Paint is an easy way to give any room in­stant per­son­al­ity. And whether you go for this year’s Ul­tra Vi­o­let Pan­tone colour of the year, bold brights or want to mix cool and warm neu­trals, Crown’s range of paints has you cov­ered. Need some in­spi­ra­tion? Here’s how to put a per­sonal stamp on your home.

Try new ways with colour

How about a shot of pur­ple in your bed­room? Trans­form the wall be­hind your bed with a warm, strik­ing colour and echo the look on bed linen. Or find a place in your home for Jun­gle Green – paired with or­ange ac­ces­sories, it’s the per­fect way to achieve 70s style.

For more ideas with colour, Crown’s web­site is packed with in­spi­ra­tion on Au­tumn/win­ter’s in­te­rior trends and ad­vice on how to use new colours and paint ef­fects through­out your home.

in­no­va­tive paints

Crown has drawn on 200 years of ex­pe­ri­ence to de­velop in­no­va­tive paint for­mu­las, too. Its Breath­easy® paints are 99% sol­vent-free and avail­able in most emul­sions. There’s also a Su­per­scrub­bable for­mu­la­tion that’s 20 times more scrub­bable than reg­u­lar matt emul­sion and per­fect for high traf­fic ar­eas like the hall and stairs.

For kitchens, its anti-bac­te­rial for­mula kills 99.9% of house­hold germs on the paint’s sur­face. And for bath­rooms, its Mould­guard of­fers great pro­tec­tion.

With colours and for­mu­las this good, all you need is imag­i­na­tion.
