au­tumn puts every­one in the mood for change. Es­pe­cially when it comes to home decor. One of the sim­plest and most ef­fec­tive ways to up­date your space and ex­press your per­son­al­ity is through colour. Crown has a broad range of shades that it is con­stantly in­no­vat­ing, of­fer­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties to cre­ate some­thing unique.

For this au­tumn/win­ter, Crown has de­vised three key colour in­spi­ra­tions, which all feel fresh and dif­fer­ent. Mid­night Gar­den is all about cre­at­ing a rich, dark mood us­ing inky blues, berry reds and oc­ca­sional shots of dusky greys that bring a sense of mys­tery and grandeur to any room.

For those who need more en­ergy, Sat­u­rated takes the earthy shades of the sea­son – burnt or­anges, for­est greens, in­tense blues – but mixes them in bold, in­vig­o­rat­ing com­bi­na­tions. Fi­nally, Washed presents a gen­tle, painterly at­mos­phere that takes its in­spi­ra­tion from soft wa­ter­colours and bleached li­nens for a pal­ette of chalky, muted tones of cho­co­late, sage and mauve. The over­all ef­fect is sooth­ing and re­flec­tive, ideal for win­ter bed­room schemes. All three pal­ettes of­fer the op­por­tu­nity to get cre­ative and de­sign some­thing spe­cial to you. If you’re strug­gling to ex­press what you want, Crown has colour con­sul­tants on board who can of­fer ad­vice on how to in­ter­pret these looks for your home.

But choos­ing a Crown paint isn’t just about stay­ing ahead in the style stakes. The in­no­va­tive breath­easy for­mu­la­tion means it is 99 per cent sol­vent-free, so it is per­fect for use in a fam­ily home. To make your cre­ative mark on your walls, all you need is a few tins of paint, a brush and your imag­i­na­tion. What could be eas­ier than that?

With 200 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence, at Crown, it’s not just paint – it’s per­sonal. For trend ad­vice, how-to videos, sam­ples and in­spi­ra­tion, visit crown­
