Architects and designers looking to get up to speed with inspired, eye-catching colour schemes for their projects will find help at hand with Crown Paints’ latest trends.
Colour Influences 2017 is Crown Paints’ way of celebrating its love of colour - and the programme gives specification professionals useful insight into the shades which will shape professional interior and exterior environments in spring and summer this year.
The Influences are produced by an expert panel, assembled by Crown, who join forces to pinpoint the latest colour trends. The team has used its knowledge and passion for colour to produce three stunning palettes, ‘Stillness,’ ‘Fusion’ and ‘Free Spirit.’
“Stillness” is the first palette in the collection. Developed to induce a relaxed mood it features soothing shades of yellow fading into architectural greys, with the subtlety of water colours. The second palette, “Fusion” showcases rich, vibrant hues in a complex, ornamented design. Inspiration for this trend comes from marrying traditional ethnic design with bold colour, with multi-layering for a contemporary look using a patchwork of stencils and vivid shades.
The third and final palette “Free Spirit” is a fun trend evoking a faded 80s Miami glamour. Combining coral and aqua tones it includes the use of quirky shapes to punctuate walls. 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 said: “Colour Influences bring together the latest trends and forecasts to give a fresh and creative perspective to colour"
