Ultimate Decorative Champion

We are over the moon that our new Crown Ultimate™ range of technologically advanced matt emulsion has been awarded Gold in the Show Stoppers Best New Decorative Product Award at the 2011 Totally DIY Show!

The six Gold Winners and 11 Silver Winners of the Show Stoppers Best New Product Awards were announced during the show's first night drinks party. When awarding Ultimate its Gold for Best New Decorative Product, the judges commented that, ‘This is emulsion, but not as we know it, as it can be used on wood and metal. It's ultra-tough, appeals to the male consumer and creates a whole new market. And all with great packaging and colour card.’

We’re thrilled that the judges have recognized the steps we have taken with Ultimate™; it’s our most innovative paint range ever, and their nod of approval is a real honour for everyone that made our vision for the future of decorating really come to life.


We were at the show from Sunday to Tuesday and our stand looked great. It was full of colour and character and each of the many new products grabbed the attention of everyone that stopped by. A truly successful show!

The full Crown Paints Ultimate range is avaialabe to buy online at B&Q.

Crown Paints ‘Le Petit Palais’ – The Colour of France

There is a rustic side to France with its delicate hues and picturesque countryside; and it’s the romantic idyll of places such as, the Bourgoungre vineyards and the Gallic coast which have provided the inspiration for our latest range – Le Petit Palais®.

Influenced by soft vintage colours, (the kind that are seen in classic French films, such as ‘Le Chateau De Ma Mere’ or ‘And God Created Woman’) we have created a palette that brings the true beauty of rural France into the home.

Those who have been lucky enough to travel through rural France will be aware of the pastel like appearance of the small pretty villages and chateaus and the way that they complement the surrounding countryside, as if nature had intended it.

There are 28 different colours in our Le Petit Palais® range, including Café au Lait™, Rosaraie™ and Blue Ciel™. These soft, matt emulsion colours are suitable for any room in the home and will add understated warmth to your living space.

This range is currently on offer at £10 for 2.5L in B&Q stores across the UK until March 11th – so if you can’t wait until the summer to get your fix of Provence, you can recreate it at home with the help of Le Petit Palais®.
