‘Colour is becoming more and more important in the decorating industry and our Colour Influences bring together the latest trends and forecasts to give the trade a creative advantage’

Colour Influences 2017 is Crown Paints’ way of celebrating its love of colour and gives the decorator three dramatic new palettes to inspire interiors – all available from Brewers' network of 150+ stores.

The Colour Influences programme gives the trade 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’  all available in the Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade ranges at Brewers.


Developed to induce a relaxed mood it features soothing shades of yellow fading into architectural greys, with the subtlety of water colours. 


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.

Free Spirit

This 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.
