2011 colours – crown paints retrospective
On the 3rd November I had the pleasure of being invited to the Crown Paints Press Launch 2012 where they announced their new colour trends for the new year.
The event took place at the glamorous Swarovski Crystallized Lounge, a venue where I’ve been lucky enough to attend several industry events.
Even though this event was to showcase their 2012 spring/summer trends colours, I was really interested to see what their most popular colours were for 2011. I just loved this display, it reminded me of being in a sweet shop!
Looking at the Crown trend colours for 2011, the Top Sellers shows that homeowners are definitely getting more bold in their colour choices. The colourful Top Sellers was a pink called Fairy Dust, Ra Ra Red, Olive Press and the neutrals were Ivory Cream and Smoulder.
Good news is the most popular colours from this year will carried forward and promoted within the Crown Paints colour guide for 2012. This is a retail brochure produced annually which shows all Crown colours.
Next month I’ll be writing about the 2012 spring/summer trends colours which were chosen by Crown’s very own expert colour panel.
