Golden yellows, burlap browns and olive greens suggest the fruitfulness of autumn. Strong solid naturals with bright bursts of colour reflect the transitory nature ofthe season. Unexpected gradations of colour from lightfloors, to dark cocooning ceilings give traditional decorating a fresh spin.
Tips: Don’t be bashful, a ceiling need not be white, adding colour to your ceiling will change the feel of a room dramatically. Crown Colour mixing offers an extension of colour, finish and pack size, with a wide range of the highest quality, extra durable finishes to suit all needs. Contact your local stockist to check if this service is available.
Bathrooms really benefit from fresh colours, citrus tones or crisp aquas (blues or greens) all work well. Always keep in mind that a wipeable finish capable of withstanding condensation is best. In this case we’ve paired “Hot Toddy” Breatheasy Mid Sheen with Pure Brilliant White Kitchen & Bathroom Mid Sheen.
Tips: Not every colour off the shelf will be available in the finish you require so consider the finish you need for the function of the room first. Don’t be afraid to ask in-store for advice on colour, preparation or finish, the staff will be more than willing to help you. Alternatively call Crown Paints on 01 8164400 or email email@example.com
Uplifting citrus tones work best when framed by Pure Brilliant White. Using “Summer Season” Breatheasy Matt in a room with ample natural light, or adjacent to a garden view will create an illusion of open space as well as a feeling of spring freshness.
Tips: Use short pile rollers for smooth walls, long pile for rough surfaces, or smooth gloss rollers for trim and radiators. You might need roller extensions for stair wells or extended roller arms for getting down the back of radiators. Buy brushes of various sizes, to help you get in every corner, and give you a perfect finish. Use large brushes where the roller won’t go, then smaller brushes (such as the edging brush) for painting edges and corners neatly.
Enjoy tea and cakes with “Powder Blue” BreatheasyMatt as the backdrop for this Georgian inspired room. Complete the look with upcycled vintage accessories and furniture with a distressed effect, using “Milk White” Quick Dry Gloss.
Tips: Use matchpots or left over paint on accessories for the finish touch to your room makeover. Check batch numbers on the can. Sometimes colour can vary slightly from batch to batch, if you need to use more than one can mix the two together to ensure consistency.
Crisp and clean Pure Brilliant White highlights this delicate blue front door. Moody Blue from the Crown Colourmix Downtown Collection complements this period home.
Tips: Liquid gloss not only enhances but protects exterior wood, use natural bristle brushes with solvent based paints for a smoother finish.
