Did you know that Plascon announced on Monday that Gold is their selected Colour of the Month? With Christmas and New Year’s just around the corner, I think Gold is the perfect choice for the month of December – very season appropriate.

In the past Gold has often been associated with classical and overly opulent interiors. Until recently even I thought of Gold as dated (“oude doos” as the Afrikaner would say).

There is just something so glamorous about glittery Gold – if it is tastefully used that is.
