Crown reveals its new seasonal colour trends for A/W 2019

  • 24 Oct 2019

Crown Paints has announced the launch of its new collection of colour trends for the 2019 autumn and winter season, helping to inspire new ideas in interior design.

The new colour trend collection, made up of ‘Botanical Noir’, ‘Unprocessed’ and ‘Pigment’, has been created to empower professional decorators, designers and consumers to embrace different colour palettes and painting techniques. The collection has been devised by Crown’s expert panel of colour consultants and specialists.

Each of the individual schemes has been given a distinct and inspirational identity, with hero shades, complementary tones and style suggestions included so they can be easily adapted to suit a variety of projects and different personal tastes.

Taking inspiration from the enduring trend of creating a link between interior and exterior living spaces, ‘Botanical Noir’ is a celebration of nature within architecture, using forest green and teal shades used alongside pops of pink and metallic gold. This trend lends itself to the use of strong geometric, botanical prints and natural foliage, making it both stylish and versatile.

‘Unprocessed’ was also inspired by the natural world, but here, the more earthy colours of terracotta, dusky pinks and powdered clay have been embraced. This palette moves away from clean lines and highly polished finishes and instead works well alongside rough, raw and organic materials.

The use of colour as an artistic tool has led to the development of the ‘Pigment’ trend which aims to evoke the sense of a traditional painter’s studio. Here textures are as important as the colours themselves, with a faded chocolate and moody plum used alongside metallic rose golds and granite top greys, and applied using layering and the classic loose painterly technique to add depth and interest.

Jemma Saunders, colour specialist at Crown Paints comments: “Each of our design trends aim to introduce new colours and styles and to change the way people think about interior design by equipping them with a greater understanding of the emotive side of colour and how certain combinations can improve both the look and feel of a room. Our trends are inspirational and inclusive and can be used in their entirety or in part, allowing plenty of scope for individuality.”
