There are so many different paint brands on the market. With new ones arriving everyday. It can be so confusing.
What are the Top Paint Brands you need to be looking for. Which brand do you go for? What brand is the best quality? I was interested to see what other people in the industry preferred and why. Keep these brands in mind when you are wondering which one to pick up.
Paint is the fastest way to really transform a space. Quality of the paint is a huge factor, not only in the finish but applying a really good quality paint is miles different than trying to do a good job with a bad paint quality.
I know what I like but I was keen to see what other creatives in the interior industry preferred and this is what their Top Paint Brands are.

Norma from The House that Will
Norma from the http://www.thehousethatwill.com is gifted and her standards are high, you can see that from every single detail in her work. Norma’s award winning blog is full of in depth tutorials and she knows her stuff. So I was eager to see what her go to paint brand was.
After trying many different paints, including so-called “luxury” brands, I have found that Colourtrend just can’t be beaten for quality. They’re also an Irish company, which is a bonus!
Colourtrend gives good coverage and a beautiful finish and has consistently proven to be the most hardwearing in our home over the years.
‘Praise Giving’ is a fantastic ‘greige’ neutral colour that will work almost anywhere. For a restful pale blue that doesn’t feel like a traditional baby boy’s room, ‘Water Droplet’ is simply perfect.
You can check out Normas blog at thehousethatwill.com. She was great tutorials and inspiration.

Wioleta Kelly for Abbeyfeale Interiors
Wioleta has amazing taste, and her own home transformations are amazing. I never know what to expect when I see her latest projects but there are always so impressive. She has clients all over Ireland so she knows what brands work best.
I love Colourtrend. As an interior designer it’s important to me to recommend and work with paint that is durable, has a great variety of colours and, of course, being Irish is a plus. Colourtrend has all that and more. I tested many different paint brands over the years (I always say that my home is my experimental field in that regard) and nothing beats Colourtrend for me.
The most important thing with paint is how many coats of paint will you need to paint your walls. I recently used a very popular high-end paint brand and was so disappointed when I realised that I needed to use 3 coats to cover walls painted in an off-white colour. That’s not what you want from a good paint!-durability – Spillages, dirt, marks – if your walls are painted with good paint, you will be able to wash all that from your walls, over and over again, without worrying that you wash away the paint.-as I mentioned earlier, it’s important to me that I recommend Irish based company over any other. Supporting local and our own is now more important than ever, I think.
My favourite colours are neutrals. I love Harrow Gate 0230, Mossy Shade 0195, Dave’s Den 0420 and Sheepskin 0566 just to name a few. All from Colourtrend fan deck.
Wioleta is extremely gifted and knows how to pull a room together. She is creative and has a real unique style and flair in her interior design. She also from time to time does online classes so make sure you keep and eye on her website. You can find her website here http://www.abbeyfealeinteriors.com

Lynn from My Old Brand New Home
Lynn makes great choices when it comes to her home and room design. I particularly love her home decor taste. She has an amazing eye for those finishing elements that can change the vibe of a room in an instant.
I try to use and trial different paint brands but time and time again I keep coming back to Crown Paint. It’s not over priced, very good quality and they’ve a huge range of colours and finishes from indoor to outdoor, walls to wood and everything in between. I guess you could say, they’re my old reliable.
As far as the high street paint brands go, Crown is my favourite to use. You know what you’re getting and the quality is solid. I’ve rarely had to do more than two coats on something and the coverage is nice and even. Plus you cannot beat the product line, there really is a colour for everything. The Crown Paint website is actually one of my go-to resources when planning a room colour scheme or mood board.
I’m definitely a pink girl but I’m really feeling browns and terracottas lately. It must be summer coming in but I can’t get enough of the tropical, orange hue. I think terracotta is such a beautiful colour that would go with a range of shades but my favourite to match it with would be pink and blue.
Lynn has great style and I love watching her on Instagram as she pulls a room together. You can follow her on Instagram @myoldbrandnewhome and you can read her latest blog posts via her website at http://www.myoldbrandnewhome.com
