Crown Paints have revealed
their latest colour trends, which offer inspiration for the autumn and winter months
Crown’s Colour Influences programme
has devised the palettes ‘Out of the Dark’, ‘Skyscapes’ and ‘Faded Berries’
providing a wealth of ideas for decorators looking to give their clients some
ideas and inspiration regarding the latest on-trend shades.
Crown Trade Paint Skyscrapes Palette
‘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
Black and charcoal grey are
dominant in this look, forming solid blocks of tone that are interrupted by
strong blasts of bright yellow, pink and orange.
‘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.
Accents within the trend include sophisticated grey and
chalky neutrals, which perfectly enhance the blue gradations and offer a subtle
nod to clouds, mist and rocks.

‘Faded Berries’ sees nature
take on a robust and moody persona.
This atmospheric influence
captures the intensity of nature as it matures and evolves, evoking a landscape
characterised by wild heather and untamed foliage.
By setting the richness of
deep heather tones against mossy and grassy greens, the palette takes on a
decidedly untamed aesthetic, celebrating a nature that is faded and wild rather
than restrained and pristine.
The berry and green tones
are complemented by neutral accents which bring a softness to the overall look.
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 and keep any space looking stunning.
