Paint colours that make a statement

27 August 2020

Painting with a statement colour is the perfect way to inject warmth and personality into your home decor. Colour affects how we think and feel, so it’s important to choose the right hues to support our emotional and aesthetic needs; blues are especially relaxing in bedrooms and home offices whilst oranges are ideal for kitchen spaces. Here’s our guide for wow factor statement walls in some of this year’s most popular shades.

Pantone Colour of the Year 2020: Classic Blue

Shades of brilliant blue are especially great feature wall colours for relaxing spaces like bedrooms, home offices and reading rooms. Experiment with our seascape inspired Aria or night sky Aksel, drawing inspiration from this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year, ‘Classic Blue’. 

The colour blue offers endless opportunities to be creative, and infuses individuality into shower rooms and bathrooms. Envelope yourself in the tones of our strong, midnight blue Wyatt that contrasts beautifully with red-orange Reggie or extrovert Leif to create a statement colour scheme.

Pretty in Pink

The pink paint trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! A colour of many charms, pinks are notorious for bringing joy, bravery and attitude to interiors. Our brightest pink, the flirtatious and audacious Erin creates a real statement and brings elegance to bedrooms, dressing rooms and bathrooms. Add in our light grey paint Thor and pastel Piper for a colour scheme oozing with sass. 

If coral-blush pink shades tickle your fancy, you’ll love our Bea, Ida and Busby. Snuggle up and hunker down with our blushing Bea in bedrooms or paint powder rooms in Busby to bring out your inner glow. A little lighter than Busby, Ida sits comfortably with our paler coral-blush Eddie for a warm colour palette that compliments natural and light wood furnishings.

Dark & Dramatic

Dark paint colours can look daunting in the tin but once painted on the wall, they add a new dimension to the room. Enveloping shades like our velvety black Cole or dark and handsome Leon add height to living spaces and dining rooms, especially when the paint is carried onto skirting boards or cornices.

If Cole and Leon are a little too dark for your liking, why not try our deep gravel-grey Alfie? His chalky charm makes him the perfect statement shade for pairing with lighter and darker tones. Add in splashes of the quietly confident yellow Isaac and pale peppermint Joseph for a modern pastel colour scheme.
