Combining fiery red and calming blue, purple is considered the perfect balance between these two primaries. Lighter more pinky-purples are associated with femininity, peace and calm while darker purples symbolise royalty, magic and wisdom. Plascon’s richly saturated Groovy Grape (R1-B1-1) is a robust, yet light and summery shade of purple - perfect for introducing glamourous poise into your home.


Groovy Grape is part of the Plascon 2019 Colour Forecast Glamour colour story. Featuring restrained core neutrals such as Oyster Catcher (Y2-B2-3) and Nutmeg Dust (O3-C2-2), this fresh and summery colour palette enjoys the addition of feel good pastels like lilac Candy Tuft (P3-B2-1) and sage green Evening Glade (G3-E2-2) with saturated accents such as Mermaid Jewel (G7-B1-3) and Groovy Grape for opulent pops of colour.

The painted front door…

On trend and oh so welcoming, painted doors leave a charming first impression. This is an often over-looked way to convey your personality while also providing a glimpse of what’s inside.
