Crown Colour Consultant Judy describes the Antidote trend as: “A palette of opposing colours that spans ethereal whites and pale greys through to a deep enveloping green. From the palest light reflective tones to the deepest light absorbing colours, using a single tone all over is intense and uncompromising.”

One of the key aspects of the trend is using one statement colour to paint the walls, ceiling and door frames to create a cocooning effect. It also explores the relationship between light and dark and encourages decorators to use these unique colours as a way of drawing a contrast.

Paying homage to natural materials and industrialism, Structures' is a contemporary and forward-thinking trend. Crown Colour Specialist Kathryn Lloyd says: “The colours in this trend reflect stones and concrete and within the palette are textured finishes which mimic the surface of the architectural materials. Earthy shades have been introduced into the palette to imitate the weathered, natural patterned look of concrete.”

Structures' colour palette is a celebration of concrete and matured surfaces. As if time is putting its stamp on usually flat, monotone finishes, interesting undertones and textures are appearing, creating a unique weathered look, which, from a practical perspective, makes this palette perfect for a high traffic room such as a kitchen or hallway.

The Naturally Perfect colour story takes inspiration from beauty and makeup palettes around the world, as well as celebrating the contours and architectural features of structual objects and buildings.

Crown Trend Consultant Justyna Korczynska says: “The roots of this trend sit with the strong desire, in our social media driven lives, to always present ourselves in the best possible light. The ultimate goal is to achieve a flawless, yet natural look. Makeup gives us confidence and makes us feel better about ourselves. Naturally Perfect presents beauty tips for interior design using a warm colour palette of powders and blushers.”
