Crown's new textured paint range has to be felt to be believed.

Rebelling against the maximalist, patterns and pastel trends, these paints favour soft, warm and natural tones.

With a matt, grainy texture, theSophisticated Suede rangefrom Crown addsan extra dimension to colour,giving walls a look of brushed suede.

With not even the tiniest hint of a sheen, we think the paints make the walls look almost like they're covered in rustic, natural linens.

The colours are all muted, earthy and lovely – taupes, fawns, ecrus, muds and clays - all carefully developed to bring effortless sophistication to a home.

Colour and pattern have had far too long in the spotlight. Perhaps it's time for texture to reclaim its rightful place? You heard it here first...
