Ombre walls, stencils and other paint effects are rising in popularity for 2018.

Crown's linear trend gives fresh meaning to Bauhaus, combining grey with watery blues and muted pinks.

Judy Smith, Crown's Colour consultant explains the look: “Linear is about working with the simplicity of straight lines; keeping to slim black outlines in furniture and lighting as well as on walls gives a new and sophisticated look, a modern elegance."
