Crown Vintage Paints

With so many great wallpapers available, it would be tempting to paper every wall in the house, but to make it a bit easier on the eye, you may want to paint a few, which is where Crown’s new range Crown Vintage comes in.

Created in association with Wayne and Geraldine Hemingway, whose love of all things vintage is no secret, the range consists of 30 flat matt emulsions. The colours are inspired by music, fashion, film, art and design from the 1940s up to the 1980s, and have names such as Make Do and Mend, Mop Top Mania, Beat Generation Blue and Free Love.

You can read more about the range on the Crown Paints Blog or buy them exclusively at Homebase, priced £22.50 for a 2.5L tin.
