“Colour can be key in creating building designs that resonate with the people that live, work, and play in them.
Whether it’s using cooler tones to reflect natural surroundings or highlighting a design feature like exposed metals with vibrant colours, the right hues can embolden designs to help them promote a positive emotional response.
We have a passion for colour and its use in design. As part of our aim to help architects, designers and specifiers paint their own possible, we’ve created a range of resources to help.
Our curated colour pallets for spaces like university accommodation, hotel bedrooms, and workplaces of the future, show how architects, designers and specifiers can use colour to reflect specific space requirements.
Meanwhile, inspiration from our Interior Colour Book – a part-educational, part-visual resource – will help anyone looking to explore colour in all its forms.
The book encompasses everything from inclusive colour and colour psychology to paint application and how colour has evolved and changed over history. Coupled with our colour samples and colour matching tool Colourkey , it can support all your colour needs.
All our colour inspiration and services have also now been collated into one area. Crown Paints Professional gives architects, interior designers and specifiers a clear view of the different ways we can support your projects from start to finish.”
