Crown Paints has revealed the latest colour trends, offering inspiration for the autumn and winter months ahead. Under the paint manufacturer’s Colour Influences programme, designers and colour experts have curated three colour palettes for autumn and winter.
‘Out of the Dark’, ‘Skyscapes’ and ‘Faded Berries,’ provide a wealth of ideas for specifiers to create a stunning effect across commercial and residential environments, and in public space. The first of the three palettes, ‘Out of the Dark’ features a dramatic and daring edge - relying on the use of dark colours to make a strong colour statement, and then applying an expanse of contrasting tone to turn it on its head.
The second palette ‘Skyscapes’, is inspired by a natural landscape, and uses layers of tonal colour to create an ethereal, magical look – and it illustrates just how versatile blue can be. The final palette from Crown Paints’ Colour Influences autumn/winter 2016 is entitled ‘Faded Berries,’ which sees nature take on a robust and moody persona.
Every year, Crown Paints invites its panel of designers, colourists and trend forecasters to identify the influences that will define the colour landscape for the year ahead.
