Paint Trends

In HL’s December issue we introduce some of our favourite paint trends that are a simple solution for a seasonal room update – such as the richly textured amethyst hue above. Accents of mustard and rust-effects add a touch of old-world glamour, resulting in an opulent space with plenty of warmth. Passionate about the environment, local paint manufacturer Harlequin’s range, including Rust It used above, is ecofriendly, avoiding the use of volatile organic compounds, which means it’s safe and of the highest quality. Comprising a black paint with metal filings, Rust It employs an activator, which triggers the rusting process of the metal. Be sure to coat it with a layer of varnish after to avoid wear and tear. But that’s enough of the technical details – we just love its antique-like finish and the way it complements this ultra-luxe theme.
