NEW ‘Vintage’ Crown paints

June 9, 2011

Today, Crown has launched a new paint range called Vintage, in association with Wayne and Gerardine Hemingway. It’s a collection of 30 matt emulsions and will be sold in Homebase later this month (for £22.99 per 2.5l) coinciding neatly with the upcoming Vintage at Goodwood (well, actually it’s now at Southbank, London, cough) festival and the 60th anniversary of the Festival of Britain. The colours are ‘inspired by music, fashion, film, art and design from the 1940s to the 1980s’ – I like their retro, groovy names such as ‘Chelsea Girl’ and ‘Free Love’, maan.

Here’s the 1970s-inspired ‘Bell Bottoms’ orange shade…and the 80s-tastic ‘Shoulder Pad Purple’ colour:

And, just for fun, here are Gerardine and Wayne (holding daffodils, of course) in what appears to be Paddington Bear’s house– Ellie

    Oh good, another paint chart book I can add to my steadily growing pile, whilst inevitably painting every wall a neutral shade. One day I shall be brave. The purple is especially appealing.

    It does take a lot of guts to go for strong colours like many people I end up taking the easy option of neutral a bit to often

    I’m totally down with the crown well done vintage from john metcalf the painter
