Crown Paints has developed three palettes for the Autumn/Winter 2017, to provide architects and designers with inspiration to create personality in their projects.
The palettes, Considered, Intrigue and Patterned Landscape, have been produced by an expert panel, assembled by Crown.
The colours are available in Crown Paints’ high quality, professional brands, Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade, which are all crafted with more than 200 years of knowledge and experience. You can view the colours here.
Crown Colour Specialist, Kathryn Lloyd, is a member of the Colour Influences panel and has worked to ensure the palettes work in both private and public spaces.
Kathryn explained: “The first palette, Considered, is a mature and sophisticated collection of soft, muted tones that celebrate the fluidity of colour. Frosted blues and faded hues of purple and pink are separated by hard lines and geometric shapes.
“The second trend, Intrigue, invites us to look to the evening, bringing with it an unpredictable atmosphere of mystery and drama. This palette depicts colours at their deepest and most absorbing, pairing midnight blues and rich greens, with accents of yellow punctuating big blocks of colour like moonlight on the water.
“The final trend, Patterned Landscape, is inspired by an aerial view of the sweeping countryside, revealing patterns from above. Dewy greens and milky browns are stitched together with accents of white and copper metallic to add texture and bring the landscape to life.”
The Influences programme is one of a series of initiatives from Crown developed to support specifiers with colour. Other services are available, including bespoke colour scheming and a library of sector focussed colour books for environments including healthcare, housing and education.
Crown Paints also offers two CPDs on colour: Colour In Education and The Role Of Colour In Buildings. An area dedicated to colour can be found on the Crown Paints Specification Services website.
