Prepare to swoon as Crown Paint have revealed their key colour trends for the Autumn Winter 2019

We sat down with Crown Paint's colour influences team to get the latest trends for AW19 and we want to redecorate asap. 

From wabi-sabi inspired hues to shades inspired by botanicals, we've rounded up the experts' top looks for autumn/winter. 

Trend 1: Unprocessed

Inspired by Wabi-sabi, a Japanese philosophy centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection, the Unprocessed colour trend similarly resists the neat precision of modern life and instead celebrates the natural world, just as it is. 

The palette draws colours from the earth, including baked earth terracotta and sun-bleached wheatgrass. Altogether the colours are raw, untreated, layered and yet perfect together as a whole. 

Justyna Korczynska, from the Crown Design Studio, explains: “In the era of diminishing plastic we turn back to basics, rediscovering raw natural materials and the earthy tones they bring with them. Powdered Clay is a hero of this colour palette and unprocessed rough surfaces are appreciated for their natural beauty.”

Trend 2: Botanical Noir

Then 'Botanical Noir' trend highlights the relationship between nature and architecture, with a combination of fresh greens and warm gold finishes.

Kathryn Lloyd, Crown Colour Specialist, explains: “Botanical Noir explores the way nature and architecture are intrinsically linked. Geometric structures reflect architectural lines whilst the organic forms of the foliage provide a soft relief. The glimmer of metallic adds a touch of luxury whilst a hint of pink provides the perfect contrast to the dark and shadowy greens.” 

Trend 3: Pigment

Inspired by a recollective respect for the great old master’s studio, the 'Pigment' trend embraces the luxury of velvet fabrics and reflective metals

From chocolate suede and granite top grey to metallic rose gold, the palette embraces the luxury of velvet fabrics and reflective metals to create a sumptuous, safe space. 

Neville Knott, Crown Colour Consultant, explains: “This colour collection takes its inspiration from the artists pigments where layered paint builds on the palette to create deep textures that conjure up the atmosphere of the old masters. This influence embraces the luxury of velvet fabrics and reflective metals to layer textures in a way that reflects the atmosphere of the artist’s studio.”
