Our passion for decorating that started during the pandemic is still going strong. Never before has the demand for products that can transform a room been so sky-high.

And when it comes to giving your space a makeover, paint is key. The colour on your walls and ceiling has an enormous impact on a room; it immediately sets the mood, whether you want calm and peaceful or something more energising.

Paint is also great for expressing your personality, allowing you to play with colour in your home to create a bespoke space that reflects who you are and what makes you feel good.

For an inspiring selection of paint, head to Wickes. It’s new range features 11 lovely shades, ranging from warm neutrals and soft greys to serene blues and greens, and uplifting brights.


New on-trend shades have been introduced, such as the subtle blues of Ostrich Egg Blue and Turkish Blue, elegant Prussian Green and pale Fawn Green, rich Mustard Yellow and Lion’s Mane, the soft pink of Fairytale, and the chic neutral Soft Cashmere, one of the shades chosen by Grazia’s lifestyle editor, Rachel Loos, when creating her Laidback Luxe look for the new Wickes Colour Collection brochure.

‘Warm neutrals such as Soft Cashmere are having a moment, and they’re just the thing for creating a mood that’s totally feelgood but super-stylish too,’ says Rachel.

Once you’ve made your colour choice, make sure you select the right kind of paint for your project.
