Renewing their partnership, Crown Paints are sponsoring the inspirational Good Homes room sets at the 2020 Ideal Home Show. Unsurprisingly, colour plays a huge role. A multitude of shades from Crown provide the perfect canvas for the styles on show, showcasing the latest hues and a push for sustainability.

Best of British

Muted, heritage shades can be mixed to create a quintessentially British look full of character. Crown’s earthy tones evoke warmth and reassurance, while their cool hues create a palette that is both bold and restful.

To tie up the look, neutral pops, such as a crisp white shade on the skirting boards, bring brightness to the space. The result is an elegant scheme that embraces colour confidence and oozes charm and personality.

Sustainability has become a much bigger part of our national consciousness, and in 2020 interior design is fully embracing it. Bringing the outdoors indoors with organic textures and natural colours is a great way of breathing fresh life and vitality into the home. Tonal shades of green from Crown can be paired to give the space a nature-inspired look and create a restful mood.

This goes hand in hand with Crown becoming the first paint manufacturer to use 100% recycled plastic for their paint packaging – vastly reducing waste going to landfill.

Global ideas

Interiors have been taking inspiration from global design to create Japandi, blending Japanese influences with the best of Scandinavian forms. Both aesthetics celebrate beautifully crafted pieces and natural materials, while highlighting the ‘less is more’ approach to sustainability.
