A warm and welcoming atmosphere is essential when entertaining. Rich, historically inspired, colours in a flat matt finish set the scene perfectly. This look is achieved using “Elegant Mode” and “Middle Lavender” from the Crown Colourmix range, along with Antique Cream Quick Dry Gloss.
Tips: If you need a finish that’s not available in your chosen colour many outlets offer a paint colour mixing and matching service. Splashes are dangerous things – especially if you’re painting around carpet or an expensive piece of furniture. Dust sheets are inexpensive and really are a worthwhile investment.
Enjoy tea and cakes with “Powder Blue” BreatheasyMatt as the backdrop for this Georgian inspired room. Complete the look with upcycled vintage accessories and furniture with a distressed effect, using “Milk White” Quick Dry Gloss.
Tips: Use matchpots or left over paint on accessories for the finish touch to your room makeover. Check batch numbers on the can. Sometimes colour can vary slightly from batch to batch, if you need to use more than one can mix the two together to ensure consistency.
Bathrooms really benefit from fresh colours, citrus tones or crisp aquas (blues or greens) all work well. Always keep in mind that a wipeable finish capable of withstanding condensation is best. In this case we’ve paired “Hot Toddy” Breatheasy Mid Sheen with Pure Brilliant White Kitchen & Bathroom Mid Sheen.
Tips: Not every colour off the shelf will be available in the finish you require so consider the finish you need for the function of the room first. Don’t be afraid to ask in-store for advice on colour, preparation or finish, the staff will be more than willing to help you.

Bright and airy but also functional. Crown Kitchen and Bathroom mid sheen is a multi-surface paint so you can paint walls, wood and metal all in one go.
Tips: When choosing paints for functional areas always check that the product is up to the task. Crown Kitchen and Bathroom paint with mouldguard is designed to resist steam & condensation, can be wiped clean and prevents the build up of mould.
Off whites and pale neutrals can add extra dimension to a detached home. The same effect can be achieved on semi d’s with a little cooperation and application of the same colour to both homes.
Tips: Be mindful that textured or porous surfaces such as pebbledash can take much more paint to cover than smooth surfaces. Seal absorbent surfaces with a 15% diluted first coat of Weathercoat.
