New extended colour guide showcases Crown Trade’s historic and classic shades
If you’re looking for a complete guide to historic and classic shades, then Crown Trade’s new colour card fits the bill.
Crown Trade has brought together shades from both its Historic Colours and Classic Collection into a new style guide, to give you the complete picture on these beautiful hues.
The 14-page guide includes the Crown Trade Historic Colours Collection, a total of 120 shades influenced by eight distinctive architectural and design styles including Palladian and Neo-Classical, Regency, Arts & Crafts, Gothic Revival, Victorian Eclectic, Art Deco and post-war ‘50’s Sketchbook.
And now for the first time, these historic colours are joined by the Crown Trade Classic Collection – a selection of 30 beautiful, timeless shades in classic neutral colours, which have been hand-picked from an extensive range of palettes.
We’ve produced the guide to bring the colours to life and help professional decorators and their clients understand more about the context and influence of the shades.
Additional content includes inspiring photography and an insight into the history and background to each of the colour palettes to really bring the story of these shades to life.
As well as being able to choose authentic and accurate colours with confidence, decorators can also put their trust in the high quality of Crown Trade products, which are manufactured with more than 200 years’ experience.
Deborah Orr, Marketing Manager of Crown Paints’ Trade brands, said: “Crown Trade Historic Colours and the Classic Collection are available in a wide-range of Crown Trade products.
“This means decorators and their clients can get the best of both worlds, choosing authentic colours from a selection of quality coatings that are designed for modern living.
“The choice includes Crown Trade Clean Extreme, which is often selected for heavy duty areas due to its super scrubbable qualities, allowing surfaces to be returned to their pristine condition time and time again.
“As well as Crown Trade Clean Extreme, most Historic and Classic Colours are also available in finishes including Crown Trade Matt Vinyl, Silk Vinyl, Mid Sheen, Satin Finish, Eggshell, Acrylic Eggshell and Full Gloss.
“We can even offer some shades in our flame retardant coating, Crown Trade Timonox.
With the preservation of historic and prestigious buildings so important, this system has the added benefit of providing a finish in-keeping with the décor of the interior environment, in a coating that slows down the spread of flame.”
