Using warm yellow tones really lift the spirits and can bring a sunny disposition to your home, whatever the Irish weather might bring.
Tips: Use plastic sheeting to cover paths and other objects you don’t want to get paint on. Roll slowly enough to avoid splattering go in as close to the edges as possible. Before reloading or changing pack always try to find a natural break, such as a corner or plinth.
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
Using colour schemes inspired by nature can trigger all sorts of memories and emotions. This theme, inspired by Autumnal colours implies a cosy getaway as the nights close in. Solo Mid Sheen “Amber Glow” paired with “Cocoa” have been used to create this snug refuge.
Tips: Colour perception changes in different lighting conditions so begin your selection with some colour cards, shortlist your favourites and then try a matchpot in the actual room. Choice of finish can affect the atmosphere of a room, higher sheens reflect more light; matt absorbs it.
A warm and welcoming atmosphere is essential when entertaining. Rich, historically inspired, colours in a flat matt finish set the scene perfectly. This look is achieved using “Elegant Mode” and “Middle Lavender” from the Crown Colourmix range, along with Antique Cream Quick Dry Gloss.
Tips: If you need a finish that’s not available in your chosen colour many outlets offer a paint colour mixing and matching service. Splashes are dangerous things – especially if you’re painting around carpet or an expensive piece of furniture. Dust sheets are inexpensive and really are a worthwhile investment.
