“‘Colour Trends Volume III’, with the theme ‘Be Home,’ aims to inspire the consumers to appreciate more what they have and how easy and practical it is to give a new look to their home. They will experience the joy of being rejuvenated and refreshed, which is exactly what ‘Be Home’ theme is all about”, explains Maricor L Cruz, Regional Designer - MENA, Jotun Paints.

The ‘Arabian’ trend focuses on the things and colours that are unique in this region – dunes, honey, potteries, and inspires to bring these authenticities to your home, thus offering a palette of reflection of these inspiration – ‘Aasal’, ‘Qarmedi’, ‘Ramli’, ‘Ghoroub’, ‘Mohair’, ‘Naft’, ‘Kuthban’, ‘Lolo’.

The third volume of Jotun Colour Trends is the outcome of the recent ‘Colour Trends workshop’.

The group collaborated and came up with the trend forecasts for 2012-2013, which includes the ‘Be Home’ trends.
“Our region is beautiful and very unique compared to the rest of the world. These in return reflects different moods and colour palettes we have. We cannot just adapt colours that are coming from Europe for example, because it doesn’t reflect who and what we are. We needed to create a palette that suits us”, added Cruz.
