Throughout history, the development of colour for decoration has depended not only upon prevailing taste, but also on the pigments available. That’s why certain colours and colour schemes seem to suit certain building types and even particular locations. The availability of synthetic pigments in recent years has made virtually any colour available to the decorator, but historically authentic colours remain as appropriate today as they always have, because they owe something to nature and the environment.
Crown Trade’s Historic Colours Collection draws from architectural styles and movements from the late 16th century to the mid 20th century. Each colour palette is distinct in style and colour and reflects the architecture and design trends of the period. This beautiful collection offers a broad choice of colours still relevant for use in today’s buildings.
Most Historic Colours are available in a wide range of Crown Trade products, including Clean Extreme High Performance Emulsions, Matt Vinyl, Silk Vinyl, Mid Sheen, Satin Finish, Eggshell, Acrylic Eggshell and Full Gloss.
