Shake Up Your Space with Krylon Colour, Indoors or Out
(CLEVELAND — June 18, 2009) Economic news got you feeling the blues? A little jolt of spray paint colour from Krylon® can take care of that. Budget-consciousness doesn't always mean having to abandon your dreams for a more colourful living space. Using a little creativity and materials such as Krylon spray paint, you can invigorate attic treasures, enrich bargain finds, and affordably enhance your indoor and outdoor living spaces with the latest colours.
The key colour drivers this year are the economy, nature and fashion, says Donna Schroeder, Colour Marketing and Design Manager with Krylon Products Group. "Neutral colours are always popular during economic downturns, but today's more educated consumer loves colour and seeks shades that are enchanting and beautiful, honest and natural," Schroeder says.
Colour has been proven to affect mood. Magical colours infuse energy, counter despair and fulfill a genuine need for art, culture and beauty in life. Examples from Krylon's Indoor/Outdoor colour palette are Rich Plum and Jade, Raspberry and Hyacinth – floral hues that impart a dream-like aesthetic.
"At the same time, the 'green' movement is in everyone's consciousness so consumers are exploring natural, honest colours and textures." Schroeder says. She points to Pistachio and Pebble from the Krylon Indoor/Outdoor palette as colours that are ideal for refreshing and repurposing the home with soothing, nature-inspired tones. But mood modification from Krylon doesn't stop with colour.
To make it easier than ever for do-it-yourselfers to do their thing, Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Spray Paint features Krylon's exclusive EZ Touch 360°® Dial Spray Tip. The new tip, which sprays more like a professional spray gun, is making users smile because it enables more comfortable spray painting with greater coverage per pass, reduced overspray and less chance of runs or drips.
Facial expression research shows that users of the new tip are happier, more relaxed and more comfortable while spray painting. Rotating the dial with a gentle twist of the fingers allows comfortable spraying from any angle. Ninety-four percent of users said they would recommend the spray paint to a friend.
All Krylon aerosol paints are in compliance with the California Clean Air Act for Aerosol Coatings and the California Low Emissions and Reactivity Rule (CLEAR). The Krylon consumer products line includes a wide selection of paints and paint-related products. For inspiration and home improvement hints, visit the Krylon website at www.krylon.com.
