Friday saw the launch of our SS15 Colour Influences, where, during our press preview in London, we unveiled the latest colour trends to a select array of media including Living etc, Homes and Garden and Ideal Home.

Each year our team of Colour Consultants, Colour Specialists and Designers bring their knowledge and creativity together to discuss latest trends and the influences that will shape and inspire colour for the new season ahead.

A celebration of individuality and colour, Crown Paints’ Colour Influences aim to inspire homeowners and encourage confidence with personal colour choices. So, here’s your sneak peek into how our trends are shaping up for SS15.

Playtime, the first of our SS15 Colour Influences, delivers a soft, sophisticated colour palette that can inject fun into interior spaces.

Unashamedly pretty, this trend brings together soft sherbet tones, mixed with harder, more structured lines and strong edges.

Organic Discovery, a burst of energetic colour, is our second colour trend. A homely balance of botanical brights and tranquil, cooler yellows, blues and greens – this palette will define and complement both interior and exterior spaces with ease.

The final influence is Freedom of Expression – a celebratory fusion of fluid shapes and colour – ideal for those who dare to be bold. This trend showcases brave ways of using super brights and rich tones next to each other, adding character to interiors.

While most designers at Paris Fashion Week offered us a futuristic silhouette, Valentino’s collection revealed a vintage theme – highlighting that a step back in time is sometimes the way forward.

The looks,abundant with colour but not too bright or gaudy, helped distinguish a seventies style that showed how to experiment with colour – reinforcing an element of fun for winter fashion.

Colour wise, the seventiesera goes hand-in-hand with the upcoming autumn months,as it incorporates the warm rustic colours of falling leaves. Think oranges and yellows contrasted against cooler blues and greens.

This retro feel can be easily translated from clothing to your home by combining Crown’s warm tones of Old Gold, Copper Canyon or Hot Toddy – beautiful when teamed with lots of lamps, throws and cushions.

This palette creates a cosy colour-filled room, without being over-powering and settles charmingly into the upcoming seasons.

As the long summer evenings fade away and autumn draws near, it’s finally time to swap flip flops for wellies and boots, and think about ways to make your home cosy and warm.

his transitional season is jam packed full of warm tones, from the oranges and reds of falling leaves, to the earthy brown conkers on the ground – they create a palette perfect for any home.

To add warmth into any room, combine Crown’s Chocolate Suede and Glazed Satsuma with Snowfall, a colour scheme that truly reflects the transitory nature of the season – great for snugs or living rooms.

If a whole room overhaul isn’t for you this autumn, simply refresh interiors with nice throws, warm fabrics and cosy pillows – a simple way to create a big impact.
