Anne Roselt is the Global Colour Manager at Kansai Paints based in Durban, South Africa.
As a commerce graduate her real passion for colour started when she joined the Marketing Department of Kansai Paints in South Africa over 20 years ago. She broke service for a few years to join Angel interiors London as a decorative painter working on commissions from a manor house in Canada to the late King Hussein’s Palace in Jordon.
Fascinated by the power of colour transformations, she obtained a diploma in Colour Therapy for Interiors and was fortunate to learn from world-renowned colour therapist, Theo Gimbel. In 1999 Anne returned to Kansai Paints and launched the first Colour Trend Forecast in South Africa. She went on to launch a paint effects range, the first décor magazine dedicated to colour – Spaces, the Colour Design Awards and has designed colour collections for both Plascon and their customers.
In 2001 Anne was invited to be on the trend panel of the London based International Colour Authority and later the trend publication The Mix.
Anne’s mission is to highlight the beauty of colour , making sense of it and to inspire confidence in choosing colours for a happier life and home.
