The publication follows its Exterior Colour Book and offers advice on creating inclusive environments for those with dementia, autism and visual impairments
Paint manufacturer Crown Paints has launched the Interior Colour Book, the second in a series of colour inspiration guides.
Crown is an industry leader in the psychology and application of colour and the guide brings together an expert team of colour specialists to help architects and designers specify colour effectively across different sectors.
The social impact of colour
Colour is key when it comes to creating accessible social environments that cater for people with dementia, autism and visual impairments.
Two leading objectives of the book are to recognise the potential of colour to foster inclusivity and to explain how it can be used to create environments for everyone.
Harnessing colour psychology
Interior design goes beyond simple colour palettes and the book considers the science behind colour and the impact it has on human behaviour.
Colour is a subjective matter and, on many occasions, there is neither a right nor a wrong answer. However, by analysing its basic properties - such as hue, saturation and lightness - Crown reveals how its application can change our perception of colour and the effects it has on us.
The Crown Colour Service
The Crown Colour service offers a suite of practical tools, including colour consultations and innovative Pure Paint Samples, which are fully recyclable and made using real paint.
Pure Paint Samples are now available in A5 (the largest format on the market) to offer a mess-free way to test colour on a large scale.
The Crown Colourkey tool
Crown has launched a colour measurement and look-up tool called Colourkey. The pocket-sized tool for specifiers comes with a free-to-download app.
Colourkey measures surface colour using advanced LED technology and finds the closest match using a database of over 6,000 colours on almost any surface. Colourkey can also suggest colour schemes to choose from.
The Interior Colour Book follows the Exterior Colour Book, which was devised by Crown to demystify colour specification for a range of exteriors, from masonry facades to doors and window frames. The guide features individual colour palettes for different regions and architectural styles in the UK.
Both books are available by placing an enquiry on the website below.
