Mix it up with new colours

Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 2:50pm

If you’re looking to spruce up a room, a lick of paint could be just the ticket as we spend more time at home.

This couldn’t be a better time for a fresh coat of paint as Colourtrend has just launched a stunning new palette featuring 28 new shades, as part of their 2020 Contemporary Collection.

Updated every three to four years to evolve with trends in colour and modern life, the Contemporary Collection’s new shades are a mix of luxurious neutrals and vibrant colours, split across four inherently Irish themes.

Taking inspiration from elements of modern Ireland, the four themes consist of The Irish Landscape, Architectural Ireland, Cultural Ireland and Nostalgic Ireland.

Whether it’s to inspire, calm or excite, each colour has a purpose and a story, capturing one or more of these themes, all while celebrating the unappreciated role of colour in our everyday life.

Speaking about Colourtrend’s 2020 Contemporary Collection launch, General Paints Group Head of Marketing Edel Nicholson commented: “We are delighted to finally launch the 28 new shades to our Contemporary Collection. The new shades featured are inspired by our first love, Ireland, but also created with people at the core - looking at what matters most to the people that inhabit a space.

“Researching the growing trends across fashion, interiors and design, we developed a palette that we are incredibly proud of and one that will resonate with consumers.”

The 28 new luxurious shades join Colourtrend’s iconic Contemporary Collection and are available in three interior finishes; interior matt, ceramic matt and soft sheen, in addition to three trim finishes: eggshell, satin and gloss.

Edel added: “Now more than ever, design and nostalgia are playing an integral part of people’s lives in their homes. We are working towards a faster pace and more digitally driven space.

“2020 has meant people are not only living in their homes but working, learning and entertaining, so we are spending a lot more time at home - expecting a lot more from our homes. Therefore the colours we put into our homes and spaces are now more important than ever.”

With 2020 forcing people to spend more time at home and around Ireland, people have fallen back in love with the country and colours of Ireland that they may have started to take for granted.

“Trends show that sea greens, muted heathers and skin tone terracotta’s are significant colours to watch out for this season,” concluded Edel.
