D.I.Y store Wickes announce range of 1970s paint tones and easy-use Paint Selector Tool...

With spring and summer fast approaching, Wickes say it's the ideal time to refresh and update your interiors in line with the season’s hot new trends. Homeowners are embracing the 70’s style with tones of burnt orange, emerald jewel hues and rich browns.

Not only can you shop from a selection of paint colours at Wickes, but you can also take advantage of their Paint Selector Tool, to help you find the ideal shade for your walls and ceilings. 

Wickes’ range of retro shades, including Maroon, Lion’s Mane and Estate Green, are perfect for creating a bold statement, whether used alone or combined to create a stylish two-tone wall. Decorate with botanical plants and experiment with textured materials to develop the bohemian atmosphere made famous in the 1970s. 

WhatHouse? have already given a nod to 1970s trend by predicting that rattan and wicker are proving increasingly popular and will be a hot topic for 2020, so we're thrilled to hear that Wickes have created a range of 1970s colours. 

Lewis Janes, Category Manager for Paint at Wickes, comments:

“Warm golds, wooden browns and khaki undertones will help enhance interiors without overwhelming spaces. They can create contrasting textures and patterns and offer a signature style.”

Wickes have a range of interior paint trends to be inspired by.

Try the Wickes Paint Selector Tool to find your perfect interior paint shade.
