The ladies at Cool Edie’s are the latest stylists to team up with Murobond on their own paint range, and very cool it is too.
Jane Frosh and Lucy Weight have come up with four colours: a matt black (of course), a gold, an almost-emerald green (how on-trend) and a peach.
“We wanted a set of colours that really represented the Australian interiors industry as it stands and our Cool Edie’s approach to styling. A matt black (Cool Edie’s Religion), because it directly reflects on Cool Edie’s, our religion if you will. Who doesn’t love a matt black? It neutralises all other colours and adds a tough, chic element to any interior.
“The gold, well, does that need explaining?! Gold is a sense of humour, a touch of glam, a pop of insanity, hence the name Confetti Bomb. Boom! It just reeks of fun and parties and frocks and laughter.
“Peachy little Blousy Peony is feminine and whimsical… a calming hue to use in combo with any of the others. Soft, delicate, a great contrast. Wannabe is almost the Pantone colour of the year, Emerald, but not quite! It’a an Australian version; a little bit rougher around the edges, just like us!”
The pair, who are “incredibly excited,” hope to launch the range at Life Instyle next month, where they are doing live styling demos at new initiative Style Lab. “We are going to use one of the colours each day as a base point for our install. One day a gold feature.. maybe a painted fireplace, maybe a lamp. The next an emphasis on peachy hues, maybe in textiles or paper.”
