Crown Paints Trends Panel 2011

Every year Crown Paints invite a diverse team of industry professionals together to form the Crown Paints Colour Panel. From this eclectic and energetic team of colour fanatics, influences are born and evolve.


Kathryn was invited to take part and really enjoyed sharing her passion for colour and brought together the Amethyst influence palette.

Simply beautiful; these tones conjure the dense, mysterious mineral colours from nature. They are everlasting shades that glisten from a mussel or an oyster shell as the light hits its surface, or the powerful yet ethereal blend of colours held within a thistle head.

Soft grey greens and amethyst purples combine effortlessly with a pop of sharp violet or mustard yellow. Natural materials, layers, and powdery textures with a flash of gloss or iridescence add a romantic dreaminess to this influence. Combine with dusk or candlelight to enhance their otherworldly beauty.


Kathryn Says:


"These colours are beautiful on their own, but when put together the palette feels original and distinctive"
