Crown Paints has reinforced its position as the expert in colour for professionals with the launch of its renowned Colour Influences programme for 2016.
Colour Influences forecasts the shades that will shape professional interior and exterior environments in spring and summer.
Under the programme, Crown Paints’ team of colour specialists have curated three stunning palettes, each featuring exciting options that enable specifiers to inject creativity into their projects.
Three styles have been produced, ‘Sun-Drenched City,’ ‘Light and Shade’ and ‘Shimmer’.
The colours are available in the high quality, professional products within the company’s Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade brands, which are all crafted with over 200 years of knowledge, experience and passion.

Crown Paints Colour Specialist, Jemma Saunders, is a member of the Colour Influences panel and has worked to ensure the palettes inspire bold ideas in professional interiors.
Jemma said: “The first palette, Sun-Drenched City, brings to life yellow hues, accented with pink and greens. Texture and strength is achieved with flashes of metallic copper, concrete grey and charcoal to give the palette structure.
“The next, Light and Shade, features a distinctly architectural edge and is defined by light and dark shades, which form an oppositional palette of rich browns and chalky tones.
Finally, Shimmer reinterprets how we use pastels by exploring the relationship between light, colour and texture, featuring hard and soft colours mixed with opaque and transparent surfaces.”
Jemma is part of Crown Paints’ Colour Services Team, which offers specialist colour advice for specifiers.
Accessed through Crown Paints’ Specification Services team, the Colour Service is on hand to offer expert assistance to professional customers of Crown Paints.
The service includes bespoke colour cards and a colour library. Interior schemes can also be completed using computer aided design, as well as face to face consultation, depending on the scale of the project.
