Five looks we’re loving this spring

Spring is in the air, and with it the feeling of new beginnings. Now’s the perfect opportunity for a fresh start, and with all the exciting trends in store for spring, there couldn’t be a better time. Below, we’ll cover five new looks we’re looking forward to embracing this season within the home. 

CRAFTED™ by Crown Lustrous Metallic Emulsion – Pewter

Silver accents: While brass and gold have long been favourites when it comes to metals, silver is having a major resurgence. From chairs and stools to mirrors and other accessories, silver has captured many a designer’s heart and it’s not hard to see why. Its cool tones make it extremely versatile, adding some sheen without overpowering a space. In addition to seeing more silver on its own, we’re also seeing metals being mixed with a unique effect. Our range of metallic paints has just what you need to get that beautiful glimmer on your walls and woodwork. The shades Sophistication and Pewter will provide a shimmering silver finish that is irresistibly stunning. 

Walls & Ceilings Matt Emulsion- Peek-a-boo-Blue

Bold, colourful spaces: If you follow one rule this spring let it be this: don’t be afraid to play with colour. This spring, bold colours are making a triumphant return to the forefront of design trends, signaling a shift towards more adventurous and vibrant interiors. Experimenting with colour is not just encouraged; it’s becoming a hallmark of contemporary style. From electric blues to radiant yellows, these lively hues offer a fresh and optimistic outlook that revitalises any space. Integrating bold colours through accent walls, statement furniture, or decorative accessories allows for personal expression and dynamic interiors. Try our shades Heartsoul, Peek-a-boo-Blue, Enchanted Ivy, and Happy Daze for walls that pop!

Mixing patterns: Gone are the days of stark minimalism as people are welcoming a new, much more expressive look into their homes. Mixing patterns is in this season, welcoming an eclectic approach to decorating spaces. We encourage you to blend different patterns, from bold geometrics to delicate florals, across a variety of textures and scales, to create spaces that are engaging and rich in depth. This approach not only revitalises interiors with plenty of creativity and colour but also highlights the shift towards more personalised homes. Which is what designing is all about! The key to mastering this trend lies in maintaining a cohesive colour palette and balancing scale and proportion.

CRAFTED™ by Crown Luxurious suede Textured Matt Emulsion- Fawn

Textured walls: Textured walls are big this season, offering a tactile dimension that will really elevate your living space. This trend goes beyond traditional paint and wallpaper, embracing a variety of materials and techniques to add richness and intrigue to walls. Among these, innovative paint effects are gaining popularity, allowing homeowners to create unique wall finishes. Textured surfaces not only add a layer of sophistication but also play with light and shadow, bringing dynamic movement and a sense of luxury to interiors. If you’re interested in incorporating textured walls into your home, Crown offers a range of exciting options. One of Crown’s most sumptuous interior wall paints, CRAFTED™ by Crown Luxurious suede Textured Matt Emulsion provides an enriching, suede textured finish that creates a soft, natural brushed effect on your walls. If you want to add a sleek sheen to your walls, CRAFTED™ by Crown Lustrous Metallic Emulsion provides a stunning shimmering metallic finish to your walls and wood.

CRAFTED by Crown Luxurious Flat Matt Emulsion- Ceramic Kiln

Pops of red: This season, interior design trends are embracing the bold and energising presence of red and terracotta. Incorporating pops of this vibrant hue into your home will help inject life and personality into spaces. From art pieces and furnishings to throw pillows and other accessories, ruby focal points stimulate the senses and evoke passion. Splashes of red not only add depth and dimension to a room but will also help break the monotony in neutral spaces, creating areas of interest and warmth. Try our shades Tufted Kilim, Ceramic Kiln and Velvetine to get the look!
