Crown Paints Reveals Spring/Summer 2012 Colour Trends
The company is renowned for being at the forefront of colour forecasting and it has launched four distinctive looks in the s/s 2012 collection consisting of ‘New Direction’, ‘Modern Nostalgia’, ‘Summer Jewels’ and ‘Surreal Botanical’.
One of the concepts was to think beyond the traditional colour groupings like ‘pastels’, ‘brights’, ‘neons’ and ‘neutrals’.
Crown Paints Colour Specialist, Kathryn Lloyd, said: “Colour is our passion. It informs and drives everything we do, so we are delighted to be able to unveil our 2012 trends. The colour palettes we have created feature the tones and shades we expect to see defining the design landscape going forward.”
This features bold blends of acid neons and neutral shades, such as bubblegum pink with acidic chlorophyl brights. It reportedly captures the spirit of the post-industrial age.
Ulster Weavers Union Jack Flag Pink range coincides with this collection perfectly!
This collection has a more delicate and subtle palette which is shaped by the Great British seaside. It offers a sophisticated take on pastels based on vintage themes.
Our Harrison Stripe range fits this theme impeccably due to its soft blue stripes but we also have homeware products specific to the seaside.
This assortment of shades has been inspired by retro Palm Springs and ties together blue tones alongside yellows and pinks to create a fresh, clean and upbeat palette.
A fresh and funky pastel design is Kaleidoscope by Ulster Weavers which is based on the spirograph drawing and therefore is bright and cheery. Install the trend into your home with the help of our tea and kitchen cosies in the Kaleidoscope range.
The final 2012 collection is a lush mixture of emerald greens with bold bright shades to create a visual clash of the natural and the man-made.
A range that has just arrived and which is bang on trend is the Countryside Cats collection which is based on nature and greenery and the tea towels are just gorgeous.
The V&A Golden Lily range is also an on-trend floral design.
