Never before have our homes – their atmosphere, aesthetic and ambience – been so important. With people spending more time within their four walls than ever before, the need to feel good in general has become essential.
Plascon, with its finger on the pulse and its ear to the ground, has looked at both this global imperative to ‘nest’ as well as the need for something to look forward to. This, in combination with the overall generosity of spirit and outpouring of empathy that bubbled up in 2020, is what paved the way for choosing 2021’s top hue, Plascon Golden Syrup, which they describe as a warm, sunny yellow that encapsulates positivity, confidence and joy.
