We're so proud to announce today. the launch of the Livingetc x Lick Paint Palette 01.
For months, we've been developing these colours, the shades we think are perfect for right now.
For this is the summer of Neo Deco decor, our 2021 take on the pure drama, energy and optimism of all things art deco. Think rounded and smooth corners, the clean-cut lines, the geometric patterns, the glass, the velvet… but with an edginess that’s here to stay.
And it all begins with seven new paint colours we’ve created for Lick, our Palette 01. They’re the shades we’re craving most at the moment – hues that exude excitement and joy.
Ranging from the uplifting sky tones of Blue 10 and the subtle tint of red within the pastel softness of Pink 05 to the golden warmth of Yellow 03 and the dark richness of Purple 03, they’ll work together perfectly. Our palette box is meant to be played with, safe in the knowledge that whatever combination you choose will bring a burst of sunshine into your space.
How about a cool wall painted in White 03, enlivened with vibrant Blue 08 skirting and a ceiling in the soft eau de nil of Blue 09? Or, as above, make like one of the candy pink South Beach buildings we’re currently drawn to and go all-out in Pink 05, but bring it up to date by adding a datum line of Yellow 03. Whichever way you spin them, they’ll work harmoniously together – fresh, invigorating and exactly right for now.
We love how easy Lick makes it to decorate, offering an edited range of paints, wallpapers and blinds with quick delivery of peel-and-stick samples. Your new decor scheme is here.
