Sico’s international team of designers, architects and event sociologists chose three colour themes for 2012 that are a reflection of global trends in fashion, politics, technology and the economy. “These themes reflect the diversity of tastes and attitudes we see,” says Mylène Gévry of Sico. Living Scrapbook features a warm, coral red; Delicate Mix, a selection of calming neutrals and One Small Seed is a fresh, modern representation of photosynthesis. This last, curious palette pairs a pale green and deep aubergine with a soft white.
Where to use this paint colour palette
“Colour zoning is an ideal way to bring out the best of these colours,” says Mylène. “The delicate green can be used as the main base colour, while the rich aubergine can be applied as an accent colour, to highlight an architectural feature or to create a visual impact.
