Educating and inspiring with Crown exterior colour book

  • 27 Jul 2018

Crown Paints focus on colour is continuing, as it launches the new Exterior Colour Book as an essential aid for specifiers and designers.

The Exterior Colour Book, from the Crown Paints Colour Service, will provide guidance and inspiration for exterior decoration projects.

The Colour Book features details on Sandtex Trade, Crown Paints’ external substrate decoration and protection brand, plus the superior wood protection brand Sadolin.

When choosing a colour for exterior projects, personal preference can be secondary to concerns, for example the impact on the local context and the requisite planning regulations.

This is why Crown’s Exterior Colour Book offers information on the built environment, encompassing topics such as historical styles, geology and local materials, regional colours and colour application.

Providing details about how colour interplays with the surrounding environment and architectural styles, the book also includes details of how colour influences people’s sense of place and their mood.

Talking about the benefits of the Exterior Colour Book, Kathryn Lloyd, Crown Paints’ colour specialist, commented: “The Colour Book is a helpful aid for any designers or specifiers tasked with decorating the exterior of buildings and outdoor environments who are looking for colour inspiration.

“But we know that exterior design goes beyond simple colour palettes to consider the context and history of the space.

“For example, using a bright saturated colour on a historic building can be jarring, while using darker colours on large solid structures can make them appear heavy or oppressive.

“Our Exterior Colour Book addresses all these issues and more, making it easier for specifiers to make a considered choice.”

Crown Paints’ Colour Services team can offer expert assistance and advice on all aspects of colour specification, including considerations about colour psychology, information on how to meet specific building regulations and the latest colour trends.

As well as providing bespoke colour cards and a colour library, the team can also guide specifiers through the process of creating individual colour schemes, using computer aided design where appropriate.
