ties in with the upholstered chair and dramatic artwork above the fireplace.

Take your colour cues from a piece of fabric, patterned curtains, detailed rug, or your favourite artwork. Use the Plascon Inspired Colour System to guide and assist you in selecting complementary colour scheme to decorate a room - or your home.
