Wondering what some of the hot colours for 2013 are? Wonder no more! PARA Paints Colour Forecast Palette consists of 75 of PARA’s hottest trend colours. The vibrant & edgy palette ranges from hues of mauve & lavender, to peacock teals & sapphire seas, to contemporary accents of tangy oranges and happy yellows. The colours were selected to encourage creative energy and are complemented with neutrals of bleached translucent pastels, faded jeans, and tactile earth tones. These are just a few of the beautiful colours that caught my eye and have got my furniture makeover juices flowing!
Now that you’ve got all these great colours to choose from, how do you figure out what colours go together? PARA’s got you covered with their ColourSquare Colour Coordinating Tool. You’ll be an expert at combining colours for walls, draperies, rugs, and accessories in no time!

With this, people will be able to use the in-store PARA display to help create an individual colour palette of cutting-edge, trend colours that have been professionally-matched with stylish neutrals, thus making the task of choosing colours easier, faster and more cohesive for the consumer.”
